    Summary

    It would be easier if they ate people’s heads off, but Eddie is good. Eddie does not want to kill people. Eddie sees something in people that Tel-Kar never allowed Venom to recognize in the first place. He sees something in them beyond tools to be used. Even the bad people, sometimes. He believes, sincerely, in second chances.

    Venom thinks Eddie must be his second chance.

    Summary

    His work interviewing serial killers causes him to meet many strange people and make even stranger friends, but how is he supposed to explain that he knows the texture and the taste in his mouth, regardless of how fanciful the presentation on the plate in front of him appears?

    Summary

    “Our past experiences have taught me that I am perhaps more prone than I would like to only seeing what I want when I examine your motivations,” Hannibal says quietly. “It is not a mistake I think I could survive again.”

    Will skates the hand he has on Hannibal’s shoulder up until he’s cupping the back of his neck, thumb smoothing through the fine ash of his hair. “Are you worried about surviving me, Hannibal?”

    Hannibal tilts his head into Will’s hand. His eyes flutter closed. “I think you already know that you have well and truly defeated me, dear Will.”

    Summary

    Two years ago, a fanatical copycat killer turned the murders of Will Graham's mind into reality, ripping deaths right from the pages of his bestselling crime novels. Two years ago, Will put ten bullets in him, adopted his grieving daughter, and set down his pen for good. Now he lives an isolated existence as far away from the spotlights as he can; his life revolves around his bookstore, his daughter, his dogs, and little else.

    Until a body turns up - another, just like Will wrote about years ago. Only this time the horror of the crime isn't constrained to his own rules; this one's missing organs. And Will knows instantly there's only one serial killer who could replicate Will's own murder so flawlessly, who would take such precise surgical trophies and nothing else.

    The Chesapeake Ripper is evidently a great fan of Will's work - and he's hungry for Will's attention.

    Summary

    “By signing the above form, you waive the right to sue the Life Foundation or any of its subsidiaries and holdings in the event of injuries sustained during the course of the experiment.” Eddie pauses for a second. “Up to and including death.”

    Drake's smile is pleasant and faintly terrifying. “A mere formality. Are you signing or shall I ask security to see you back out?”

    Eddie thinks for a moment about saying no; about ripping up this dumb form and heading out the door where - where what? Where his favourite park bench was waiting? Where he had no home, no family, no life?

    No, he was seeing this through. For his reputation, for the others who had already gone missing; for the truth.
