HUMAN CRIME. INHUMAN PUNISHMENT. The New Rome Correctional Institute, better known as "The Hill" in the Massachusetts town that surrounds it, wasn't always a prison.

The New Rome Correctional Institute, better known as "The Hill" in the Massachusetts town that surrounds it, wasn't always a prison. It was once an asylum for the mentally ill, where therapies were thinly veiled tortures, and the afflicted rarely recovered. But the institution's most notorious incident occurred when the patients turned against their captors, setting many of the buildings on fire, and killing numerous staff members. For nearly twenty years it sat vacant before its reconstruction to house criminals... Tim Saget is fresh from the correctional officers' training facility as the newest recruit to walk the halls of The Hill. But he's been there before - in disturbing dreams that have him wandering through the building's eerie corridors. Even stranger is the increasingly erratic behavior of the inmates, who appear to be suffering varying degrees of madness. As a dense, suffocating fog rolls in to enshroud the facility, Tim begins to uncover The Hill's darkest secrets - one more horrific than the next. It is now terrifyingly clear that the prisoners are channeling the spirits of the patients who once lived there. They want freedom just as much as their human hosts do - and they believe Tim is their key...

    Not Now...Mommy's Reading

    This is the first book I've read by R. Patrick Gates but it won't be the last. "The Prison" is a MUST READ for horror fans! Not your average ghost story, these spirits do more than just "go bump in the night"! The author provides plenty of visual descriptions that wreak havoc on the imagination. Several scenes had me cringing as I read them and once or twice I had to put down the book and take a mental break after a particular scene left me thinking, "Oh no he didn't!" But he does and he does it This is the first book I've read by R. Patrick Gates but it won't be the last. "The Prison" is a MUST READ for horror fans!

But he does and he does it well! I would definitely recommend "The Prison" to anyone looking for a sleepless night or two. The characters are great, the plot is amazing and "Good Old Doc"....absolutely depraved! Definitely not for the weak stomached or faint of heart...

    I admit that while reading this book I actually gagged, twice. Yeah some pretty damn good descriptions going on in here. The content freaky at times sure but a damn good read!! Once you get started you can't put it down. A lot of what happens/happened you can see happening in early mental institutions where the cure was quite often worse than the disease and that kind of Torment, anguished energy is indeed likely to be left behind.

Adding in the energy of people either struggling with what they have done or in denial of any wrong doing once the building is remodeled into a prison leaves it ripe for mayham. I love this book.

    Feeling pretty proud with myself that I managed to get past the scene where the woman with the gaping vagina, who needs a man with a massive cock to satisfy her, gets raped to death while still managing multiple orgasms. Yes, it's *that* kind of book. Didn't finish, so no idea if it got any better than that. The setting was pretty creepy.

    Not bad. This is the only book I've read by this author, and while I won't necessarily seek out more of his work, I will certainly pick it up if I find it used/cheap. Very graphic horror and entertaining but overly long - no need to repeat the same phenomenon with every prisoner. Not bad.

    meh the beginning was pretty boring and I almost just gave up, but then it picked up a bit in the middle so I decided to see it thouogh. Unfortunately, I just could not finish the book. I had zero interest in the book so skipped the last 50 pages.

    This book ended 5 times before the book actually ended! Awful book after the first half was over.
