Crime is a community affair in EQMM’s September/October 2017 issue, and members of the EQMM community won’t want to miss “Bunker Hill Blues,” the next installment in Paul D. Marks’s Readers Award winning series set in L.A., or “Phantomwise: 1972,” a haunting new tale by master Joyce Carol Oates. On a changing NYC block, in “e-Golem,” S.J. Rozan’s rare-book dealer finds a strange solution for his failing business, and Con Lehane’s undercover cop has an unexpected run-in with a woman from his Irish Bronx youth in “Come Back Paddy Reilly.” Jack Fredrickson deals with an infamous neighborhood fixture in “Crazy Margaret,” and a criminal couple wreak havoc in Brooklyn in “How She Got Even” by Peter Hochstein, featuring P.I. Rich Hovanec. It takes a village to help some of our characters: A police officer responds to an elderly woman’s call in Richard Helms’s “Missing Person,” an unsuspecting carjacker chooses a colorful target for conveyance in Michael Wiley’s “Making It,” and mothers make binding friendships while biding their time in a hospital’s infant special-care unit in Aoife Clifford’s “A Watched Pot.” Meanwhile, an unfaithful husband is roped into helping his neighbor in Philip Lowery’s suspenseful “Fishtown Lockup” and tragedy unfolds at a civic carnival in Iris Leister’s dark Passport to Crime tale “Matti.” For murder on the traditional side, enter the beachfront hamlet of Christianna Brand’s “Bank Holiday Murder,” or pass through the gates of Amsterdam’s Begijnhof in “A Woman’s Place” by Josh Pachter and Rene Appél.
