The clues are always there, it is just a case of searching and thinking hard enough... Continuing my experimental grim and gritty approach to detective stories I've scribbled this real life mystery. Written in the style of Hunting the Ripper it is worth mentioning this story is based on true events and people (some of whom are still alive) with about 90% accuracy and as it concerns the hunt for a serial child killer and rapist obviously it is not suitable reading for some, though I have tried to deal tactfully with some of the more unpleasant subject matter. Disclaimer over. As always, thankyou for taking the time to read my stories.

It was a good story with a good plot. It felt flat though and it just seemed like there was little actual interaction. I believe this could be a great story if it just had a little more life to it. Other than that, it really felt like some true story that would happen and it made you feel like you were truly a detective!!

Although the subject matter of this story game is very grim, I think it was written very well. I really felt like I was a detective trying to solve these murders, get the best information out of the witnesses, potential suspects, and trying to comfort the witnesses and the girl that almost got murdered. I also liked how another case was solved in trying to solve this case. Furthermore, I thought the story was very realistic. As far as the characters, I thought there was good development, and I thought there was good contrast in general. One example of this is the difference between the other parents and the mother who already thought her child was dead and announced it suddenly. I also thought there was good contrast between the mostly static character of the first medical examiner who did the autopsies, and other characters such as Pin and Richard. The issues that made this a seven verses an eight were miner proof reading, a bug with a link not taking you where you should go based on the order of how you did something, and it could have used a little more branching in my opinion.
