<Inspect> - An Interactive Novel

by Chase Anderson et al

Leland “Shoe” Cordwain has few skills, even less motivation, and everything he knew was thrown into chaos when his childhood best friend Kay was found guilty for a string of gruesome killings. He’s drifting through life, only finding enjoyment in trying to solve true crime cases on the Internet. When a piece of crucial evidence changes in his hands he learns he is an INSPECTor, an individual with the rare ability to alter items and force reality to align with the new truth.
