Unrestrained: A Paranormal Psychological Thriller (Rancor, #2)Det. Haley Wanat sat at her desk across from Det. Becker. “Those papers are so musty I can smell them from here. What are you reading?”

“I’m looking through these medical records from 1969,” Det. Becker said, brushing a dry flat centipede from a page. “I’m looking for the blood type of the patient Susan Knight and the orderly that was murdered.

Unrestrained: A Paranormal Psychological Thriller (Rancor, #2)Tim Chandler was walking around the exterior of Sand Piper Bluff Apartments, appearing to be inspecting the foundation, when Det.

TWELVE

Unrestrained: A Paranormal Psychological Thriller (Rancor, #2)Oh, the pain in her hip, it was almost unbearable.

Unrestrained: A Paranormal Psychological Thriller (Rancor, #2)“Everybody up, everybody down, it’s snack time,” the guard said over the loudspeaker.

It was Sunday and the patients were allowed to be in their rooms in the early evening, and that was exactly where Maggie was. Lying on her bed as her heart raced.

Claudia would be getting off the bus soon and she would give her a ride through the forest to the apartment building. The old sanatorium sat over half a mile away from the road on the edge of a bluff.
