Endorsement by

Roger A Price: Former Detective and Author of Nemesis, Vengeance and Hidden, says:

Undercover – crime shorts; is a wonderfully satisfying anthology of six short stories which transcend above the crime fiction genre providing a ripping yarn irrespective of the reader’s crime fiction preference.

Jane Risdon has cleverly stitched together a mix of tales to suit all fans of the genre.
