An Attempted Assassination

An Attempted Assassination
Summary: Jack is visiting a retired lieutenant's estate, where also visiting is a Mr. M. Stratwitch. Due to the spooking of the horses nearby, signaling that something was wrong, and to Jack's quick action, Mr. Stratwitch escapes a near-murder with only a shoulder wound.
The would-be assassin escapes, leaving Jack knocked unconscious, having been caught at gun-point from behind.
Jack and Inspector Burrow, who's with the police, search for the man responsible, and Jack goes alone to a highly criminal place, to try and find the two criminals involved.
A rather twisted-from-the-expected course of events indeed leads Jack closer to the goal of apprehending them both.

I've just read your first chapter. You've got a good concept, but you need to work on grammar. It would be nice, also, to know a little bit about why Jack is visiting this wealthy man. Keep writing away!
