SYNOPSIS
MIX THE THRILLER with the detective story, and you get the crime novel proper. This is what Laurence Meynell has achieved with his latest book "And be a Villain." Here is sophistication of story telling, mixed with excitement of plot and close study of character. Life deals harshly with Antonia Warren just when it seems that nothing is wanting to her happiness, and driven partly by the bitterness that follows, partly by love of excitement, Tony is foolish enough to take the first steps which would have led her to a criminal career.
