The Red Lipstick 



Martha Trump a special investigating agent of crime branch was looking at her case files with pride. 

Whether it was an enigmatic robbery or a gruesome murder nothing remained unsolved in her career spanning ten years.

'It feels good to have 100% record in crime solving, err... actually 99%,' she said dejectedly seeing the last page which has details of red lipstick serial killer.

'She has killed twenty five men without any evidence and clue, brilliant,' she smiled cunningly. 

'But these men irritate too much,' she applied red lipstick to lure her twenty sixth prey.

Red lipstick as lure, interesting! It may cause a lot of heart-ache!
