Murder case.

Martha Shaw is the best person to have on the case.
Eight murders and counting. All by the same person.
At the same time every single day.
Martha only has a short time before the murdered kills again, and it could be her that it's after.


3. Detective P. Ross


Martha walked up the stairs and towards the end room, where detective Ross was.

" Detective?" she asked as she knocked on the door. " It's Martha Shaw, head detective, I was wondering if you could tell me about the murder yesterday?"

" Ah, Martha, please, come in," a deep, British voice called from the small room.

Martha walked in and looked around. The room was a small office, with a big brown desk, a computer, a window and a big black couch. There was a pillow and a blanket on the couch and Martha wondered if he slept in the office.

" Now, Miss. Shaw, what would you like?"

" Please, call me Martha. I was just wondering Mr. Ross, if you could tell me about the murder yesterday?"

" Well, Martha, you can call me Paul," he said, emphasising ' Martha'. " So, you'd like to know about the murder? I like to call him the 'one o'clock murderer'..."

" This isn't a joke, Paul." Marth said.

" I don't find it as one, but I'd much rather be a happy investigator, than a grumpy one, Martha," he said.

" You said him, how do you know it is a him?"

" Well, Miss. Shaw," started Paul. " Martha, I seem to think he is a male, you seemed shocked, do you think it is a female? You see, I tend to think that it is a male, because of all the crimes we have had before, only males leave notes, saying what they are up to. He just gave us a major lead in knowing what he is going to do next, but we don't know who the next victim would be, he left us a challenge."

" How do you know though?  Is there any evidence?"

" Well, there's this," Paul held up a little card.

Martha took it out of his hand and read it over and over again.

" You didn't show the inspectors and the detectives this!? Why not?" Martha shouted.

" Keep your voice down! This is the only case I have my own lead on, with this, I might actually have a chance to catch the criminal myself instead of all the others getting involved. Please, Martha, don't tell anyone."

" How am I meant to keep this a secret?! It's my job to get evidence and to find the criminal! If your hiding evidence then we will never find the murderer!" Martha shouted again.

" You can help me! We can both find him, get a raise, please!" Paul begged.

Martha read the card again, it said:
