Clan Destine Press' writers and editors have some great content this month, with a true crime podcast, a great Irish TV show, and a Scarlet Stiletto ebook from Sisters in Crime, full to bursting with award-winning crime stories and ready for download in seconds. Love that one and there are eleven more anthologies to keep you cool this summer. Onward!
