Driven by Revenge

A style that does make for varying chapter lengths, especially as we near the climax of the story.

A police drama that was inspired by a Christmas Morning incident in Webster NY, where a gunman set his own house afire and then waited for the police and firemen to arrive. The story is written from a dual perspective featuring a narrative of the antagonist’s actions and thoughts, along with the actions, and emotions of Senior Detective Charlotte, Charlie) Nelson. Charlie suddenly finds herself in the crosshairs of a former army sniper, bent on exacting his revenge his reserve command master sergeant and a member, like Charlie, of the Smithville Police Department. Her life-saving actions at the initial scene, coupled with her taking on the role of caring for the extraordinary teenage daughter of the fellow officer she saved earn her multiple bullseyes on her back. Two of which are from people trying to kill her, and the other placed there by a teenage cupid, who thinks that she would be the perfect match for her dad and herself. The use of chapters in this book is for the purpose of transition between the Antagonist’s point of view, and Charlie, our Protagonist telling of the story in the first person. A style that does make for varying chapter lengths, especially as we near the climax of the story. Additionally, as some of the chapters are long, I have used a graphic symbol to signify scene changes within a chapter. We found that this method allowed us to tell both sides of the story, and allow the reader to become absorbed in the emotions, feelings, and moments of intense action, suspense, humor, and terror that make up this story.
