The Laughing Gas Murderer

Write a detective story featuring a serial killer clown who uses laughing gas as his weapon.

The detective on the case must grapple with their childhood fear of clowns while tracking this unusual perpetrator. Herein, consider the fear-inducing contrast between clowns – typically a symbol of joy and merriment – and the grim atrocities the killer commits. Themes may include confronting personal fears, the clash between humour and horror, and psychological trauma.
