Read full description of the books:
A Model Murder is a fast-paced mystery that draws scary, sometimes hilarious, parallels between alpha males in strip clubs and law firms.
This first book in the Alicia Allen Investigates Trilogy introduces Alicia Allen, a 29-year-old London Anglo-Italian lawyer whose desire for Pringles is matched only by her desire to solve crime. When her neighbor—a beautiful aspiring Australian model—is found raped and murdered before she can pick up her first paycheck at a sleazy “hostess” club, Alicia ignites with such passion to bring the wrongdoer to justice, it would make even Portia envious.
As her dangerous quest draws her into the dark world of exploitative “hostess clubs,” Alicia finds herself facing similar circumstances in a new law firm where alpha males roam the halls in solicitor suits intimidating or stalking undervalued female coworkers. Worse luck, the deeper she delves into the investigation, the more her comfortable world falls apart. Friends are viciously attacked...potential lovers may not be what they seem...clues pop up in Italian opera, Shakespeare, and a cat.
Alicia finds her willingness to risk her own life for the sake of justice is sorely put to the test in a world where Fate plays no small role.
The Alicia Allen Investigates crime novels are fast-paced suspense mysteries, full of twists and turns, following in the tradition of writers such as Nicci French and Sue Grafton.

Read information about the authorWriter and author of legal books and crime fiction (legal mysteries), with a love for reading and a passion for all things Italian!
I come from a legal background hence the legal handbooks, but the idea of writing a crime novel came to me after relaying to a friend some experience I had had within the law and him asking whether I had ever considered putting my thoughts down on paper. A Model Murder started with some pencil scribblings jotted down on the back of an envelope. My then literary agent told me that 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 to complete the first Alicia Allen Investigates series.
Alicia is very much the product of my imagination, but I have used my experiences of working within the legal profession and my love of Italy and Italian and, of course Pringles, in her creation. She has a dogged determination and a keen sense of justice, but most of all she has a conscience. She’s also very human and has her foibles! It was my intention to create key characters that appear in every book. I have written each of the books so that they may be read in isolation or as part of a series.
Many thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy the trilogy.
