LATEST EBOOK: ABSOLUTE POISON

Just published my latest ebook. Absolute Poison. This is the fifth in my Rafferty and Llewellyn mystery series and tells the story of the murder of a tyrannical office manager. Here’s the blurb:

Detective Inspector Joseph Rafferty is having a bad week – two pensioner suicides already and he can’t help feeling trouble comes in threes. Also niggling in his mind is the fact that Llewellyn, his posh sergeant, has brought a ‘bargain’ suit from Rafferty’s mother. Sure to be stolen goods, the suit is bound to drop Rafferty in it when the holier-than-thou Llewellyn wears it on his wedding day – with the hated and eagle-eyed Superintendent Bradley in attendance….

Rafferty’s first premonition turns out to be accurate when a company manager is found dead at his desk. The tyrannical Barstaple had known full well that he was hated by most of the office. But did he really deserve  to be poisoned? And so horribly.

Rafferty thinks his week has been  trying enough. But then someone else is poisoned and from bad to worse becomes worse again. And when you take the ‘bargain’ suit into the equation, the week really has gone to Hell in a handcart. And taken Rafferty with it..
I’ve had some nice reviews for this one. Here’s a couple of them from the original, traditional, hardback publication:

Well, this was a real find. Geraldine Evans knows how to make a character leap off the pages at you.’
LIZZIE HAYES, MYSTERY WOMEN ON ABSOLUTE POISON
‘An ingeniously constructed plot, deft dialogue, well-drawn characters, and a few humorous touches, make this an enjoyably intriguing read.’
EMILY MELTON, BOOKLIST ON ABSOLUTE POISON
