Thanks to my editors, Andrew McAleer and Gay Toltl Kinman, and to our publisher Down & Out Books for making my story “The Invisible Band,” a finalist for this year’s Agatha Award for Best Short Story, available to read for free for a limited time.
Be sure and order the full anthology (buy links here at the Down & Out website) for additional stories by Doug Allyn, Lori Armstrong, O’Neil De Noux, Brendan DuBois, Martin Edwards, John Floyd, Carolina Garcia-Aguilera, Kristen Lepionka, Lia Matera, and P.J. Parrish—plus John McAleer’s “The Case of the Illustrious Banker,” a recently discovered 1937 manuscript that has now been published for the first time.
Hope folks enjoy—and look forward to seeing everyone at Malice Domestic in April!
