He cleaned the bathroom quickly and expertly.

The plastic sheet and forensic suit returned to his bulging briefcase he changed back into his clothes, and with a last glance around the hotel room – checking he had left no trace of his presence – he silently let himself out of the room and made his way down the back stairs to the deserted alley where his driver waited for him…

Reviews for Undercover: Crime Shorts

Roger A. Price – crime thriller writer.5.0 out of 5 stars

 A brilliant collection of stories.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom.

Undercover – Crime Shorts: is a wonderfully satisfying anthology of seven stories which transcend above the crime fiction genre providing a ripping yarn irrespective of preference. Jane Risdon has cleverly stitched together a mix of tales to suit all fans of the genre. And the last one being a taster of Jane’s next crime thriller about ex-MI5 officer Lavinia Birdsong; who wouldn’t want to know more about a character with such an interesting name! Highly recommended.
