What is this book about?
The literary agent, journalist, and former police officer are investigating the murder. A strange set of “detectives”, isn’t it?
One night in 1987, famous Professor Joseph Wieder was brutally murdered in his home. And this case isn’t solved.
The young journalist John Keller is trying to find a manuscript and write a whole story. Later, Roy Freeman, officer working with this case in 1987, continues to investigate the murder. He wants to find the murderer and uncover the terrible truth.
Three different men are interested in discovering the story, which has an incredible number of alternatives. Because each of the former defendants or witnesses said their own version of events. And whom they should believe? It seems like all heard can be both true and false.
Our memory isn’t a video camera that records everything that passes in front of the lens… But more like a screenwriter and director all rolled into one, who make up their own movies from snatches of reality.
