The first of the Bill Crane books, Murder in the Madhouse is not really a favorite, but it might interest you. In one of Donald Hamilton's Matt books, Matt Helm is held in an asylum, for a while, but he escapes fairly quickly.

Totally unrelated to this, when looking for the Latimer book I found The Rundown by James Magnuson.Someone earlier was asking about hard boilef baseball books. This fits the bill, but I've never seen anything else by the author and I don't remember it. It was copyright in 1977. Mark
