Off Script
by Graham Hurley

Actress Enora Andressen must find a killer, and there’s no script to guide her . . .

Carrie Tollman awakes in the middle of the night with an intruder gazing down at her. He’s young. He seems crazy. He tells her he’s killed before and he’ll kill again. One word about what’s happened, and he’ll be back. Carrie is one of two carers looking after Enora Andressen’s favorite scriptwriter. But Pavel is now paralysed, as well as blind, and it falls to Enora to track down this terrifying presence at Carrie’s bedside.

Enora’s journey takes her deep into the netherworld of homelessness, neglect, and the unaddressed torments of people – young and old – failing to cope with their demons. Nothing has ever prepared her for this . . .
