Someone else was looking for the same book and was solved by There.

Apparently there are two storylines

Kym, thanks for noting the other duplicate thread (not due to a site glitch). I've deleted it.

Please only post a book request once. You can bump it every 30+ days (or sooner if you remember more information).

Danielle | 5 comments Thank you! Sorry I don't know how my post posted twice, I literally only did it once.

Danielle | 5 comments This book rang a bell and I thought it was the one. But its not (it rang a bell because I have read it before). Really good book just not the one

No worries. Once in a while the site glitches and a post is duplicated. In these cases the timestamp is identical. Sorry if I misunderstood.

What's the woman's job at the mental institution/hospital/asylum - psychiatrist, nurse, administrator, etc.?

Early in the story, what does she notice that's "wrong"?

What's the genre - mystery, medical thriller, horror, etc.?

Danielle | 5 comments I'd say a mystery/thriller.

She worked as a nurse at the hospital whilst her husband was a writer for a newspaper. They had a young child together.

She and another of the nurses noticed that patients weren't being treated as they should. So her husband went undercover and got admitted to the hospital. The doctor found out that he was undercover so to cover his tracks for the way they were treating patients he made the husband disappear. That's all I can really remember, hope this helps.

Does anything on this list of Fictional Mental Hospital Novels look familiar?
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/6...

Any chance the reporter/journalist is her ex-husband?

You may want to take another look at Breaking the Silence. Very similar post.

Amazon review:

Chamberlain thoroughly described experiments used on psychiatric patients in the 1950s combined with a complicated storyline of inter-related characters affected by these experiments

Danielle | 5 comments Thank you. Sounds like this is the right book. I don't remember it having two story lines which is possibly why I got confused. I have read quite a few books by Diane so remember having read a book with this description. Thanks!!
