Third in the series of cases involving Adrian.
This is the fourth story that I wrote involving Adrian and was supposed to be the fourth in the series. However, the actual third story is as of yet still incomplete. So, this shall be the third in the series for now.
After receiving a mysterious call from an unknown caller, Adrian, a detective, is kidnapped and locked inside a mansion with eleven other people. The same caller later tells everyone remotely about their purpose in the mansion; they will each be killed one by one, a death per day unless the detective can catch him/her. For the caller, it is a game. A game of murder.
Just something I wrote because bored. Trying to imagine what the beginning of a magical world might have been like.
Story follows several thousand years after an event in which ancient Gods that guarded the land fought amongst themselves and then disappeared, leaving the world to run on its own.
The following story is completely unplanned and serves as a writing exercise for me. I have been away from writing for more than a year and would like to start again. There are old stories in limbo that I have yet to finish and here I am starting a new one. Oh well.
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. :)

Another story I wrote two years ago and published here as is without any edits. If you have any suggestions or criticisms, feel free to leave a review.
Tales from a fictional pub called "The Black Swan". Five friends and their adventures/stories in or relating to the pub.
A story I wrote quite a while back. I'm quite proud of it despite it's ... well ... weirdness.
Introduction to Adrian and group.
A woman is found dead in a shower by a housekeeper in a hotel. The housekeeper contacts her friend Peter and requests that he call his friend Adrian to help investigate the case. Adrian is a private investigator who is well respected by the police department of the city. See how he unravels the case and finds the murderer.
This a short whodunit that you can finish in one sitting. Rated PG-13 because of themes of murder.
