Book Description

Originally published in 1863, Hard Cash was Reade's polemical expos of the horrors routinely perpetrated against the inmates of England's insane asylums. Alfred Hardie, victim of an embezzlement perpetrated by his father, is tricked into entering an asylum; once there, he finds it almost impossible to prove himself sane.
