Thrills! Mystery! Suspense!

Welcome to our Fall 2020 issue, Thrills! Mystery! Suspense! This month Mason Street celebrates our one-year anniversary! In that time we’ve been featured in Book Riot, welcomed guests such as Lois Lowry Charles Todd, Marge Piercy and many others! Today we’re so very thrilled to bring such a high caliber of talent from our special guests for this issue, with cover art from none other than sought-after artist and illustrator David Cowles, who has created a portrait of the Grande Dame of mystery herself, Agatha Christie! Do check out blockbuster bestselling author David Baldacci’s My Library Memories column. Then enjoy British Crime Classics Editor Martin Edward’s countdown of the top ten Hercule Poirot mysteries. Sample a delectable excerpt from author Guy Fraser Sampson’s not-quite-the Golden-Age novel What Would Wimsey Do? There’s true-crime aficionado Michael Benson (known from ABC’s 20/20) teasing us with an excerpt from Lord High Executioner, the story of Albert Anastasia. And put on your aprons and get ready to concoct pure evil with author Art Taylor’s wicked short story, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Here’s to mystery, intrigue and mayhem!∎
