A prank turns fatal, but that isn't all. There's more to what meets the eye. Reading time: 15 minutes. Now, also available on Wattpad and Pratilipi. SENSITIVE CONTENT WARNING! 1 The freezing cold whispers of the wind passed through the trees on both sides of a lonely road. The foggy silence clanged loudly on the road covered with snow. Then, a rattling noise broke this symphony of the winter. The sound came from the engine of a car. It suddenly died when the vehicle came to a screeching halt. And just like that, it went dead quiet again almost instantly. The person behind the steering wheel, a shabby, half-sleepy man, stared at the white figure on the road, squinting his eyes. His face was covered in a thick, greying beard, and his rugged clothes carried as much filth as the seat cover of his car. He couldn't see clearly for three reasons. One—it was still pretty dark.

A crazy killer is murdering young women. Surprisingly, no one can clearly remember his face. What kind of deceptive tricks is the killer playing? Reading time: 8 minutes. Now, also available on Wattpad and Pratilipi. SENSITIVE CONTENT WARNING! The detective sat idle in his chair while scrolling Instagram reels. Anxiety kept eating away at him.

He had no idea what he was watching. The scrolling gave him a false sense of progress. He felt as if he was going somewhere. Maybe the killer will turn up at the bottom of the feed.

A mysterious killer has terrified the criminals of Crime-City. Dead bodies are dropping every night. It will be the worst time to visit, and a girl does precisely that. Reading time: 29 minutes. Now, also available on Wattpad and Pratilipi. SENSITIVE CONTENT WARNING! Chapter One  Crime-City The night was quiet, and the wind tiptoed around the pier where a dozen men were busy unloading unmarked packages from a boat into a van. The name on the board was as old as the city itself, Crime-City. They called it so because no one remembered the actual name, not even the descendants of the founders. The men did their jobs well without stopping for a second even to chat. They worked in complete silence as if they didn't want to bother the sleeping city, not that they cared. It was night, and the night in Crime-City belonged to the criminals. They weren't worried about the police. Why would they be? The city had a system. What they should have been worried about was a hooded fi
