The glittering city of Roaring Heights holds its breath as dusk settles in with shades of orange and purple. Only the brightest of stars can guide those who risk taking the short cut through a dark alley while the streetlights offer little comfort on back way roads. Police vehicles cruise the streets. Store clerks file out in twos at closing time. Doors and windows are locked, double checked, and bats lean against the bedside table. Everyone is on edge.
Yet, despite the best efforts of the local law enforcement, another victim will be found the next morning. Much to the continuing disappointment and irritation of the RHPD, the crime scene will be clean of fibers, fingerprints, and hairs. It’s a serial case that shakes the entire foundation of the city, threatening to cause wide spread panic, self destruction, and the abandonment of morals. The citizens emphasize that they won’t be the next victim in acts of fear and aggression. They’ll take the law into their own hands.
However, hope comes in many forms and every wish and prayer made by the people has a chance to change the fate of Roaring Heights.
Be it for better or worse.
