How Not To Commit Murder – comedy crime – humorous mystery

by Robin Storey

Going straight is never easy – especially when you’re blackmailed into murder

“What a clever story with a wonderful balance of mystery and suspense and light-hearted comedy and fun.” A Life Through Books.

Career conman Reuben Littlejohn is determined to go straight this time after his release from prison, with the help of his new wife and her wealthy family.

But he hadn’t counted on stumbling across a plot to kill his parole officer Lucy, with whom he is madly in lust. The instigator, nefarious criminal Frank Cornell, blackmails Reuben into becoming his accomplice. The only way he can save Lucy is to pretend to go along with Frank’s Operation Luce-End, while making sure it doesn’t succeed.

Never have his skills in lying and cheating been so vital! But if Reuben’s plan fails, it’s his life at stake as well as Lucy’s. Add to the mix:

  • his attempts to find a รข??straight’ job when all he’s ever known is crime
  • a wife who’s trying to mould him into a pillar of respectability
  • in-laws who think he’s a lost cause

And Reuben soon discovers that going straight can be murder.

“There is a great balance between the Crime/Mystery part of it and the Comedy. I found myself guessing the whole way through, and being wrong quite a

bit, while laughing out loud.”
