Ashley Roper, Gulf War combat veteran, is now a writer and tabloid publisher in Charleston, SC. The nearby Bay Area State Hospital (BASH) for the criminally insane, is offering up a rich variety of potentially juicy stories including an escaped murderer, a patient released by a jury, the violent death of a staff member, and illicit drugs finding their way through the barbed wire perimeter of BASH. Ash decides to investigate from the inside, but through a series of unforeseen circumstances, ends up trapped in the hospital as a patient. Ash ́s headstrong wife and her lawyer buddy, a roadside cafe owner, a sexy weather girl, a meth tweaking biker, a crooked cop, a homicide detective, and a variety of incompetent bureacrats cross paths in this engaging and dramatic adventure. Parts of the story are narrated by hard drinking, blues playing psychiatrist, "Doc" Kerrigan, who lands squarely in the middle of the dilemma. The Napa Valley Register calls BASH "an enthralling read."
