Stalking Evil Story Outline

Tag Line

A sadistic killer.  A mysterious apartment complex. A detective hell bent on catching his man, and one small boy with special powers holds the key to it all.


Jackson Massachusetts

Jackson is a coastal town in Massachusetts.  It was founded by Sir William Jackson in 1629.  Jackson is a residential community with a vibrant tourism industry, the town is famous for its clams. 

It is also known for it's eclectic restaurants downtown on Ipswich and Main streets.  One of the main tourist draws in the summer is Crystal Beach, a barrier beach near the Jackson Manor.  The present day population is about 13,000 residence.  It gets a bit higher in the summer months.  The other body of water worth noting is the East Notch River The river runs through Jackson and is another great summer tourist draw.  Locals and tourists alike fish from the river as well as canoe and kayak up and down it's banks.  Back in the 1700 and 1800's, The Notch, as the locals call it, served as a goods lifeline all the way up to New Hampshire. 

Jackson has a very nice mix of people.  Echo Woods is on the western side of Jackson and is the upper class section.  Rocky point is located at the eastern most point of Jackson and is down by the water.  The houses there are mostly summer cottages, but many still live there year round.    The south side of Jackson, or Southie, as the natives call it, is where our adult main character lives.  On the very northern tip of Jackson lies the  The Green's apartment complex.  This is the housing section of Jackson.  Our main young character grows up here.  The Green's is a fairly new development that was put in 5 years ago.  The main building has been there from the start.  200 years ago, it was a jail for the mentally ill, named Pine Hills Prison. Many evil things happened there.  They demolished most of the jail when the apartments went up, but the brick administration building still stands today.
