Eric McEvoy is an Irish homicide detective with dark secrets and a horrible past. A call from his partner forces him into reliving an event from his childhood. An event that shaped him into the law-bringing man he is today. A serial killer who gives himself the name "Crimson Killer" is leaving a trail of bodies for Eric along with pieces of a puzzle. Taunting messages, strange trophies, and his memories of his long dead parents, are his only clues for stopping this monster. Is Eric up to the task? Or will living out his nightmare take its toll?

Not a whole lot occurs, but I wanted to take time to set the stage. I want to make this really good and special because I have recently graduated with a degree in Forensics and I am returning for one in Criminal Justice. My dreams are to work as a homicide investigator and I love writing so I decided to combine the both. I hope you all will enjoy the coming chapters and grow to love my detective, Eric, as I have just by writing a few chapters!

I ended this chapter a little short but because I wanted the next part to really be highlighted in it's own chapter. So if it seems a little odd where it ended, rest assured the next chapter is full of an in depth criminal case file. (: Read Chapter

Just an FYI I have another story called "Liberty High". It's still in progress but I have the ending already in mind. The reason I'm pointing this out is because this chapter contains characters
from the Liberty High series about twenty years later. So if you happen to read both I suggest either not reading this chapter or read but you have been warned. If you don't read Liberty High then
disregard (:


Also there's a section that's blacked out, it becomes visible if you highlight the words, but it's supposed to be blacked out for a reason. Richard McEvoy blacked it out for a reason and a good
detective would have to figure it out as the story progresses! (:
