A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a story featuring amnesia and said that what matters is not that a device has been used before, but what you do with it this time. This week the device is paralysis
Rachel is in a nursing home. She can only move a few facial muscles and, on a good day, twitch the fingers of one hand.
At night, some creepy man has been coming into her dark room to cheerfully tell her about his career as a serial killer and his plans to kill another of the residents. Is he a resident, a staffer, or someone else? She can't see him. But clearly he is getting pleasure from telling his plans to a person who can't tell anyone.
Can Rachel find a way to tell someone what is happening? Will anyone believe her? A very suspenseful story.
