Stories in Rogues – “The Curious Affair of the Dead Wives” by Lisa Tuttle

Ready for a 19th century Sherlock-Holmes esque mystery-solving dynamic duo set in England? Then let’s dive into this story about a start-up P.I. team taking on a ghost story … but it ends up not being ghosts. Something worse. A monster.

This story is well-written and engaging. It makes you want to know what is going to happen. It’s a little contrived, but it’s easy to buy in, since the crime fighting problem solving duo is pretty familiar and versatile. It starts off with a little girl convinced that her dead sister has come back to life. And believe it or not, it gets more bizarre as you learn what is happening.

Read this one. It’s pretty straight forward, but difficult to guess. Good stuff here.
