The cover for the Mesdames of Mayhem’s fifth anthology, In the Spirit of 13, is ready for viewing. Designed by the talented Sara Carrick in shades of the Mesdames’ favourite color, purple, it’s a stunner as you can see from the image below
The collection features 22 crime stories, ranging from comedy to noir, edited by Ed Piwowarczyk. Most of the stories have a touch of the supernatural, and a few authors chose to interpret “spirit” as alcohol. I’m proud to have my tale, “The Fur Coat Conundrum,” sparked by my real-life adventures as a newspaper reporter, in the mix.

In the Spirit of 13 will be released by Carrick Publishing in October, and be available for purchase at Sleuth of Baker Street and all the popular online bookstores.
