Description

Two family killings, separated by four decades and thousands of miles, punctuate this month’s issue. In each case, a mother and her young children seem to have died at the hands of a previously loving husband and father. What went wrong? It’s impossible to say for sure – but you can form your own opinion by reading the stories of Xavier Dupont, and Elmer Crawford.

Appalling cases – and yet they almost pale alongside this issue’s real shocker, whose title tells you all you need to know: “Why Ruth Dismembered Her Friends.” The story opens with two mysterious trunks, dripping blood, and only gets more shocking from then on.

We’ve worked extra-hard to produce more stories for this bumper issue of Master Detective – so don’t hold back.
