Love and passion are often the heart of crime stories. Herein are thirteen stories of love, loss, and questionable choices for those passionate about short stories. A young banker’s life is upended when he is jailed for embezzlement, but he gets out in time to wreak havoc as “The Wedding Crasher” in a new tale by Doug Allyn. A thief tries crashing the funeral of his beloved ex-wife in Robert Mangeot’s “Star of Zoe.” And O’Neil De Noux’s New Orleans P.I. Lucien Caye takes on the case of a hapless ex-con in “The Peeschwet.” Amanda Witt’s tale of a young mother’s desperation to escape an abusive relationship is tense in “Up in the Air.” Franz Margitza’s “Eulalia” is a nod to Edgar Allan Poe, with its dark themes around love. Eric Rutter’s “Mrs. Carter” recounts a wife’s heartbreak when Pinkerton detectives arrest her husband. In “Louisa and the Tunnel” by Marianne Wilski Strong, a Cape May resident’s love of Louisa May Alcott stories helps her understand why a neighbor guards her property. A woman working late at a courthouse hears the painful wail of a departed spirit (she thinks) in Cheryl Skupa’s “Ghost in the Nemaha County Courthouse.” Radio producer Margo Banning is again pressed into spy-catching service in Terence Faherty’s WWII-era “Margo and the Red Carnation.” In William Burton McCormick’s “Murder in the Second Act,” two sisters solve a crime set around a traveling theater troupe. Kevin Egan’s savvy courthouse security officer, Foxx, aids a fellow worker in “The Courthouse Paperboy.” And Mat Coward returns with a tale that begins with a menacing note in “What Invisible Means.” Finally, the buck stops with Mark Milstein’s fast-food restaurant manager when an electrical outage cascades into a series of events in “A Curious Transaction.” Joining us this issue is Laurel Flores Fantauzzo as our new book reviewer. Once again, we’re pleased to present a bouquet of thirteen tales featuring characters we think you’ll fall in love with.
