For these homicide detectives, the case is never over until the bad guy is caught – no matter what obstacles stand in the way.

This story received an honorable mention in the 2012 Golden Donut Award contest, with the prize given out at the Writers Police Academy conference. All submitted stories must be exactly 200 words (including the title) and be based off a picture. This year the picture was of a shack and old car. You can read the story here. Note: While I really liked the idea of this story, the punctuation and lack of tags made it a bit hard to follow. I had to read the story a few times to correctly follow exactly what was happening. Good thing it’s short.
