Suspect Zero by Benjamin Percy
Suspect Zero by Benjamin Percy in the latest issue of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine (May/June) is a compelling suspense story featuring a railroad train, a serial killer, and a woman alone in a house. Since this is a story about discovery, there's not much more I can say about it without ruining it. But this is a well-crafted story that kept me turning pages wanting to see what would happen next, and it's also a story that demonstrates how versatile Ellery Queen is as a mystery magazine- -this May/June issue has everything from noir, literary crime, amusing crime, traditional mysteries, hardboiled PI tales, and page-turning suspense.
