Pepper rallies three other inmates in a plot to fight back: Dorry, an octogenarian schizophrenic; Coffee, an African immigrant with severe OCD; and Loochie, a bipolar teenage girl. Battling the pill-pushing staff, one another, and their own minds, they try to kill the monster that's stalking them. But can the Devil die?

intriquing premise, so-so plotline
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Certainly it's a challenge to write a book that takes place in one setting alone. I got a little bored in there.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Premise is compelling - guy gets arrested and thrown into a mental hospital even though it seems everyone, himself, cops, doctors, knows he's not sick.The main conflict flatlines - man/beast patient terrorizes other patients.
Did Victor LaValle do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Yes, very much so. It's an interesting story how he drew his characters, which LaValle speaks to in his acknowledgments and also talked about to Terry Gross on NPR.
