About this ebook

When they found the first body, no one batted an eye. 

That was par for the course in Skid Row. But something with these deaths was off. They were made to look like ritualistic suicides, like something supernatural. But I knew better. Besides, I don't believe in magic.

My name is Rick Danvers and I'm an undercover detective with Robbery Homicide. I've been embedded in this slum for a week now, and before the night is over, I'm gonna get to the bottom of the Skid Row Suicides.

Keywords: paranormal metaphysical crime horror urban fantasy mystery thriller suspense action adventure supernatural detective fiction magical realism gritty dirty grim dark low hard boiled los angeles city skid row murder conspiracy possessed possession dead spirit homeless bum police procedural cop noir adult short story book evil curse devil

Very nice job with that twist. It took me until right before reading the word "Poison" to realize it. This could've been better written in my opinion, but I'll let that slide and give you five stars because I still enjoyed this story. I'll definitely check out others written by you when I can! :D

It's a recommendable book and it's quite fun and intriguing to read. The Lingo and characterization in the book is phenomenal, it had me with a lingering feeling that fills me with suspense and curiosity. I swear to god, you'll constantly want to turn the pages✌🏿
