Awakening in a hospital with a scar on his head and no memory of being found holding a knife over his ex-fiancâee's murdered body, crime novelist Drew Danner struggles to reconstruct clues to determine his own guilt or innocence.

Blackwell North Amer
Drew Danner, a crime novelist with a house off L.A.'s storied Mulholland Drive, awakens in a hospital bed with a scar on his head and no memory of being found convulsing over his ex-fiancee's body the previous night. He was discovered holding a knife, her blood beneath him. He himself doesn't know whether he's guilty or innocent. To reconstruct the story, the writer must now become the protagonist, searching the corridors of his life and the city he loves.
Drew finds himself at the center of an ongoing murder investigation and the target of a series of increasingly bizarre psychological assaults that seem the result of his own dark imagination. As he closes in on clues he might or might not have left, another young woman is similarly murdered, and he has to ask difficult questions not only of others but also of himself.

I have to give it extra credit for originality, sort of writing the book backwards. Aside from that, though, Hurwitz is an okay writer but in my opinion will never be a great one

A very good read. Keeps you guessing till the end. Drags a bit at times with the descriptions which can be lengthy. All in all I would recommend it.

Awesome story! I wasn't sure who-dun-it any quicker than the protagonist; kept you guessing. I really enjoyed the writing style and plot. Great read.
