Chapter 1: Surprise

I rode silently in the car, watching East Peoria go by. It would be the last time I would see the city for two years. I missed it already. "It won't be that bad, honey," Mom said.

For a while, I just lay there, going over … Continue reading Chapter 30: Hooking Up With a Dead Guy

Chapter 29: No Grave to Mark

A few days passed. The bodies of the thrill kill girls provided DNA and fingerprint matches to the evidence from the murders, and the photos didn't do much to exonerate them. The APD broke down and set up a tip line so anyone could call and give information on my killings. I'd say that Dodger, … Continue reading Chapter 29: No Grave to Mark
