A pair of police officers doesn't believe the reports about a gruesome creature killing people and stacking the bodies in a bad part of town. The supposed witnesses, mostly prostitutes, aren't reliable enough, or so they say. Maybe a visit to where the dead ones go will change the officers' minds.

"I Know Where the Dead Ones Go" is Lovecraft meets "NYPD Blue," and touches on class and whether truth matters.

Cross between Courtney Love and a ditch is pretty brutal. It's a wonder she's still standing.
It's really good though, I can't wait to find out what the accident was that changed Marty and made Juan use crutches

I assume the answer is yes, but I'm guessing this story draws on your crime reporter work. I've always marveled at how similar police work is to reporting... how it's all about asking questions, keeping good notes, and developing a skill for what to ask when.

Very realistic, almost as if you can feel the heat and grime of the city.  Gritty dialogue and terse narrative... And the the horror creeps it.   Nice.

Nicely written pros. Great ebb and flow in 1st person, present tense. Not an easy thing to do. :0)
