Vigilante groups form, and innocent men are set upon. Baffled, police argue with each other about how to catch the suspect.

Brilliant and entertaining

This is an extremely interesting story that I have never heard of before now. It is a mixture of narration and voice acting and you really get the sense of being in this place and time while this very strange story is unfolding. I won't put any spoilers here but be prepared for a very interesting twist at the conclusion of this true story.
