Roger A Price: former detective and author of Nemesis and Vengeance, says: Undercover: crime shorts; is a wonderfully satisfying anthology of seven 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.

To read these stories you can buy from:

Waterstones branches (order) ISBN: 9780359397839
