    Summary

    When a murder has been committed, there must be an investigation. When a person of interest has been found, there must be probable cause for an arrest.

    When the suspect is Baz Pitch, probable cause doesn’t matter.

    Detective Inspector Simon Salisbury has linked a series of murders to the city’s most well-known and untouchable criminal, and there’s nothing he can do about it. After his removal from the case for being too close to one of the victims, a series of taunting encounters with Baz himself turns Simon’s investigation into an obsession—one that might lead him somewhere there’s no coming back from.

    Summary

    The year is 19XX. The type of 19XX that has typewriters and fog and drinking in the office, specifically. Hero is off working on a secret case, so you have been given the role of substitute detective. Hero's detective agency isn't very popular, you spend most of your time just sitting around and chatting with Basil, your assistant. Until one day, a routine case turns out to be more serious than anyone could have imagined. With Hero nowhere to be found, it's up to you to solve it.

    This is pretty silly stuff, though not quite as silly as Feral Basil. While that could maybe be classified as a sex comedy, this is more a comedy mystery. So expect silliness, but not nonstop silliness. Also, there's some violence, but nothing too bad, and some sexual references.

    It should also be noted that there might be some weirdness if you try to play this CYOA on very small screen, like on a phone, so keep that in mind! It will still work, but the formatting might be messed up.

    Summary

    Hatchetfield, 1946

    After the Second World War has come to an end, the citizens of Hatchetfield move on in life, blissful in the presence of music and life and laughter.
    But when a major executive of a manufacturing company is found dead on the beach, murder most foul becomes the towns biggest story.
    Enter Paul Matthews, a mild-mannered reporter for the Hatchetfield Gazette who gets stuck with the story.
    In the wake of red-herrings, riots, and a trail of deaths that seems to lead to one killer, can Paul, with the help of the spunky barmaid, Emma, stop the killing?

    Basically, I got impatient and wrote a Noir Paulkins AU in the middle of writing Until it Sleeps, in spite of having a bunch of other WIP’s I need to finish

    Really hope you guys enjoy!!!

    Summary

    "No, I’ll come too,” Hanna says, “you never know with PIs.”

    “That's true. Do you remember the one in Trenton?” Spencer asks with a laugh. Hanna wrinkles her nose.

    “The greasy-looking one?” Hanna asks, “with the sauce in his beard?”

    “That one. It’s amazing he ever managed to investigate anything. Or find his own office,” Spencer says, shaking her head and scoffing.

    “But somehow, his hand managed to find your thigh,” Hanna says. She can picture that day in her mind so clearly. She can smell the stink of food, sweat, and cigars that had been overpowering in his office. She can see the lear in his eyes when he'd looked at Spencer. She can hear the satisfying yelp he’d made when she'd taken the framed picture of his wife off of his desk and jammed it into his lap.

    (Or: A noir-style AU featuring vigilante girlfriends Spencer and Hanna.)
