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 Alzheimer's, and his writing life has ended.
But the stories haven't. 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.
If that's true, then why are so many bad things happening?
Why are people dying?
