I recently read my first Charles Todd novel, A Duty to the Dead. I know. I am slow to the party. I found the mystery, set in WWI era England, totally charming. When I saw Charles Todd listed on the cover of the current AHMM, I couldn't wait to read the story.
I did have to wait, though. Life gets busy. When I finally sat down to read The Trophy, I found it a thoroughly satisfying mystery story.
I also read i, by Steve Hockensmith. This story is proof that AHMM is willing to take chances with fresh story-telling styles. Told mostly in a series of e-mail exchanges with a scammer, the story was entertaining, and hit close to home for all of us who have received a painfully obvious, grammatically incorrect scam e-mail.
By the way, Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine has a new and improved website. Visually appealing, easy to navigate, and with lots of insider info, the new website is worth checking out.
