Three men, three motives, one murder. Who will come out on top? No one ever said murder was easy.
Nicholas Latimer considers himself indispensable to advertising agency NeO-aD – unlike his partners Barraclough and Spencer. Sometimes Nicholas thinks it would be better if he was running it by himself. If only some unfortunate accident would befall his colleagues…
Paul Spencer has just about had it with Latimer’s incompetence and wilful time-wasting. Spencer knows for a fact that he is the cog that keeps NeO-aD rolling and wishes that Barraclough would take a stance and get Latimer out of the way.
And Barraclough? He just wants to do his job without the constant bickering of his two insufferable colleagues.
When a new client (approached by Latimer, he might add) presents an opportunity for the company to hit it big, Latimer contemplates taking matters into his own hands. He hasn’t considered, however, that Spencer and Barraclough might have plans of their own…
Murder Isn’t Easy was first published in 1936.
