"The man in the emergency room was not your typical head case. He ran out onto a highway and got hit by a truck. The doctors call him John Doe because he can't remember anything. His first visitor is a man who claims to be his brother, but once the two men are alone, all hell breaks loose.
'You can stop the amnesia routine,' the visitor growls as he pulls a gun. 'i know who you are and I know what you've done!' A shot is fired and the two men struggle -- but John manages to escape.
But in Jay Bonansinga's 'Head Case', freedom isn't the same as safety. John's days are a hideous waking nightmare. And his nights are filled with flashes of his past -- flashes filled with mutilated bodies and blood-splashed rooms. Suddenly, John is learning more about what he is than who he is. Looking foir help, he finds an ally in the wounded beauty Jessie Bales, a tough-as-nails private investigator who is willing to help John find out who he really is and what's really going on."
