The Bubble Gum Thief, by Jeff Miller
"THIS IS MY FIRST CRIME. MY NEXT WILL BE BIGGER."
It is barely a crime--just the theft of a single pack of gum. But each crime that follows is bigger, and each accompanying note promises the next one will be even worse.
When Special Agent Dagny Gray is asked to investigate the gum thief's fifth crime, a bank robbery, it seems like an amusing case. But there is nothing funny about the double murder that follows. Although the gum thief started with the smallest crime possible, he is building to the biggest crime imaginable.
Bent on justice, hobbled by the bureau, and burdened by personal demons, Dagny Gray races to untangle the meaning behind the gum thief's madness. But can she catch him before he reaches the cataclysmic finale of his escalating spree?
