Charlie McWade

Blood curdling screams emanated from all corners of the padded cell. One bed, linen sheets blindingly white, unruffled and seemingly unslept in; at least that was what one would believe if they walked into the tidy sleeping quarters of Charlie McWade at Grey Stone Asylum. The Asylum was home to only the most extreme cases of the mentally insane, and many would place their money that Charlie once known as Chuck McWade, won the award for being possibly the most dangerous human being to ever walk the halls, triumphing over the entire pack of deadly patients. He was the mental case that could silence any other with a single blood thirsty glower, one he had often times given his victims before slaughtering them mercilessly. Chuck McWade the mass serial killer, who had taken the lives of countless innocent pedestrians, young or old, black or white, man or woman, if you were breathing you were in danger of being the next one found in a mass grave along the side of a fecund Mississippi swamp ground. Some believed that the cause behind so many disappearances in the North South would never be revealed, day after day millions lived in fear that a brother, sister, mother, father, cousin, aunt, uncle, grandfather or grandmother would be the next to vanish without a trace, that is until a group of obfuscated Floridian teenagers taking a road up North made the immense mistake of misreading a map and found themselves driving down a parochial road in the mid of Mississippi swamp ground. None were prepared for what they would see, as their car slugged through the dense muck beneath the tires then pop, suddenly and unexpectedly they were presented with a flat tire. But what cause this flat tire you ask? Well, the sharp edge of a human rib of course, sticking through a particularly deep and thick patch of mud. By the time the tow truck arrived the teens had dug a 3 foot deep hole and the gruesome site of three or four human skeletons scarred each of their memories to this day. Later many more mass graves would be found with an estimated body count of 469 located, all murdered in the exact same way, impaled by a sharp blade through the neck, not far enough to kill the person but just enough for them to feel excruciating pain, then followed by the dismembering of the limbs and finally the burning of the corps's. Charlie McWade stood trial for his gruesome deeds, it took the jury only 6 minutes 48 seconds to find him guilty of all charges. McWade was deemed by a bona fide judge mentally insane, most people became enraged by this jurisdiction believing he should have been thrown into the electric chair and done away with. To this day Charlie McWade lies silently in his cell at Grey Stone Asylum, bed seemingly untouched and food never eaten, all the time wondering what extenuating circumstances had led to the adventitious revealing of his unlawful acts.

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

evanhoverly: I absolutely loved this book and the characters in it. The story would often introduce unexpected events keeping it interesting.The book could use a good proofreading before it gets published, but otherwise a good read!

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

Brandy: What a great take on the idea of finding your dream man. The story was very emotional with strong characters. I would recommend this story to any who wants to read a good love story. And yes, Italian food does make everything better.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page.

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

borkarprasad: Story was overall a good experience. I liked that the truth unraveled slowly and kept me in edge every time I changed the chapter. I would love to read more volumes to this legacy and be glad to read it from a published book. Great work!!!!!!!!!
