The desk had been unused for a decade. Someone had pushed it to the far end of the shed and dumped an unwanted pot plant on it. The plant thrived on the water dripping from the roof and hid the untold secrets hidden in the drawers. The new owner had big plans for the land, wishing to return the former estate to its glory. The unearthing of a serial killer’s diary and the discovery of the graveyard in her new back garden shattered her dream. Instead, the monstrosity became known for unearthed murder victims and the closing of cold cases.
What do you think happened to the serial killer?
