Review - Mystery Weekly July 2018

This monthly magazine is published in Canada – both e-book and paperback – and contains six mystery short stories and a puzzle tale in its 78 pages.

For writers, it’s a paying market –

For readers, it offers an interesting selection of crime tales, some with humour and wit, others with a darker tone. Nothing too graphic. 

While I enjoyed all the stories in this issue, I particularly liked the cover story ‘Fader’s Crates’ by Caroline Misner, a fairly long poignant tale with good description and style. Leslie Elman’s ‘No Quarters’ offered up a suspense story set in a laundromat, cleverly done. Peter DiChellis’s ‘Locked Tight’ was a locked room (though not quite) mystery laced with humour.
