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. :)

It all happened so fast. The government and the military did little at the beginning, claiming it was nothing more than an aggressive flu strain. So many were infected that the sick to healthy ratio was 3/1. Then one day it was like a switch was flipped. Everyone who was sick dropped dead at the exact same time. Everywhere around the world. Numerous countries fell into anarchy from losing most of their populations, and martial law took a hold of the world. Thats when the dead came back. I was one of the healthy ones in New Orleans when all hell broke loose. This is my story.

Mark sidestepped another zombie and pulled the trigger downing another zombie before continuing to run. Then out of the corner of his eye, Mark thought he saw a blind open slightly in the window of a grey house on his right. His head jerked to the house as he saw the blind close a second later. Mark took a chance and ran with Rachel up to the front door of the grey house.

Mark pounded on the door and shouted, “Please let us in!”

No reply came and Rachel tugged on his arm, they turned to face their threat. More than sixty zombies where coming towards them and with sadness in his heart, Mark had to accept that this is where he died. Smacking the door one last time Mark’s voice trembling said “Please. At least let her in.”

Shocked Rachel turned to meet Mark’s sad gaze “No Mark I’m not leaving you.”

“Rachel there’s nowhere for us to go and the thought of at least you living makes me happy” Mark replied. Lifting his gun, he shot the closest zombie, not 10 feet away. Pulling the trigger, again and again, Mark took down zombie after zombie. Finally, the gun clicked multiple times confirming to Mark and Rachel it was empty. Zombies continued to close in on them with more on their way. Mark knew he didn’t have enough bullets for all of them.

“I’m sorry Rachel I wasn’t able to protect you,” Mark said as his head and heart sank low.

The Journal of M.A.N Volume 1 follows Mark and Rachel as they try to stay alive in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Along the way, relations will grow and some will break. The only thing that's for sure with zombies is that death will follow; for humans, the undead, or both!!!

***4-7-18 I am going on a bit of a break to make my story stronger. This introduction and the chapters that follow will not be the same. There will be slight differences. Please await my return. The only reason I'm not simply removing the story completely is so that people can still enjoy what I already have.

Ruan Linshad's life was never normal. She, with all the might she could muster up, tried to make the best of it, but alas, nothing truly made sense. How often do parents disappear without a trace? How often do you forget half of your childhood, only to remember things of little to no importance? There's even that name of which she couldn't speak of. Nothing. Made. Sense.

As if things couldn't get any stranger, Canus Tranx strolled in out of nowhere, bringing a load of disarray along with him. At least, that's what it seems like. His arrival was chaotic enough without the royal order being sent out a week later. They were searching for the "Traitor of the Crown". None of this can be a coincidence. Just what has he done to upset the royals and what will Ruan get herself into trying to find out? - A note from the author: This is my first novel so please go easy on me. I'd greatly appreciate feedback. Don't forget to like and comment so I'll know that I'm doing something right and so that I can interact with my readers. Thank you for taking a look at my story.

Hey guys, This is a story I partially wrote as a kid when I was borderline illiterate. I always had the ideas and creativity to write, but I didn't have the skills. My friends have helped me come along way but I still have a lot to learn. I love feedback even if it points out weaknesses.

also just a note, the names of the characters may seem ridiculous, but let me explain. This story is inspired by many real life events however unrealistic it may seem. the setting and what not are totally false, but many of the characters are real people and a lot of the conversations, personal struggles, and fights, actually occurred.

Its a war story that takes place shortly after WW2, North America was almost wiped out in a coordinated mass attack that no one saw coming. The attack was defeated, just barely, and USA and Canada were forced to reissue conscription, but since there were so many losses. The minimum age was reduced to the point were 13 year old kids are on the front lines. Nothing big was expected of these kids, however, this story follows a group of kids that not only proved themselves, but gave the Allied forces a fighting chance.

this story has a lot of sarcasm and humor in it, but it is in general a very serious and develops into a dark, sad story. All thoughts are welcome :)
