Kurzbeschreibung

“Those who the Gods wish to destroy, they first make mad.”

** From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author J.F.Penn **

LONDON. When a prominent psychiatrist is found murdered in the old hospital of Bedlam, Detective Sergeant Jamie Brooke finds herself investigating the history of madness to fathom the motive. Blake Daniel, a reluctant psychic, helps her to research the case, only to discover that his own family are entwined with the shadowy forces that seek to control the minds of the mad.

As the body count rises, and those she loves are threatened, Jamie discovers that the tendrils of conspiracy wind themselves into the very heart of the British government. Can she stop the killer before madness takes its ultimate revenge?

˃˃˃ A thriller with an edge of the supernatural, Delirium is a story of love for family, revenge for injustice and the question of whether we all sit on the spectrum of madness somewhere.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow, wow and more wow. 31. August 2015
Von Spineless Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Delirium blew me away and I have to admit I wasn't expecting it to. J.F Penn set the bar so high with Desecration (The London Psychic Book 1) that I didn't see how she could reach it again. I stand corrected. In fact I sit chewing-my-nails awake-till-the-small-hours-reading corrected.
This is another wrenching read that offers so much on every level. It's an awesome action-packed ride that opens with a shockingly vivid and creepy murder. A number of equally horrible deaths follow, impacting on Detective Sergeant Jamie Brooke as she grieves for her daughter and tries to continue without her.
The serial killings are so strange and macabre that Jamie is drawn back to life by each subsequent death. Her investigation is the crutch her broken heart needs and once again the character development is stellar. We also learn more about Blake and the hardships of his childhood. The influence of poor parenting is further developed and with greater sophistication, since Blake's Mother loved him and tried to do her best for him, but failed very badly. The same could be said of his Father, but both parents placed the expectations of their culture ahead of their son's wellbeing.
The ugliness of corruption returns in this book, but it is even nastier and further reaching than in Book 1.
However, the central theme of this novel is sanity. How do you even define what is normal? And how does society treat those who clearly fall beyond its definition of sane? Some information was glazed over, for example the existence of drugs that can help mental conditions without turning their users into zombies, but this was a sideline to the specific situations in the story and might easily have turned it into a lecture.
Delirium is a "tale full of sound and fury", but it signifies a great deal. Insights into the human condition come thick and fast to create a work that leaves the reader breathless and satisfied. That said, I can't wait to read Book 3.
Warning: graphic violence and vivid imagery abound.
The research is excellent, as usual, but Delirium also has all the power and gravitas of Desecration.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Jolts Interest - A great story 29. Juli 2014
Von Elisabeth Zguta - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Amazing intrigue! The reader is immediately at the edge of their seat in the opening scene, where we witness Dr. Christian Monro's physical and emotional trauma while being murdered. We are brought into the death scene, each agonizing step of the way. The detail and the pace are excellent. The suspense is high voltage.

The protagonist Detective Sergeant Jamie Brooke once again is challenged with high stakes. As in the first book of the series, Jamie is going through hell emotionally after the loss of her child, but she is also engaged in the case and wants to understand the true crime. The heroine strives to remain objective while gathering evidence, hoping to see the truth. Along the way many twists in the case elude her, and attempt to veer her from the true crime. She follows the leads and takes the reader down a road of unexpected horrors. Jamie is not faint of heart, but a woman who makes the tough decisions; she is the protector of her co-workers and friends. There is hope - as she is faced with danger even in her most fragile hours, yet somehow finds the strength to prevail.

The subject matter of this novel immediately jolts interest - the history of mental illness treatment and the reminder of abuse done to the mentally ill. This is a topic I too have strong feelings about, and so this story truly hit my heartstrings. The research was done well, as to be expected by this author who always delivers well developed background. This story is not for those wanting a light read, because the reader will be left with some concepts to think about - maybe even choices on how to view others who may not be as fortunate as most. In this world it is too easy to forget about those who suffer with mental illness. Society has swept them from public view, but we know in our heart that more needs to be addressed. I thank the author for writing this riveting story and bringing this topic to the forefront.
To date this is my favorite of J.F.Penn's books. I truly enjoy reading about Jamie, and this is a great series. Delirium is for anyone who enjoys detective horror thrillers, and is a definite must read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Like Nancy Drew on acid. 21. August 2015
Von Gillian Felix - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
J.F. Penn’s Delirium is like Nancy Drew on acid. J.F. delivers a sensory overload on this one, by that I mean the way she describes everything from the oil slick on the street to the smell of rotted bodies, really takes the reader to that place in the story. At times I felt like there was too much information that didn’t really move the scenes forward but other times they worked really well. These books are not for the faint of heart, if you really get engaged in a book to where you smell and see the locations be aware.

I would have loved to learn more about Blake Daniel, I loved his character from the first novel in the series, Desecration. We got a little teaser about him when we found out that his estranged father was dying and he returned home. We even met his mother, but all of that was glazed over.
Blake has special powers that allows him to see the history of an object by holding on to it. Neat right? Not so much if you’re Blake, some of the things that he sees are absolutely horrendous! One scene that stuck out in my mind was of him seeing demons opening his dying father’s skull and eating his brain. Blake finds his father’s grimoire, and of course I wanted to know more, but Blake was kidnapped and that was kind of the end of that.

I would have liked to see more interaction between Blake and Jamie, they have such awesome similarities; they are both such broken characters and it left me yearning for them to turn to each other. Their paths crossed when Jamie asked him to help her on a case she was working on (Jamie is a detective), but Blake declined because he was dealing with facing his dying father who treated him like a demon seed all his life. By the way, his father was a man of the cloth. Jamie and Blake meet again towards the end. I’m not going to say more on that because I don’t want to give away anything. I would have prefered to read more about Blake than the politician. I love the way it ended, it had me shouting “you go girl!” about Jamie’s character’s making the decision to make her own destiny.

Overall I enjoyed this story but it didn’t connect for me like Desecration. Thank goodness I bought the next book in the series, Deviance I started reading it right away. It is the final book in the trilogy and I can’t wait to see where J.F. takes it.

One of the things I really love about J.F.’s novels are the research that she puts into it to make sure everything is accurate. At the back of the book she shares her experiences and I really appreciate that. Thank you J.F. for reminding us that we all have a little “crazy” in us and that is quite normal.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Love it and looking forward to #3! 19. Januar 2016
Von Roland J. Denzel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is my third or fourth read by JF Penn and I enjoyed it quite a bit. When I started the series, I was concerned that the psychic elements would be cheesy, but they are handled brilliantly. Love it and looking forward to #3!
5.0 von 5 Sternen This Detective will NOT give in or give up 19. Juli 2015
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It's always exciting when people find things out that go against all their preconceived ideas and long-held beliefs. But then are open enough to give the new information time to prove itself. Our tenacious Detective continues dealing with her daughter's illness which has a big impact and becomes her motivation in continuing her pursuits.

There's action, intrigue, evil government agencies at work, mind altering chemicals on the loose, major discoveries she's been searching for, and the thought that just maybe she...(sorry-no spoilers here). Poor Blake has a bit of a rough time but comes to some of his own conclusions.

I charged my way through this series right after the ARKANE series. What a ride! J.F. Penn has quickly become one of my favorite authors to follow. Why didn't I find her works sooner?

My only problem with the book is the next one is still one month away, and I want to know if Blake OK and what the Detective decides to do.
