His novels tell of brutal murders and bad men.
But was it just his imagination?
Jerry Grey is better known as crime writer Henry Cutter - whose twelve books kept readers gripped for over a decade. Now he's been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers, and his writing life has ended.
But the stories haven't. And as his control loosens, Jerry confesses his worst secret: the books are real. He remembers committing the crimes.
His friends, family and carers say it's all his head. He's just confused.
But if that's true, then why are so many bad things happening? Why are people dying?
