THE COMMUNITY: CID CASE #2

Welcome to The Community. A place for singles. A place for like-minded people. A place for him to find his next victim. 

A couple with a XYZ secret are brutally murdered in their art gallery. Their bodies cleaned. Their limbs dismembered. Their past hidden. 

At first, what looks like a sadistic fantasy killing becomes much worse. And as more bodies turn up, killed under similar circumstances, Jake Tanner must stop the murderer before he strikes again. 

With pressure from the powers above forcing them to contain the case before it goes viral, Jake learns that the team are willing to do anything to put an end to it all. 

Jake Tanner is pushed to his mental limits as he uncovers.... The Community. And he's been waiting...

CHAPTER EXCERPT - EPISODE 1

audio sample - episode 1

Moshat stood beside the desk and leafed through the files in the ring binder, counting off the seconds until it was time to begin, when his colleague entered the room. ‘Come on, mate. Shift’s over. You coming?’ Adam said.

 

Moshat hesitated. ‘I’m just finishing up a few more things.’ The light above him flickered, making the shadow he cast over the documents he held in his hands more ominous. It was important to make it look like he was busy. ‘You go. I’ll catch you up or see you tomorrow. I don’t know how long I'll be.’

 

‘You sure?’

 

Moshat nodded, keeping his gaze fixed on the papers in front of him. ‘It’s fine. Just go home, your missus will be getting worried. She might think you’re cheating on her.’

 

Adam chuckled, his oversized belly and sagging jowls wobbling with each laugh. ‘Chance would be a fine thing.’ He turned to leave the room. ‘See you tomorrow, then. Have a good one.’

 

Moshat grunted as a way of response. Finally. He let a deep sigh of exultation. Fucking finally.

 

Now he could begin.

 

As soon as he heard the factory shutter door close, way off in the distance, he placed his pen on the table. It was exactly parallel to the three other pens, two pencils, a small rubber and a shatterproof ruler. After a quick readjustment of the ruler, he was ready to go. Everything needed to be perfectly aligned, perfectly in order, and perfectly well-hidden.

 

Moshat glanced over at the red clock hanging on the wall and then at the digital clock on his desk. 23:50. Ten minutes to go. He breathed out and relaxed, allowing the tension in his back and shoulders to ease. As he arched closer to the wall, the knots in his muscles loosened. That idiot Gardner, he thought, shaking his head. It had been a close call; he didn’t think he would shake Adam away in time, like a piece of discarded chewing gum on his shoe. It was imperative that there were no delays. Delays were costly and could lead to further mistakes — or worse, they could lead to nothing happening at all. And so far, Adam Gardner had posed the biggest threat to the operation.

 

Moshat sat down on his chair. The wave of pain deep in his back returned with a vengeance. The injury hadn't been kind to him. It had changed the course of his career, meant his dream was ruined, and nearly left him paralysed and in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. The discomfort and hurt was a constant reminder of those responsible and how they now lifted trophies in the youth team for West Ham with promising careers ahead of them. Tomorrow he would ignore the pain, give in to it, sacrifice himself so he could see the operation through to the end and have enough painkillers in his system to knock out a horse. He would not let any signs of weakness ruin the worst terror attack London had ever seen, the attack which he had worked so hard to prepare for.

Homemade bombs are easy to make.

 

All it takes is some ammonium nitrate and hydrogen peroxide. Both can be found in household items such as hair care products and fertiliser. Mix the ingredients together below ten degrees to form crystals, then combine with water, flour, and an initiator, and you’ve got yourself a device capable of killing dozens and injuring countless more. On the face of it, it’s simple. But both substances are incredibly volatile and must be handled with extreme care. It had taken Moshat and his brother months to learn the basics, but, for Moshat, homemade bombs wouldn’t do. Killing dozens wasn’t enough. For their operation, they would need professional, large-scale stuff. And they had the training to acquire it.
