Salon #13: Murder Is Uncooperative with Merrilee Robson

Image resultMerrilee Robson, author of Murder is Uncooperative.

Merrilee Robson’s years as a member, volunteer, and employee in the housing co-operative sector has shown her what a difference safe, affordable housing can make in people’s lives–and how desperate the need to find such a home can be. She has published short stories and non-fiction, and has a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia. Murder is Uncooperative is her first novel, or second if you count the one she wrote in pencil when she was eleven. It is the first in a planned series.

“From the moment Rebecca Butler sets foot in the ‘too good to be true’ Waterview housing co-op, the pace of Merrilee Robson’s debut novel never flags.  Robson’s smart and savvy sleuth is a welcome addition to Canadian crime fiction.”  
– Gail Bowen, author of the Joanne Kilbourn Shreve mystery series

“A light, fun romp into Vancouver co-op housing, complete with full-colour characters of all ages and persuasions, with a touch of murder to keep pages turning late into the night. Merrilee Robson writes with comedic wisdom about the human condition.”  

– Robin Spano, author of the Clare Vengel Undercover novels

With the exception of a killer, the people in this book are just like your co-op neighbours. Merrilee Robson has nailed the co-operative experience and added a macabre twist.

– Nick Sidor, Director, Corporate Affairs, Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada
