Abstract
Detective Benny Cooperman is in a Toronto hospital after a blow to the head affects his memory and gives him alexia - he can write but can't read. When he learns he was found unconscious beside a dead woman, he figures he must have been close to solving a case. Benny tries to piece together the events that led to murder - and his own injuries.
