First Graphs: Locked in Death by Eric Mayer and Mary Reed

Today's First Graphs excerpt is from the short story, "Locked in Death," by Mary Reed and Eric Mayer, published in The Mammoth Book of Perfect Crimes and Impossible Mysteries, ed. Mike Ashley, Robinson, 2006.

Reed and Mayer are also authors of the John the Lord Chamberlain mystery series from Poisoned Pen Press, set in 6th century Constantinople.

Excerpt from "Locked in Death:"

"During his years with the Mongolian police Inspector Dorj had witnessed crimes in sufficient variety to inspire several Shakespearean tragedies, but until the crowbar-wielding midget sent the locked door of the circus caravan flying open the inspector had never seen a man murdered by a corpse."
