The spring issue of Mystery, Crime, and Mayhem – The Hunt is all about hunting someone or something, or being hunted.
I’m honored that award-winning author and editor Barb Goffman showcases my short mystery “In Plain Sight” in Black Cat Weekly #73. And I’m delighted that this issue also includes fiction from Ray Bradbury, Arthur Conan Doyle, and other terrific writers.
In her online promotion, Barb wrote that in this issue (#73), “I take you to sunny Florida in Diana Deverell’s ‘In Plain Sight.” Fleeing the cops, a wily Ponzi-schemer disguised in a black hat and chin whiskers is hiding among the plain folk wintering in a Sarasota suburb nicknamed ‘the Amish Las Vegas.’
“Trying to smoke out the fugitive, FBI Special Agent Dawna Shepherd tangles again with persistent and hunky bounty hunter Tommy O’Brien. She finds herself suiting up with the Florida Suncoast State University women’s basketball coach and players to get her man. But which man?
“This fun story originally appeared in 2013 in Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine.”
The latest issue of Mystery, Crime, and Mayhem brings you ten new short mysteries dealing with cold cases.
It may be the one case that never closed, that’s always haunted the storytellers.
Or one that someone dumped in their lap, because new evidence has brought it back to life.
The case remains cold. The clues growing moldy, or nonexistent.
But our heroes still move forward, trying to find the answer.
Those who are gone deserve no less.
“Love Child” is my contribution to this issue. The story features a ninety-year-old widow with a mystery long buried in her past and DNA test results that may hold the solution. You’ll enjoy this story!
