Magazine Description

In this issue

Getting trapped is a primal fear, and our modern world offers no reprieve. Daily we’re caught in traffic jams, shut up in elevators, chained to a desk, and for some, nabbed by the police. Nor are we free of psychological traps. Fiction is one way to work through your fears, and this issue of AHMM offers some thrilling stories of entrapment and escape. In our cover story by Joslyn Chase, a woman must leave home to work at her uncle’s Whitechapel pub, “The Wolf and Lamb,” during the terror wrought by Jack the Ripper. Joseph Walker describes the journey of a woman escaping an abusive marriage in “Etta at the End of the World.” Characters revisit the heady days of college in Elizabeth Zelvin’s “Reunion.” A private jet is the setting for Ken Brosky’s locked-room story “Airless Confinement.” In 1920s NYC, a shoeshine gets caught up in a scheme in “Probable Cause” by John G. Wimer. Revenge motivates in Sarah Weinman’s “Limited Liability,” and Janice Law’s widow takes justice into her own hands in “The Client.” Bob Tippee’s executive draws on his character failings in “A Bias for Action,” while Officer Grant Tripp’s brother falls under suspicion for a string of robberies in Eve Fisher’s “Brother’s Keeper.” The perpipatetic Buck and Wiley return in Parker Littlewood’s “Buck Solves the Case,” while two girls find the body of a drowned bank robber in Michael Bracken’s “Sleepy River.” We offer whodunits featuring distinctive PIs. Jeff Cohen’s Samuel Hoenig finds that being on the autism spectrum gives him an edge in “The Question of the Befuddled Judge.” Mark Thielman’s handsome PI solves the murder of a store manager in “The Case of the Cereal Killer.” Mystery writer Shanks is called to help a music producer on the eve of his death in Rob Lopresti’s “Shanks Saves the World.” Finally, we are delighted to introduce a new feature: former police detective Lee Lofland will offer in each issue insights into the working lives and daily realities of those involved in law enforcement.
