Intro to our Story :
You know, I've never been a big fan of Sherlock Holmes. My dad calls him the world’s greatest detective, but a stinky old pipe-smoker is not my idea of a hero.
My name is Will Allen. You’d never guess that I’m a detective myself, especially since I’m not one of those… well, detective-looking kinds of guys. Still, I've cracked some of the biggest, strangest cases you could ever imagine. But not one of them was stranger than how I got started doing this in the first place.
I wasn't always a detective, you see. I mean sure, sometimes my mom would say something like, "That's amazing Will! How did you know I baked cookies while you were out? I aired out the kitchen so you wouldn’t smell them!" and I would tell her, "Easy, mom. There's a trace of flour on the counter, the oven door is warm, and you hid something in the breadbox real fast when I came in."
Yeah, I’ve always been kind of a natural when it comes to solving problems.
Well, most problems, anyway. Sometimes even I needed help, which is where my story begins.
You see, I had a problem I couldn't solve. But it wasn't as simple as finding my dad's missing golf club.
I had a monster under my bed.
