Product description...

The Paris Draft—The Road Back From Dementia

World famous thriller author Jack Forrester is estranged from his family and struggling with writer’s block in his Connecticut fishing cabin. When his agent reminds him that his draft is due in a month, Jack lies that he just needs a few “location” updates in Paris to polish it. His agent arranges for Jack and a new editor, twenty-something Eileen Ross, to stay in a luxurious apartment in Paris. Eileen soon discovers that Jack hasn’t written one word and both of their careers are about to crash. Eileen suggests several writing strategies, all which defeat Jack. Fearing for his safety and sanity, she contacts Dr. Greg Patel, a former lover who is a research physician in Paris. Together, they renew their relationship while discovering that Jack has a reversible form of dementia. Together, Jack, Eileen, and Greg face life-altering crossroads.
