A private detective gets a call from the police, detctive stewart wilson a 30 year old who graduated from cambridge. The call was about a a various amount of vamperic like attcks on people in the last two weeks. The news were going crazy as london was being over throwm in conspiracy anf theories, like the jack ripper cases, prostitutes and whore were the main victims but there were attacks on a doctor.
Stewart puts on his jacket, a secret call from the police they are desperate, the public want answers and the police can’t explain these vampieric attacks even though there are camera everywhere. Stewart wasn’t alone in his work, he had a partner name detective roger gale, he won the lottery a 20 million win and left detective work last year. Roger had been partying and enjoying the good life while stewart had been left to carry on the good work.
Roger was never really a good friend, but time from time stewarts would always be there to inform him of mystery cases and is he wanted to join in. He knocks on rogers big house and the door open and windows smashed and all the furniture knocked over, roger hads been parting again, stewart goes up to his bedroom finding in a dark room full of red wine and a hangover from hell.
‘oh come on roger can’t be living like this all your life’ detective stewart shouting
‘well im a millionaire of course I can. wants some redwine’ roger replies
‘I don’t drink alcohol, theres a case if you want to join me, lots of vamperic like murders in the last two weeks’ detective stewart proposes
‘oh, thats an interesting case to those find my cats cases’ roger sarcastically speaking
Detective stewart leaves roger how he is, he will always be an arrogant millionaire and notices roger had something like a white collar around his neck to support him with his injuries around the neck, dr miller is the one who treated roger when the incident happened, which roger implies the party he had 2 weeks ago a man nearly strangled him to death infront of everybody when he was bulliying this stranger at his party because he was a little guy who came and showing off his money to him.
‘should be careful, karma always comes round’ detective stewart tells him
‘yeah but i’m still a millionaire’ roger showing off again
Detective stewart goes out of roger’s big house, which has been really messed up with the non stop partying and didn’t even want the curtains open and drinking lots of redwine, redwine was all over his house and roger always saying ‘rich people drink redwine’ and detective stewart driving to the coronors to look at the dead bodies.
about ten dead bodies one after the other and more hidden away, detective stewart taking a closer look at each body and all had one thing similar, the bite mark at the neck, he sits down and trying to think the motives of the killer, a vampire freak with the gothic in his mind. It had similaritires with jack the ripper with most of the rooms filled with prostitutes and whores.
He goes to the forensic lab where they are experimenting with the DNA where the killer would have touched and grabbed, but no DNA at all, which confused Detective stewart even more, no camera has caught him and now no DNA. This killer is very slick and very good, detective was thinking, he might be an upper class citizen, someone who has control over most things killing the little people.
He goes home after a long day of just hitting brick walls after brick walls, he sits at home and looking at vampires and history of vampires and the mythology around them, light hrts them and coffins and it seemded so idiotic. 21st century and going reading vampire books and looking at documentaries after documentaries on vampires and the years they have been round and the any cases of people seeing real life vampires.
Detective stewart walking after the funeral of the victims and as he is walking he sees a little man staring at him and smiling.
