Undercover: Crime Shorts
Here I am in my office having just received my author copies.

The stories were fun to write and I enjoyed researching different methods by which I could murder my victims and make their deaths look like unfortunate accidents. I dread to think what anyone makes of my online searches. I am not a homicidal maniac.


Oddly enough, I never resorted to seeing my characters off with knives or guns. Their methods of despatch was much more subtle.

Wherever possible I used everyday items to see them off, and I devised a couple of accidents outside the home which could easily be explained.
