Detective Steven Quaid's first case as a rookie.
Watch for its release in 2017.
It takes a true artist to pursue his victims in the art of seduction, and Stowy Jenkins is no exception, especially with blood as his medium.
With trembling fingers, Stone tears open a package of duct tape, caressing the dull, gray roll before placing it onto the clean, white towels. A leather sports bag lies open. “Just a few more necessary items,” he mutters as he steps over to a rack on the wall.
After selecting three razor sharp knives, he unlocks the closet door. He gathers three syringes, and a vial of anesthetic, carefully wrapping them in a soft cloth. He places each one into the inside pocket of the bag.
A coil of twisted rope is snatched from the floor. Stone carefully measures and cuts the cord exactly fifteen inches. One by one he places each item into the bag. “Excellent…now for the final piece.”
Housed in a leather case, he lovingly places his new Nikon camera on top of the other items. “Now we are ready—so ready.”
