Crime Novel (untitled) [see News for update]
1st DI Jack Kirby
An extremely wealthy and successful business woman is found murdered in a run down hotel. Robbery is not the motive, but what is? Who did it? Why? Was it someone from her past, or present life? Detective Inspector Jack Kirby and his team need all the resources available at their disposal to solve this intriguing case.
Read James McCreet’s forensic criticism to the beginning of:
Murder Most Foul(originally Only A Weekend)
‘This is not a bad start to a crime novel. The style style suits the content and there’s immediately a mystery for the reader. The premise and structure are good……… There’s the foundation of something good here.’
Under The Microscope, Writing Magazine, February 2019
“This world doesn’t give handouts; don’t expect any. You’ve got to go out and grab the opportunities yourself. You’ve got to put your back into study and work. Don’t expect others to pity you and do it for you; they won’t. It’s a hard, cruel world out there and it doesn’t owe you a living. The sooner you learn that, the better you’ll be.”
Quotation from Beverly Wright. Taken from my crime novel, Murder Most Foul
