Megan Hanna is an ordinary homemaker waiting for her husband, John, to leave his mistress and come home. All alone in a thunderstorm, she delivers her stillborn daughter. The next day, her pregnant friend, Felicity, is brutally murdered in her cellar. After removing the baby from Felicity’s womb, she names her Melissa. She buries her stillborn baby in the backyard and Felicity in Overlook Cemetery.

Megan places a drug dealer at the top of the list of murder suspects because Felicity had become an informant for the police. She also suspects John, whom Felicity claimed raped and impregnated her, besides his mistress, Shelby, who is known as the black widow. Though, the murderer could easily be Scott, Felicity’s lover, or Leah, Scott’s scorned wife.

Whoever killed Felicity knew the layout of the house and knew Megan would save the baby. The murderer sends Megan an anonymous letter to taunt her and later returns to the cellar to murder her and Melissa.

“The Streets of Fear” is a book that reflects the lives of those who live in the inner-city. The storyline of the book shows how the youth of today live and comprehend the inner-city environment. Unfortunately, many of today’s youth fall victim to homicide or incarceration; and as a result continue a devastating chain reaction that revolves around death and respect, among other plagues. “The Streets of Fear” was written to educate the ignorant, and mend those who are in need of an appeal to the inner-city (youth) violence. The story of “The Streets of Fear” is based on what the youth of today’s society have represented and continue to live by as the younger generation of youth see and replicate this form of action as a form of expression; not knowing the consequences to their actions! As upper and middle class society continues to form and grow, many of the inner-city (black) youth continue to be “passed aside” and begin to make choices that lead to detrimental consequences.

“The Streets of Fear” was written to help create a chain reaction to help find a solution to assist in reconciling those who continue this path of destruction within society’s walls. This book was also produced to show of the inner-city’s understanding and relation of such issues of violence and the affects of those actions. Overall, “The Streets of Fear” is to be used as a useful ‘vehicle’ to assist in establishing the need to evaluate the issue of violence in our communities and the reasoning behind its deadly and destructive format.

Bernie Stephens was resting on the bulkhead when he caught sight of an unusual object floating in a small stream of a nearby marsh. To his surprise and with a jolt, he found a body floating face down in the water.

The victim had stopped breathing but his demise was not from drowning. During the autopsy the doctor recovered a substance that she was unable to identify. She sent a sample of the substance to the Center for Disease Control.

The most popular theory was that the victim had been poisoned and that the son did it. After much wrangling the self-appointed head of the grand jury said, “I don’t care if he’s guilty or not, let’s indict him on first degree murder charges and let the full jury sort it out.”
