With that settled...

Crime stories like the ones below could be tall tales or totally true. Take a look...


Flytrap


[Wattpad Editors' Picks AUGUST 2021] When men vanish around the city, a young, paraplegic detective takes it upon herself to uncover the truth and soon realizes the culprit might be a lot closer to home than she imagined.

Barbara Gordon thought her career as a promising young detective came to an end after she was left crippled in a tragic accident.

But when men start disappearing around the city, Barbara is given one more opportunity of fulfilling her dream.

Convinced her dad's new fiancee is not who she seems, Barbara begins her own investigation and discovers she might be responsible for the recent string of disappearances.

But a darker truth lies just below the surface.

If this once would-be detective wants to solve the case, then she must accept the help of some even more mysterious--and possibly dangerous--allies.
