Review

How Not to Commit Murder by Robin Storey is the quintessential story of the bad guy who turns over a new leaf. Reuben is released from jail only to get married and find he is living the kind of life he always dreamed of. Things start to go awry when his parole officer is replaced by a younger woman whom Robin finds himself in lust with. He meets with another criminal, by accident, who then tries to coerce him into helping kill the parole officer, called Lucy. Reuben finds it easier to go along with the plan and try to stop it from happening while trying to successfully land himself a career as a model and actor. The consequences of his actions lead him down a path that must be read to be believed.

Robin Storey's book contains all the ingredients needed for a night in with a good book. Although I found it a little bit on the slow side to start with, How Not to Commit Murder soon picked up the pace and reeled me in, so much so that I found myself quite disappointed when it was all over. The characters have been well researched and fit together well; the story has been written in a natural way and follows its course, like a river meandering through a valley, to its conclusion. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Robin Storey's tales of mishap and potential murder and would really love to see more from her.

From the Author

I was inspired to write this humorous crime novel by my work as a probation and parole officer. The main character, conman Reuben Littlejohn, gradually insinuated himself into my mind, and was based not on any one person but a variety of people I met, with a hefty dose of imagination thrown in.
I had a lot of fun writing this book, as you can probably tell when  you read it. I enjoyed the challenge of creating a protagonist who was a criminal, but also someone you could feel empathy for. And having first hand knowledge of the parole process, I was able to poke some gentle fun at it. 
Initially I thought I might struggle with writing from the point of view of a thirty-something male (which clearly I am not!) but it was easier than I thought. Although men and women are very different in the way they think and feel, we all still have the same hopes, fears and dreams.
