Publisher's Summary

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?

A little predictable but enjoyable nonetheless

I enjoyed the way the narrator connected with the story. The plot was predictable but was very well written in portraying the confusion of Alzheimer's. Add the murder mystery to the mix and it kept me listening.

Can't believe I wasted so much time on this book.

One of the worst I've been unlucky enough to purchase. I finished it strictly out of principal. Not worth the money or time.

Captivating, yet predictable...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Sure!

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book but, to me, it became predictable about 3/4 of the way through. When the light bulb went on, it was almost like I was waiting and waiting for the book to reveal what I already suspected....and it did. The journal reading got a bit tiresome to me....I wanted to fast forward through a lot of it, but didn't because I didn't want to miss any good details. And it was def necessary to understand the book. The narrator did a great job playing each character and made the main character come to life with a great understanding of what he was going through with the disease. I will say that the ending wasn't what I expected, but I wont say more as I dont want to give anything away.

Outstanding

There were multiple times that I had no idea where this was going to go and the ending is one I don’t want to spoil but that was a great way to wrap up the story. The performance was excellent and the tension was palpable. Listening to this book made a 13 hour car ride meltaway.

Masterful point of view; excellent mystery-thriller

I absolutely loved this phenomenal first-person narrative. Paul Cleave is a genius and Paul Ansdell is the perfect narrator for this intriguing work.

Sad, Insightful, Captivating

Paul Cleave takes you into a demented mind. The sadness of dementia yet the captivating of a crime novel is an intriguing combination. It left me understanding “Captain A” much more than I could have ever expected. I’m looking forward to reading more of his work.

Long and drawn out

The funny parts are brilliant but they are spread thin throughout a very slow moving repetitive plot. The middle picks up but loses it in the end. The reader worked well with the text but it's not a book I would recommend to others.

enjoyed it

Enjoyed it. Saw this recommended in a list of thrillers with big twists so i gave it a try. narrator was great, i could always tell which character was speaking just based on the voice. The story was interesting and sometimes you're left wondering what the hell is going on, just like the main character. (in a goid way) i think it's actually better to listen to it then read it, the narrator did an excellent job. There is a twist at the end. The story was good, the humor was great, an I'm not going to spoil it but the ending might split opinions. Still no sure how i feel about the ending but hey, that means it's interesting. 4/5 because it's not the greatest I've ever read/listened to but it's still an enjoyable thriller.
