Disgraced police detective Daniel Hawthorne, a brilliant, eccentric investigator, is assigned to the case. Hawthorne decides he needs a ghost writer to document his life; a Watson to his Holmes. He chooses Anthony Horowitz. Drawn in against his will, Horowitz soon finds himself a the center of a story he cannot control.
