Thriller

During a nice and warm day of May, sudden attacks happen all around Europe under the name Anonymous.

Based on the quote "Ideas cannot be destroyed even if idealists are,"Anonymous threatens Europe, saying that they will transform the continent into a replica of Botticelli's Mappa del Inferno.

With numerous people dying for a cause they may not even be aware of, with politicians blaming each other and a group of people who cause chaos for a so called righteous belief, a group of people are chosen to combat Anonymous.

A detective with angry management issues, an Art teacher who's relying on drugs to relax his brain and a Psychologist who might be the reason behind Anonymous; these three are the only ones who have a chance at figuring the situation out and stopping Anonymous from causing more damage in Europe.

How do you solve a case where the death occurred twenty storey high inside a locked room where the only ways of escape are a window that leads to a fall straight down to the ground with no ledges or fire-escapes, and a door that was locked from the inside?

How do you do it when you don't even know howthe victim was killed?

1st in the series of cases solved by Adrian.

This is my very first detective story that I wrote in 2012. I had published this earlier here at Penana but had removed it. So, here it is again.

The story is 6 chapters long and already completed. I'll upload a chapter a day for the next 5 days. Hope you readers like it. :)

Crime
Thriller

Sabrina Chase is a good ol' genius detective with stoic personality. Melissa Waters is her trusty sidekick who has the annoying habit of talking a lot. And this is almost cliche, boring detective story with almost cliche characters, consisting of gruesome murders, sick psychopaths, and possibly an actual plot.

Did I forget to mention that our lovely protagonist went missing four years ago and doesn't remember a thing about the entire time period? Well, there's that mystery to uncover. Apparently, it's PTSD. From what, you ask? I guess, you'll have to read to find out.

I realized that I wanted to kill people gruesomely in different ways, so this was born. Or rather, I pulled it out from the dusty, old, cobweb-filled attic. It's a really old idea that for some reason I couldn't write back then.

Also, I'm not really sure about the title of this story. I may change it later.

"This wasn't suppose to happen." He whispers to me

"But it did." I say as I began kissing him again.

Hi, I'm Violet Myers. I'm a detective and so is my partner Dustin Wright. We've been best friends since 1st grade. He's been so supportive of me and has always been there for me, even when I lost my Dad. Dustin and I got a big opportunity to go undercover in one of the biggest cartels in New York. I live in New York by the way. The name of the cartel is Malum Contauit. It's Latin for Evil Crew. If you ask me I think it's kind of lame but there is literally nothing I can do about it. A little about myself? Well, I'm blonde with brown eyes. I have one younger sister who's named Annie. She's 2 years younger then me and I love her to death. I'd do anything for her! I lost my Dad when I was 9. Annie would've been 7. It was hard for me at first but I learned to accept it. We didn't have much money but my mom did everything she could to make sure we were happy and healthy. I am currently 25 and extremely single. I prefer to focus on my job but, if a guy just happened to walk up to me I wouldn't push him away instantly. And before you get any ideas, No, I'm not interested in Dustin. He's been my best friend for 19 years. I don't want anything to change that.

Everybody is being hounded by the murderer. Not a single trace that they can find is incriminating enough to find a suspect, and nobody can think of a solution. Death next to death, there is no such thing as inexorability.

Lucky them that they have a great mind with an even greater theory.

But it's just a theory.

…Isn't it?
