How to commit the perfect murder: Melanie Raabe
In Melanie Raabe's new novel, The Trap, Linda sets up a trap to capture the killer of her sister Anna. But how would Melanie commit the perfect murder...
What's your weapon of choice?
My brain. My bare hands. (And maybe a note book and a pen.)
What is your motive?
My motive? The need to express myself and the urge to entertain my readers with something I myself would like to read. I will stop at nothing.
Where is the scene of the crime?
I usually commit my crimes at my desk or at my kitchen table. I wrote THE TRAP at my kitchen table. Nowadays I have a desk – but old habits die hard.
What is your getaway vehicle?
I would probably try to get away by foot. But a hoverboard might be great alternative. Maybe I should get one.
Who is your accomplice?
My friends. All of them. And since my friends are all very smart, I will definitely get away with anything. Including murder.
Do you have a calling card?
Not yet! Thanks for reminding me.
The Trap, Melanie Raabe's gripping story of a novelist plotting to expose her sister's famous killer, is out now.
