Strain in the neck, pulsating and bleeding eye. Jaycee Baynes awakens in the hospital with the sound of gun fire echoing in her head. She doesn't remember much about May 23rd. All she knows for certain is that she did indeed kill her ex-lover-and isn't the slightest remorseful. Now, incarcerated at an in-patient psychiatric facility, she must attempt to regain her memory of the event that shattered her world to its very core. Gripped by both psychosis and her desperation to know the truth, Jaycee faces the long dark of recovery to seemingly endless obstacles of doubt and mystery. Haunted daily by the presence of her bullet-riddled ex, Jaycee teeters on the edge of reality, knowing that, without her ex's help, she may never escape the prison that has become...The Grim. Delightfully unpredictable, The Grim is an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride that leaves you yearning until the very end.
