Editorial Reviews

Review

"A Model Murder by Celia Conrad is anappealing new modern crime story. Alicia lives in England and is halfItalian and I quickly found myself rooting for her. Alicia is a lawyerwho is starting a new job in a law firm that turns out to be not exactly what she had expected. Her neighbor Tammy, trying hard to become amodel, is raped and murdered while working at a low life hostess club... Aliciainvestigates and is faced with threats and near death experiences. Itbecomes difficult to be sure which of her friends to trust and which are really not whom they appear to be. Twists and turns abound as we aretaken into the sleazy nightclub world and the inner workings of a lawfirm looking for the killer rapist.

It took me a while to get used to some of the British dialogue and Ihave no idea of what the Italian phrases sprinkled throughout meant, but it made no difference in the reading of A Model Murder. I was hooked on page one and completely and pleasantly surprised when I reached theconclusion... Celia Conrad has jumped to the top ofmy favorite author list and Alicia Allen is without a doubt my favoritenew fictional lawyer/investigator crime solver..."

READERS' FAVORITE 5* Review

"When I first started reading A Model Murder I couldn't help feeling that Alicia was already a well established character that had been around the novel block a few times... I think being able to make you feel like you had spent time with a character before a debut novel takes some writing talent.

I think the author also showed off her skills in scene setting. I loved the seedy dirty atmosphere. I enjoyed the strong female lead and gritty backdrop. I look forward to meeting Alicia Allen again soon."

CRIME BOOK CLUB

From the Author

The idea of writing a crime novel cameto me after relaying to a friend some experience I had had within thelaw and him asking whether I had ever considered putting my thoughtsdown on paper. A Model Murder started with some pencil scribblingsjotted down on the back of an envelope. My then literary agent told methat I would have to write more than one book to be taken seriously as a crime writer which led to Wilful Murder and finally Murder in Hand tocomplete the first Alicia Allen Investigates series.

Alicia isvery much the product of my imagination, but I have used my experiencesof working within the legal profession and my love of Italy and Italianand, of course Pringles, in her creation.
