About Paul Underwood

Paul Underwood died in 2010 of Mesothelioma.
He was a wonderful man, full of humour and compassion and much loved. Although he was an artist and taught art and painted for many years, whilst he was ill he discovered a love of writing and poured out words when he was no longer able to paint. He wrote several stories, short and long. 'A Difficult Murder' is the first of these to be published.

Reviews

Review by: melsaalfeld on Feb. 19, 2014 :
A Difficult Murder is a beautifully-written novella, in which the protagonist is a gangster. The author cleverly writes the story in the first person, engaging the reader from the very beginning, ensuring that the reader empathises with this lovable rogue. The violence and murders are seamlessly balanced within the warm and humorous narrative.

The storyline is compelling and the book is very difficult to put down. The plot commences in London, where the protagonist is introduced to a life of crime, but moves to New York, through an intricate plot with an unexpected twist. It is both entertaining and heartwarming.

It is so tragic that this author has passed away. I hope to read more of his work, edited and published by his wife, in the future.
