The Gang on the Block

School had just let out, and the whole gang was looking forward to a summer of fun, adventure, and mischief. If Linda played her cards right, she could tag along with her older brother, John, and get in on the action of playing baseball in the old abandoned field down the street or playing kick the can when it got dark. After all, the more the merrier. Someone else was thinking of getting in on the action as he watched Linda's thick strawberry-blond ponytail streaming behind her when she ran to find a good hiding spot. He didn't have fun, adventure, or mischief on his mind. He had only one thing, murder.

Look for them under Leddy and Piper. The first one to come out is called sucker.
