The Gift Of The Dead
(and the confusing decadence of madness)
Do the mistreatments of our past, justify our mistreatment of others?
Does the desire to be with someone justify doing whatever it may take to get them?
How does someone go from a religious and sheltered childhood to the violent and obsessed man, currently restrained in the seat across from you?
These are the questions plaguing a psychiatrist, court-mandated to unravel the mind of John Lensing – a patient in a mental institution awaiting trial for murder, rape and numerous other crimes. What he finds is a labyrinth of madness tormenting a confused individual whose choices were never his own to make.
