The Murders of the Twelve
Lily Scrivens has always been the "weird kid." She didn't socialize with many girls, didn't fawn over boys in her teenage years, and would prefer to play video games than go shopping.
Which could be part of the reason she decided to become a police officer.
The city of South Baxter is one of the most well-know--but not just for it's attractions.
It's known for it's crime.
So, when Lily gets a job there, there are reasons people doubt her. She's young. She's petite. She's very oblivious to city life.
When a series of murders starts up in the town, the whole police force is in the race to stop them. Every time someone dies, it's a young woman with a Roman numeral carved into her heel.
Lily forces herself into the case, and soon enlists the help of a less-than-ideal man. They have to work together, which is a challenge in itself.
But the killer could be anyone, and "anyone" could literally be getting away with murder.
--RATED PG-13 for mild language, some dark sequences, and aftermath of drug use. I try not to go over the top, but it does have it in here.
