Possibly the best thriller novel I've read all year. The plot twists are so clever, no matter how many mystery thrillers you read, you're bound to be surprised.

The police pick up what appears to be a homeless crazy guy and bring him to the high security ward at a NYC psychiatric hospital where he'll be evaluated and after checking his health, if deemed not a danger to himself or others, will be released on his own recognizance. That's pretty much all I can tell you without giving anything away. Is he crazy or not? Is he out to save NYC, or what is his goal? Just know it's not at all what you think it will be... GREAT READ!
