Stephen King "If It Bleeds" 2020
In January 2021, a small envelope addressed to Detective Ralph Anderson was delivered to Conrad, the immediate neighbors of the Andersons. The Anderson family is on long vacations in the Bahamas, thanks to the endless strike of teachers in their home county of Anderson. Conrad agreed to forward his mail before the Andersons returned to Flint City, but this envelope says in capital letters: "Do not forward until arrival." When Ralph opens the package, he finds a flash drive called "Bloody News", probably a reference to the figurative expression of the old news: "Bloody news is the most interesting." - The disk contains two elements, one of which is a folder with photos and audio recordings. “This is a kind of message or an oral diary of Holly Gibney, with which the detective opened a case that began in Oklahoma and ended in a Texas cave. This case forever changed the perception of reality by Ralph Anderson. Closing remarks Holly's audio report is taken from a recording dated December 19, 2020.
I did everything I could, Ralph, but that might not be enough. Despite all my plans, there is a chance that I won’t get out of here alive. If so, I need you to know how much your friendship means to me. If I die, and you decide to continue what I started, please be careful. You have a wife and a son.
