Quills and Daggers 2
A Collective Novel
Quills and Daggers 2: We All Fall down – A Thriller - Episode 10
Ring around the rosy. Pocket full of posies. Ashes…ashes…WE ALL FALL DOWN.
I was giving the city something it so desperately needed. Something it hadn’t had in a long time. Something that wouldn’t allow people to prance around in the late night hours, doing whatever they wanted to, without any worry about the darkness all around them. I became a serial killer. A monster for the city to blame all its problems on. I could have simply carried a pistol and put a paper bag over my head and found couples making out in cars. Or I could have brought young boys to my home and drugged them and performed sexual acts on them before eating them. I could have dressed like a clown and buried young men beneath my house. Yet, I was no Zodiac, Dahmer, or Gacy.
I became Simple Simon who met the pie man. You know how the nursery rhyme goes. It made sense. I hated pumpkin pie yet it was the one thing that my foster family and I had in common. So I used it. As silly as it might seem, I decided to create my own sick treats out of the bodies of my victims.
Kevin is a stuttering tattoo artist struggling to make sense of a cruel world and the loneliness enveloping him. Simple Simon is a cold blooded killer stalking the streets of San Francisco. In the final book of Season 1 of The Collective, step inside two personalities, two fractured minds, and discover the demons lurking in the darkness.
This is the sequel to Quills and Daggers by my alter ego, erotic romance author Chris Genovese. It’s also book 10 in The Collective, a series of standalone novellas where the characters from the different books intertwine and are all part of the big city terrorized by Simple Simon and his trail of dead bodies. You’ll get much more out of this book if you read the entire 10-book series, but Quills and Daggers 1 and Quills and Daggers 2: We All Fall Down are companion books. You must read the first one in order to truly understand the second.
