The elusive murderer’s total body count has reached seventy-eight. The population of Black Lake is fleeing the town en masse. The investigation is at an impasse.

April 11, 2019

The town has been cordoned off by troops. A state of emergency has been declared in Black Lake. People are being evacuated and placed in special quarantine centers. The murders continue. . . .

The Black Lake Medical Center morgue. It’s cold. Only the hum of the refrigeration unit disturbs the quiet. . . . Suddenly the light goes on and off a few times. A spark bursts from behind the electric power panel, there’s a loud crack, and the hum of the refrigerator gradually dies out. . . . Cold and dark. And pain, a dull, aching pain all over. What’s wrong with me? Where am I--and who am I? Gradually I’m starting to feel my arms and I touch the space around me. There’s something smooth and cold everywhere. It’s like I’m lying in a sack. All the way at the top, right in front of my nose, my stiff fingers feel a zipper. I catch it with my nail and unzip the sack. . . . My eyes are stabbed by an unbearably bright light! When my vision has adjusted a little, I look around. There are tables with black plastic sacks everywhere. I myself am lying in a similar unzipped sack on a table. Directly opposite me water is dripping from a plastic grating in the wall.

I try to stand up and I stagger so badly I can barely keep my feet by grabbing onto the edge of the table. What on earth has happened to me? Who am I? I don’t remember a thing. . . .
