Jerry Grey is known to most of the world by his crime writing pseudonym, Henry Cutterâa name that has been keeping readers on the edge of their seats for more than a decade. Recently diagnosed with early onset Alzheimerâs at the age of forty-nine, Jerryâs crime writing days are coming to an end. His twelve 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?
