Magazine Description

In this issue

Diverse is the word for EQMM’s May/June 2017 issue, whose stories run the thematic and atmosphere gamut of the crime and mystery field. In historicals by Miriam Grace Monfredo and Marilyn Todd—masters of that subgenre—we visit nineteenth-century New York state (see “Child of the Cold Moon”) and the Old West (see “China Mary”), where wrongs await righting. Speaking of wrongs: Old misdeeds are reexamined with forensic and analytic slants in M.C. Lee’s tricky “Angel Face” from the Department of First Stories and in Robert L. Fish Award winning author Zoë Z. Dean’s gritty “Charcoal and Cherry.” In these pages you’ll find crimes committed by professionals—as in Robert S. Levinson’s mob tale “Rosalie Marx Is Missing”—and by amateurs, as in Martin Edwards’s “Lucky Liam.” An interesting relationship unfolds via e-mail in Marjorie Eccles’ “Find and Replace,” and another finds its haunting conclusion in Jonathan Moore’s “Your Name Will Be Written in Lights,” set in Hawaii. Police investigators of very different kinds explore crimes in Barcelona (the Passport to Crime Department’s “District V” by Teresa Solana) and the Jersey Shore (“Night Class” by David Dean). Also investigating, as usual by happenstance, is mystery writer-sleuth Antonia Darcy, in R.T. Raichev’s “The Strangler at the Harrogate Hydro.” Stunning short-shorts like Rob Brunet’s “The Last Thing You Smell” and Michele Ruby’s “Alphabetical Order” will leave you reeling, while a pair of Australian political fixers will transfix you with their efforts to quell murderous news in “Summer of the Seventeen Poll” by Aoife Clifford. There’s a hint of the uncanny in Terence Faherty’s Star Republic mystery “Infinite Uticas” as well as in John Lantigua’s “In the Time of the Voodoo,” featuring P.I. Willie Cuesta. And for those who like their mysteries dark and dangerous, there’s Doug Allyn’s Black Mask entry, “The Belgian.” The issue also contains the winners of the 2016 Readers Award—don’t miss it!
