There is a killer on the loose. Everyone is on the lookout and the prime minister has called in the very best. Skulduggery Pleasant, Valkyrie Cain, Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, The Doctor and Amy Pond are all assigned to the case. They search the country for the criminal and find that the killer is actually a lot closer to home...
Amy looked up, startled, as the doctor started laughing.
"What's wrong?" she asked nervously. She spoke with a Scottish accent and her long red hair was tied up in a pony tail.
The doctor currently had wavy brown hair and high cheek bones.
"This is fun," the doctor said and Amy frowned disapprovingly.
She wouldn't tell anyone; especially her fiancé Rory, but she fancied the doctor a bit.
The doctor set off at a run and she hurried after him as the night drew closer.
Sherlock Holmes ran down the alley way and he stopped and brushed his curly black hair away from his eyes impatiently.
"I'm really going to have to get this cut."
John Watson hurried after him, he walked with a slight limp but he was smirking slightly.
"If you can forget about your hair for just a moment Sherlock, I think we were chasing someone?"
Sherlock straightened up, "So we were. Hurry up John."
They hurtled round the corner and John tripped over a discarded bin bag and went sprawling onto the cold pavement.
"Come on John," Sherlock called over his shoulder.
Valkyrie Cain took a deep breath and paused for a moment, she had a stitch.
"Why have you stopped?" Skulduggery Pleasant called from in front. The skeleton was clutching a gleaming revolver in one gloved hand and his hat was pulled low over his eyes.
"I can't breathe," she said breathlessly.
"Go away. Why do you always make me run?"
Skulduggery tilted his head to one side; "You're grumpy. What's wrong?"
She glared at him, "Nothing's wrong. I just don't see why we can't take the Bentley."
Skulduggery spoke to her as if she was very stupid; "The Bentley's too big to fit down this alley way Valkyrie."
She stood up straighter, "Yes Skulduggery, I know. You see, there is something incredibly amazing that's called a road."
Skulduggery laughed lightly and said, "Are we running then?"
Valkyrie took his outstretched hand.
"Yes we're running."
