Master Detective June 2008
One of Master Detective’s key strengths is the willingness of our readers to get involved in shaping the content of the magazine. Case in point: this issue’s MD Forum. Since we printed Geraldine Tough’s initial query in Viewpoint some issues ago, we’ve had a string of helpful replies from knowledgeable readers helping us locate an accurate account of the bizarre case of the Maye family. This issue we present the full story, along with a chance to win a copy of the book from which it is drawn.
Another reason why readers get in touch with us is when they have difficulty finding MD in their local newsagents. We’ll always do our best to find details of your nearest stockist for you – but we also recommend taking a subscription direct from us. You’re guaranteed never to miss an issue and it actually costs less to have it delivered to your door than to buy in the shops.
And now there’s a third way – an exciting new way to receive your issues online and benefit from a searchable archive too. And meanwhile…
