Before there were the 12 Days of Murder, NYPD Officer Frank Schultt worked out of the 6th Precinct with his friend and confidant Amanda Gleason. On the night of the annual West Village Halloween Parade, Schultt and Gleason are tasked with overseeing a handful of VIPs. What they never realized was how a seemingly cushy post for the evening would rock the city and their worlds when a group of terrorists attack the parade, leaving carnage in their wake. Will Officers Schultt and Gleason find the mastermind behind the attacks and bring them to justice before they slip silently into the night? Find out all this and more in Homicidal Halloween Parade by Jason Wrench.
