THE BACK WARD OF HARWELL STATE MENTAL HOSPITAL WAS A PLACE NO ONE WANTED TO DISCUSS--NOT THE DOCTORS, NOT THE PATIENTS, NOT THE VISITORS. IT WAS WHERE THE CRIMINALLY INSANE, THE HOMICIDAL MANIACS, AND THE SEX DEVIANTS WERE IMPRISONED. AND IT WAS WHERE DANIEL COLLIER HAD BEEN COMMITTED BY A STAFF OF INSENSITIVE OVERWORKED DOCTORS.

DANIEL COULDN'T REMEMBER WHEN THE LIVING NIGHTMARE HAD STARTED. HIS DAYS AS AN ENGLISH PROFESSOR HAD FADED FROM HIS MEMORY, AND EVEN THE NEAR-FATAL AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT SEEMED LIKE A DREAM. BUT REALITY WAS INESCAPABLE: DANIEL WAS AN INVALID, WITHOUT THE POWERS OF SPEECH OR MOVEMENT.

THE PHYSICAL PAIN WAS BEARABLE BECAUSE DANIEL STILL HAD A WORKING, VIABLE MIND. HE WAS A THINKING, FEELING HUMAN BEING--NOT MENTALLY INCOMPETENT AS THE DOCTORS SUSPECTED. AND SINCE HE WAS UNABLE TO CONVEY HIS SANITY, DANIEL LIVED IN CONSTANT TORMENT--ALONE, POWERLESS, DESPERATE, AND FRUSTRATED--AND FORCED TO SUFFER IN SILENCE.
