And then there's that Rayzor Sharpe. I put the clueless little punk away for life, but then he breaks out. Now he's on th eloose and hungry for revenge, and I'm Numero Uno on his menu. I don't like to brag, but I haven't seen a crime that I couldn't solve. How about you? Let's see if you can crack these cases from my files. I've enven provided some of the crime-scene sketches to help you out. But watch your back! You never know when Rayzor Sharpe will turn up next-like maybe the next time you turn the page."
