Shady Hades

Location: The Pavement, outside a particularly shady building in a really shady part of Shady Town. You get the idea…


“Hey Sarge!”

“Afternoon, P.C. Copper.”

“It’s Cooper, Sarge. You heard about that anonymous letter that Crime Lord ‘Shady’ Hades sent to Headquarters?”

“Oh yes. But it’s not anonymous if he puts his name on it, Lad.”

“But he didn’t put his address on it did he?”

“No, Son he was taunting us. Saying we’d never find the base of his Evil Operations.”

“Will we Sarge?’

“Dunno, Boy. We sent an undercover Officer, Detective Hermes, in. But Hades says he got the cop plastered and hung him out to dry.”

“Sounds Scary!”

“Chin up Kid, and keep them eyes open!”
