Good afternoon. It’s Friday, May 24.

In today's newsletter:

Crime fiction thrives year-round, but summer is an ideal time to plunge into the genre when you’re not in the pool or the ocean. (Or maybe even when you are.) From assassins and AI to disappearances and the dreaded PTA, here are some of the thrillers you can look forward to this season.

Anchorage weather


It's overcast today with a chance of rain and a high near 54 degrees. Saturday could be partly sunny, but rain returns to the forecast for the rest of the long Memorial Day weekend. Daytime temperatures will hover in the mid- to high 50s.

Here’s what else is making headlines in Alaska today.
