JUST PUBLISHED! No 17 RAFFERTY AND LLEWELLYN SERIES
A nine-months pregnant wife, a murder victim found down a trench in an archaeological dig, minus his fingers, and very limited time, meant that Rafferty wasn’t a happy bunny. Superintendent Bradley, media darling and determined to stay that way, only added to Rafferty’s stress.
They discovered that their murder victim was small-time crook and drug dealer, Joey Briggs. He had vanished from Spain, where he worked for Charlie Carver, a Mr Big of Spain’s Costa del Crime. But Rafferty’s visit to Spain was cut short when to Abra went into labour. And despite his promises that he’d be there at his child’s birth, wouldn’t you know the French air traffic controllers had staged their usual summer strike.
Superintendent Bradley demanded he get Charlie Carver who’d be a big feather in his cap from the brass. But Rafferty was convinced Carver wasn’t the murderer this time, whatever else he might be guilty of. Becoming a daddy was a big thing for him, in more ways than one. Because it led him to the true murderer, with a motive as old as time.
AVAILABLE ON KINDLE UNLIMITED
Yes, I know, it’s been a while. For which apologies. But, in mitigation, the next one is three-quarters finished. So yay, for me. 🙂
Anyway, without further ado, here’s
Detective Joe Rafferty thinks: nice easy sex murder, when young schoolteacher Laura Scott is found murdered and half-naked. It puts his problems – from his brothers accusing one another when ‘stuff’ goes missing from their lock-up, to the Chief Constable’s porno-starring granddaughter – in perspective.
Until it doesn’t. Because his brothers, amateur entrepreneurs in a small way till now, have started to branch out. And the CC’s porno-star granddaughter? He’s to make it all just go away, though the message isn’t clear about just how he is to accomplish this convenient disappearing act in these days of videos going viral on Youtube.
Even his nice easy sex murder—isn’t. Laura Scott might have been murdered, but she wasn’t raped or interfered with in any way. In fact, the case gets a whole lot more complicated. Because it seems Laura Scott was all things to all people, and everyone can’t be right. To Rafferty, like Russia to Winston Churchill, Laura turns out to be ‘A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.’ But it is only by finding the real Laura that he can find her murderer.

It’s not quite finished yet, but it’s getting there. I’m using the services of Fausga (www.fausga.com) as my designer, though I suggested the spilt mug of tea and the wording on the mug. It seemed appropriate as my DI Joe Rafferty is always swilling the stuff.
I love the sliding elements at top and bottom. In theory, I’m supposed to be able to update them any time I want myself. Hmm. We’ll see how that goes! I did take a look at the area where I make the changes so that I could put up All the Lonely People, my latest digital release, but I backed away sharpish! I think I’ll need to edge very slowly into that, maybe with a bit of hand-holding from my designer. Terrified, if I make a hash of it, that I’ll muck up the whole shebang.
This is now officially a self-hosted website, via Hostgator. If I’ve understood things correctly (big if), I should be able to do a lot more with this site than I could when it was hosted as a freebie by WordPress. But don’t expect miracles overnight. It really will be a case of making haste slowly.
I decided to change the cover on DEATH DANCE No 13 in the Rafferty and Llewellyn procedural series, my latest digital release.
While I loved the colours in my first choice, they didn’t blend with the black/red/white colour-scheme of the others in the series, so it had to go! One of my impulse buys, alas.
A wedding rehearsal.
A woman murdered.
A stepson who loathed her.
And Abra, DI Joe Rafferty’s affianced bride…
