Jock steps up to tackle the most challenging situation he has ever faced and does not waver. But will he succeed in his attempt to talk a troubled youth out of committing yet another heinous crime?
Detective Dylan Mathews is highly disturbed by the poems being received by a young woman named Kate Jones. As they become increasingly sinister in nature, he and his team work around the clock to catch the writer whom police have nicknamed ‘The Riddler’. Dylan reports to Senior Sergeant Robert Gardner who is impossible to please. The personality clash between the two men only hinders the progress of the investigation.
What is behind Gardner’s hatred of Dylan? Will the police be able to catch ‘The Riddler’ before it’s too late?
Butch never used his real name anymore. Nothing was left of him that was remotely like his younger self. Any hope he’d once had was well and truly gone. The ability to give or receive love was never going to become a reality and the likelihood of developing a moral compass or a sense of right or wrong was laughable. To hell with having a conscience! Butch was on a mission. There would be blood, there would be tears and ultimately there would be death. The anticipation of his victim’s blood on his hands excited him like nothing else. No other thought made him feel that way, which was unfortunately why there was no choice but to undertake tonight’s gruesome task.
His not-so-lucky victim, whom he’d nicknamed ‘the heartbreaker’, was a regular passenger on the tram. Often she would be sitting close to him without even realising it. The heartbreaker’s pretty little face was either buried in her mobile phone like most of the commuters or she would be chatting away to the other regular passengers. Butch knew which stop she would disembark at, given he’d been following her journey to and from work for a while now. The fact that she caught the tram was a blessing because no one thought twice about seeing the same people on the daily commute. Therefore, it would not rouse her suspicion if she were to notice him. As he’d unpacked that thought a little more, a red mist came down over his eyes and he clenched his fists tightly. The realisation that she had not in fact noticed his recent presence on the tram suddenly felt like a knife through his heart.
