Manners Cost Everything (three chapters posted in this portal)
Robbie is a person like you and me, except that he murders bad mannered people.
He had always gone through life trying to do the right thing, respecting his elders and watching his manners. Then one day, a chance encounter made him snap. He developed an alter ego that unbeknownst to him, wreaked revenge on anyone crossing his path that had been disrespectful, ill-mannered or just plain rude. The ones that slam doors in your faces, the ones that don’t indicate on the roads, the bullies and the type of people that hurt innocent animals and people. The pushy, nasty human beings that choose to be oblivious to the world around them.
Now, the two parts of him continue separately, the likable one living a life of success and excess and the other, darker one leaving a bloody trail of murder and aptly delivered revenge throughout London. Only the black outs that Robbie suffers are an indication that anything is wrong, when he awakes from what he thinks are violent dreams. Otherwise, he doesn’t have a clue.
Meanwhile, an up and coming Detective Lentus has his world changed forever by the first of these vicious murders, and devotes his life to hunting down and bringing the mysterious killer to justice; whilst being haunted by the ’ghost' of his murdered sister. Lentus is a simple man with linear thinking, who now only has his job and his obsession driving him; now that he has lost his last remaining family member. The paths of the characters intertwine throughout London, sometimes knowingly, and sometimes not; ending in a breath taking conclusion.
