I grew up reading Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mysteries, and looking for clues in the ordinary behavior of my friends and family. Then I graduated to the Alfred Hitchcock school of mysteries, where innocent people were often caught up in situations that were beyond their worst imaginings. That led to police procedurals, and whodunits and a whole slew of other figure-it-out reading.
Much as I loved solving the mysteries, I often wondered about the shadowy characters who perpetrated the crimes. The people who had gone over to the “dark side.” So I decided that while I’ll write stories from the point of view of the problem-solvers, I’d also write from the criminal’s point of view as well — they’re not always who (or what) you might expect. I hope you enjoy exploring what makes these characters tick as much as I have.

Meg, the protagonist is a female assassin, but the murders don't start to happen until rather late in the story, though Meg has the contract right from the start. Unusually well-written, in Meg's brilliant, scheming voice, as she thinks and acts her way through one surprising quandary after another.
Grab yourself a copy of Conflict of Interest, and your only disappointment will be having to wait for Meg's next adventure. But no matter how long you have to wait, I guarantee you won't forget Margaret Harrison, aka Megan Harris, aka Meg. Emotionally detached. Businesslike. Rich.
