really liked it

Picked this up at a Library book sale since it looked interesting. A murder mystery, told from the eyes of a young man who hears voices and has been committed to a mental hospital by his family. The murder takes place in the hospital and circumstantial evidence points to one of the other patients in this hospital. A young woman prosecutor hears of it and comes to investigate it after finding it fits in with some previous serial murders outside of the hospital. She befriends the young man and another hospital inmate who is just there temporarily for observation before going to trial for the murder of a priest who died in a fire he set. The 3 conduct an in house investigation and before the murder is solved they have a couple more suspicious deaths.
