I got the rights back to Deadly Reunion from Severn House Publishers last year, and when I looked at it, it was to find I only had half the book saved on my computer. Eek!
I looked everywhere: past and present computers, Dropbox, the Cloud, everywhere. I thought I’d have to type the whole bloody book again, but I was saved from such a dismal prospect by Linda, one of my Beta Readers.
Phew! Anyway, here’s the blurb:
When a former pupil attending a school reunion at the prestigious Griffin School is found dead it is at first assumed Adam Ainsley died from a simple heart attack while out for a run in the nearby woods.
But the retired ex-professional rugby player was a fit young man in his thirties, who hadn’t been near a doctor for years, so a post-mortem is called for. The PM’s toxicology report shows that Ainsley was poisoned, but whether by his own hand or that of another’s is far from clear.
When DI Joe Rafferty and his partner, Dafyd Llewellyn, are called in to investigate, they find plenty of simmering emotions amongst Ainsley’s co-reunees. It seems Adam Ainsley, the school’s sporting hero, had made a lasting impression, and not always for his prowess on the sporting field.
And when the detective pair delve deeper, they find reasons for the lasting resentment. But how to prove which one of the ex-pupils has let feelings fester for twenty years, to end in murder, isn’t so readily apparent.
And Rafferty’s Ma, Kitty Rafferty, hasn’t chosen her dates well for organising a reunion of her own. Coping with a high-profile murder case at work, and temporary guests at home ensures Rafferty finds little peace to think constructively in either place.
Will this be the investigation that culminates in Superintendent Bradley finally achieving his aim of stripping Rafferty of his hard-won inspector rank?

Do you want to read 25 novels for $3.99 for the lot? Well, now you can, by such authors as Ava Mallory, Carolyn Mickelson, Elizabeth Crabtree, Cate Dean, Alannah Foley and loads more, including me! Now available from all retailers, even Apple (currently says it’s NOT available on Apple. But try the link, it might just be my cranky conputer).
This Bundle won’t be available for ever, so my advice would be to buy it now, because the individual novels, once they’re out of the bundle, will likely be this price or very near it, each.
Today is your last chance to buy this 4-mystery ebook bundle at 99c / 99p. I had to extend it for a few days at Amazon because I had left it late to do the other retailers, so you Amazonians got a bonus. Definitely not to be repeated – I’ll get my act together in future!
From an enclosed convent, via a stashed suspect brother, loan sharks, and a pub: all contain a murder mystery that DI Joe Rafferty must solve.
My third Rafferty bundle is now ready, formatted, spellchecked, and all systems go! Well, apart from B & N Nook, who still haven’t put it up on their shelves. Slowcoaches! Yes, it’s now also up at Nook!
The bundle consists of these novels:
BLOOD ON THE BONES #9
DI Joe Rafferty’s latest case is in an enclosed Catholic convent. It is anybody’s guess whether lapsed Catholic Rafferty catches the murderer before religion catches up with him.
A THRUST TO THE VITALS
Can DI Joe Rafferty find the real murderer before he is forced to arrest his brother, Mickey, for the crime?
With his wife-to-be’s wedding budget spiraling out of control, and a series of muggings now escalated to murder, DI Joe Rafferty’s attempts to control the situations, land him in hot water on both counts.
ALL THE LONELY PEOPLE
When Detective Inspector Joseph Rafferty visits his local pub for a quick drink, he’s looking to forget his troubles, not add to them. His ex-fiancée Abra is still refusing to talk to him, and he’s fast losing hope of a reconciliation. But Rafferty is not destined to enjoy his drink in peace. Because a man is found dead – stabbed in the pub’s car park – and a preoccupied Rafferty is to lead the investigation.
