David J. MontgomeryOf all the literary writers who dip their toes in the dark waters of crime fiction, few do so with the credibility and acumen of Joyce Carol Oates. The focus of The Museum of Dr. Moses, her latest collection of mystery stories, is on relationships. Whether they are between man and woman, parent and child or simply between strangers, Oates uses these relationships to generate the tension and conflict that any good suspense tale requires…By finding the horrors that exist in everyday life—always the most fertile source for fear—Oates has crafted a suspenseful and satisfying collection. Some of the stories in The Museum of Dr. Moses hew more closely to mystery than to the macabre, but they are all a ghoulish delight.
