In the introduction to her 1929 anthology The Omnibus of Crime, Dorothy L. Sayers ponders the “possibility that the detective-story will some time come to an end, simply because the public will have learnt all the tricks.” Twenty-first century readers may be savvy indeed about the “tricks” of the genre, but Ms. Sayers underestimates the ingenuity and determination of her successors, as each new issue of AHMM demonstrates. This month alone, the power of authorial invention takes us from terrorism in American streets, in Loren D. Estleman’s WWII-era procedural “Sitting Ducks,” to the ethical challenges posed by new inventions, in Tony Richards’s “The Danua Boy”; and from the peregrinations of a knight in medieval France, in Gigi Vernon’s “Purse Strings,” to Tara Laskowski’s hauntingly open-ended “The Monitor.” So long as we have authors blessed with imagination and the desire to entertain, readers of mystery and crime stories need never fear that they have learned all the tricks.
