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. :)

Short blurb for those who can’t be bothered reading:

Ar Chaos’s family hold a guy hostage at their home after he finds out about their supernatural abilities.

Meanwhile, someone is out killing people with supernatural abilities, and is targeting the Chaos family now.

Extended blurb:

Everyone in the Chaos family is gifted with a supernatural power—from the ability to create fire, heal fast, charm people, fly or become invisible; they have it all.

But their abilities soon come with a price when they become the target of a serial killer who seems hell bent on taking them out.

19-year-old Ar Chaos is the eldest child of the infamous Chaos family. Her gift is mind control. However, unlike her family, she doesn’t use her power, and has made an oath to never use it on anyone again...asides from her siblings, of course.

But that all changes when she bumps into the university’s golden boy, June, because:

1- He’s always in a good mood

2- She can’t read his thoughts...?

3- He seems to know something about the serial killing, something he shouldn’t know.

"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.
