"The Accessory" appeared in the June 2014 issue of
Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine.


"In 'The Accessory' Robert Lopresti shows how giving us some, but not all, of the thoughts of one character can tease the reader along until the inevitable conclusion and, how, again, a skillful
writer can gain sympathy for a character through judicious use  of her thoughts."   -Bill Crider, Mystery Scene, issue #135
