PART A Detective Kress and Lori welcomed Oliver and Eden to the Red Hill Detention Centre. Eden had anticipated her meeting with Black since she woke up at the hospital. She was in a coma for four days due to excessive blood loss from her gunshot wound. Fred and Black were the first people she […]


PART A The leathery smell and heavy scent of wood pricked her nose. Birds chirped as Eden pried her eyes open with a soft moan. She became woozy as she lifted her head from the red leather ottoman. A cuff latched around her wrists, causing her to use up more strength than she liked to […]


PART A “Has he been identified?” Kress asked his team as he strode into their Unit room with Oliver. “Yes,” Dash answered. “Jeff Romano is not his real name, which is why we don’t have anything on him. We ran his fingerprint and his real name is Jeff Draven. We have him in the system.” […]

PART A Oliver returned to the office to wrap up his to-do list for the day and didn’t take a break until he heard two knocks on the door. After seven years of working with him, he could tell Jane’s knock from any other. It was soft, almost hesitant and she always tapped her knuckles […]
