The Mesdames of Mayhem’s fourth collection of crime fiction has been released by Carrick Publishing. In the Key of 13 is now available on Amazon. And, for those of you in the Toronto area, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating the collection’s print launch at Sleuth of Baker Street book store at 2 p.m. October 26.
The 19 stories in the anthology range from cozy to noir, and all are on the theme of music. Many of the authors are winners of or finalists for major crime writing awards. Blair Keetch is the winner of the Mesdames’ 2019 contest for emerging crime writers. His story, “A Contrapuntal Duet,” is his first published story.
Jack Batten, the Toronto Star‘s crime fiction reviewer, gave the collection a fabulous review today. Here’s the link to it!
