A suspense writer comes upon several murder stories on his computer that are written in his own unique style. He doesn't remember writing them, but it is not impossible for him, as a man who suffered memory loss, to be their author.
Soon a journey takes him to northwest China along the ancient Silk Road. He is shocked to learn that the murders in the stories really happened in cities he visits. The horrific crimes were committed in the years when he lost his memory, but none of them have been solved.
Did the best-selling writer ever kill? Are those murder stories accurate records of what he did?
