Top Suspense Round Robin Short Story + Contest

The original Top Suspense Group members: Max Allan Collins, Vicki Hendricks, Ed Gorman, Bill Crider, Harry Shannon and myself wrote a short crime story round robin style, and starting Dec 6th I'll start posting the story here.

The rules: no planning, no coordination, no safety nets. Each day one of us wrote up to 250 words of a short story and passed it onto the next writer, with each writer eventually working on two segments. The only leeway was the last writer got to go past the 250 word limit to try to finish up the story, and the only editing done was for consistency errors.

So starting December 6th I'll be posting a story segment each day with the author's name removed. After 12 days the story will be finished (one way or the other). At that point we'll be offering free books to the first 5 people who can match each segment to the author who wrote it!
