Old friends? Colleagues? Law enforcement officers? Many of this month’s stories revolve around questions of trust and betrayal. A woman in witness protection is shaken by the transfer of her trusted handler in Joseph D’Agnese’s “Harm and Hammer.” An academic star and mentor appears to have ill-placed his trust when he turns up dead in “A Haven of Learning . . . and Death” by Julie Tollefson. Staying within the ivied walls, the student/teacher bond is strained in Dan Warthman’s story “Reputation Adjustment.” Similarly, the patient/therapist relationship takes an unexpected turn in Max Gersh’s tale “In Therapy.” In Susan Oleksiw’s “Francetta Repays Her Debt to Society,” a woman just released from prison revisits her old connections, and long-time friends and bandmates recall some ancient history in “The Frontman’s Journey” by Alannah Davis O’Dell. Finally, a British civil servant confronts a past betrayal in the very poignant story “Voids” by Linda Mannheim. While the characters in this month’s tales are well advised to keep their friends close and their enemies closer, you can trust AHMM to deliver engaging crime stories.
