Ben never knew writing would cost him his life.

Ben Little is broke, jobless, and failing at his one true passion: writing. He can't even afford medical treatments for his son. When bestselling novelist Jack Fleischer takes an interest in him as a co-author, Ben thinks he has found his big break. But he quickly learns that working with Fleischer is no dream job. The bestseller is demanding, angry, and cruel... and he has far darker plans for Ben than just writing.

Since signing the contract with Fleischer's publisher, Ben is being followed by shadowy agents. His wife is accusing him of things he doesn't remember doing, and the contract is full of bizarre terms. Like dangerous research trips that involve binge drinking, torture, and worse. If Ben breaches the contract, he'll lose everything. But he is not about to surrender to Fleischer. Ben will do anything in his power to save his family, and his life.

In this twisting supernatural thriller, David Jacob Knight keeps you guessing. What's real? What's a nightmare? And what's the difference?
