“Labor Day,” AHMM October 2011 issue is fifth in the Holiday Burglars series. Yarnell and Beaumont have successfully burgled a top floor condo in an old building and are trying to quietly depart with the loot. Unfortunately, their ancient get-away elevator keeps descending slower and s-l-o-w-e-r, while a pregnant passenger can’t wait. Now, the closest help onboard for medical services may be The Thin Guy, their burglar protégé who used to work as a mortician.
