Secret Kill

Secret Kill (Noir Nights Book 2) is the second book in Noir Nights, a series of stand-alone short crime/suspense novels.

If you love complex characters and simmering tension with a strong noir flavour, you’ll love this novel about love, guilt and family ties.

Psychological Suspense At Its Best

Businessman Jackson Forbes is at the pinnacle of his career, after leaving a life of crime well and truly behind.

But when a young girl turns up in his office, claiming to be his daughter and threatening him with a gun, his life is suddenly not so rosy.

Frida is on the run and needs his help. Saving her life will mean not only returning to the criminal underworld, but also risking his reputation – and his life.

Not to mention the crime for which he was never caught.

Secret Kill Reviews

Anne Brogley

Little did the main character know, when he woke up one morning, that his life would change forever, that buried skeletons would come back to haunt him and worse. 

On the surface life is great but truth, past and present has a way of finding you. Everything changes and he embarks on a roller coaster ride into the future.




Well, this was a suspenseful short story that packed a punch and felt like a full length novel. Full of intrigue, murder and secrets I was drawn into Jackson Forbes world.
Although this was a novella the author still managed to inject plenty of character development and descriptive detail which helped to immerse me in the world.
There were plenty of twists and turns in the plot.

This is the first book that I have read by this author but it certainly won't be the last. I have the first book in this series on my TBR pile so I'll have to go back and read that one. This is a stand alone so no problems with reading this one first.

Interview With Robin Storey

What was your inspiration for this suspense novel?

I'd been pondering for some time about what happens when you leave your past behind and start a new life. 'Reinvent yourself' is the buzz phrase.

Is it ever possible to completely divorce yourself from the past, or will it come back to bite you at some point?.

What did you enjoy most about writing this novel?

What I enjoyed most about writing this novel, as I did with An Affair With Danger, Book 1 in the Noir Nights series, is telling a story in short novel form. 

Plotting the narrative and revealing characters in 40 000 words takes a lot of skill and the ability to write succinctly, yet evocatively. 

You want the reader to be able to immerse themselves in the story, feel empathy for the characters and not feel cheated by the length of the book.

And I enjoy the challenge.

What's next?

More books in the Noir Nights series. I have lots of ideas and characters rattling around in my head; it gets pretty chaotic in there!

The working title of my next book is Obsession. Here's the premise:

A lonely middle-aged man becomes obsessed with a woman and resolves to rescue her from an unhappy love life

It's dark suspense, with a vein of black humour. I started off writing humour, so it will always be present in some form or other in my books.
