Jerry Grey is known to most of the world by his crime-writing pseudonym, Henry Cutter - a name that has been keeping readers at the edges of their seats for more than a decade. Recently diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's at the age of 49, Jerry's crime-writing days are coming to an end. His 12 books tell stories of brutal murders committed by bad men, of a world out of balance, of victims finding the darkest forms of justice. As his dementia begins to break down the wall between his life and the lives of the characters he has created, Jerry confesses his worst secret: The stories are real. He knows this because he committed the crimes. Those close to him, including the nurses at the care home where he now lives, insist that it is all in his head, that his memory is being toyed with and manipulated by his unfortunate disease. But if that were true, then why are so many bad things happening? Why are people dying?
