Unlimited access to The Dark City Crime & Mystery Magazine along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium articles
The Dark City Crime & Mystery Magazine is a quarterly magazine featuring crime and mystery stories with an emphasis on character and setting. We prize memorable writing and appreciate humor in our fiction. Recent stories have featured madness, revenge, murder-for-hire, and telling tales out of school. Citizens of The Dark City walk down ordinary streets, but have extraordinary lives (and sometimes deaths).
Our journey to The Dark City this quarter begins in the desert as two sheriff's deputies pursue an old American car speeding toward and unexpected destination. Other stories in this issue include a burglar discovering another man's secrets, a man whose gambling habit is solved in an unusual manner, a hotel worker who finds a dead body, and a soon-to-be widower who finds happiness elusive. Welcome to the darker side of reality. Welcome to the Dark City.
