Rarely is there no motive for a murder…but in True Detective’s first story…
True Detective December 2000
Rarely is there no motive for a murder…but in True Detective’s first story in this issue there appeared to be no reason for Raffi Kodikian to kill his best friend during their hike through the New Mexican desert. Kodikian claimed it was a mercy killing…but was it? We ask you to decide.
And in Matthew Spicer’s gripping tale of a murder which took place in Dublin in the 1930’s a second motive only came to light half way through the trial…so why did the Marie family try to cover up the real reason for the rift between the two brothers-in-law.
Finally, when Detective Felix De Martini had to investigate the murder of Guiseppe Marino in 1914 in New York he found himself faced with a rare problem – he had one confession too many. However, it took the testimony of a man brought back from the dead to unravel this incredible murder thriller, as you can read in ‘Cop With Two Confessions’.
January 2001 marks the 49th year that True Detective has been published in Britain so make sure you get your issues now.
