At a book-signing event he meets an old colleague who, unbeknownst to him, has carried a grudge against Jack for thirty years. Then murders start popping up in and around Jack’s peaceful beach town – murders that mimic the plots in Jack’s books and make him a suspect.

It is a chilling tale of twists and turns, worthy of Jack’s imagination, but this time he doesn’t know how the story will end.
