Clarendon House Publications Enigma

Clarendon House Publications
Enigma: The Inner Circle Writers’ Group Crime/Mystery/Thriller Anthology 2018
 
There are many of you out there who already write crime stories or thrillers, and probably many more who would like to try. This is for you. I am looking for clever crime stories, detective fiction, fast-paced, entertaining and with twists. I am not looking for blood and gore or horror, though things may get forensic, I understand that. This could be anything from a Sherlock Holmes-type tale to a Bourne Identity-style thrill-a-minute.
 
Length: under 10,000 words. The due date for Enigma is August 31st.
