Game of Bones #18 Rafferty and Llewellyn mystery series. Last Day @ 99c

Game of Bones, BK 18 360x540 (Website)


‘Darn good read.’

‘Thoroughly enjoyed the whole series. Great characters and story-line.’

Sergeant Llewellyn’s remark that, perhaps, ‘Someone else’ had made them a gift of Professor Babbington as the murderer, was just sour grapes, in Detective Joe Rafferty’s opinion.

But Llewellyn had planted a tiny doubt where none had existed before. Rafferty, convinced in his own mind that they had the right culprit for the murder of University Administrator, Rupert Hunter-York, forced himself to disregard Llewellyn, who was known to greatly admire Babbington. They had so much proof it was embarrassing: Babbington’s fingerprints on the murder weapon; the victim’s blood on his shirt; and his DNA on the dead man.

So Rafferty couldn’t believe it when his ‘sure thing’ slowly began to unravel. He refused to admit his growing doubts about Babbington’s guilt to Llewellyn, who continued to champion the professor, and was as convinced of Babbington’s innocence as Rafferty was of his culpability.

But then they discovered surprising new evidence, and all Rafferty’s certainty vanished into dust. He prepared himself to face the music when Superintendent Bradley came back from his expensive holiday, to find that the ‘sure thing’ he had left with Rafferty, had inexplicably become anything but. 

Unless Joe Rafferty could find some way to turn defeat into triumph

FREE 4-Mystery Boxset – Part of the Rafferty and Llewellyn 17-Book Series


Tired of reading avid authors’ descriptions of serial killers’ sadism?

Long for a mystery that introduces you to an engaging, often failing, main character?

Then meet Detective Inspector Joe Rafferty. He tries. He fails. Educated in the University of Life, not Oxbridge, so he certainly isn’t a detecting genius like Sherlock Holmes. He’s got his problems—A Ma who’s pushing him to marry again; a larger family who don’t always obey the letter of the law; and a po-faced partner who looks with a jaundiced eye on his often mercurial conduct of cases – never mind his family. His family – many of whom think that if he must be a copper, he might at least have the decency to be a bent one. And then there’s his boss…but the less said about him the better.


‘Contagious detective duo.’


A murder victim with no face. A media calling for answers. And a detective with a family not averse to a little gentle law-bending. 

Newly-promoted British Detective Joe Rafferty and his partner, Sergeant Dafyd Llewellyn in a murder mystery involving the killing of a young woman bludgeoned beyond recognition, with no ID and found in a secure place to which she supposedly had no admission. Who is she? How has she gained access? And who was responsible for her murder?


A murder victim with no known enemies. A dead patriarch. And a detective who’s struggling.

Rafferty and Llewellyn set out to discover who killed Barbara Longman, a woman with no known enemies. But it soon becomes apparent that the murder has been committed by someone who must have known the victim very well.


A murdered seer who failed to predict his own future. A partner who refuses to see the murder as an inside job. And a Detective who’s coming up empty. 

The detective duo try to solve the murder, with his own crystal ball, of the famed ‘seer’, Jasper Moon. Gradually it becomes clear that Jasper Moon was a man of many parts, not all of them very savoury.


A disappearing murder victim no one would miss. A witness destined to haunt him. And a Detective who felt ambivalent about getting a conviction. 

The detective pair investigate the case of the vanishing hanged man. But when the dead man turns up for a second time, they discover he was a man many had reason to hate. Because Maurice Smith, charged years earlier with four child rapes, had escaped on a legal technicality. Was someone acting as the public executioner, dealing out their own form of justice on the legendary Hanging Tree?

If you like the Detective Bill Slider novels, the Dalziel and Pascoe series, and Stephanie Plum, the multi-book Rafferty & Llewellyn series brings the wit, wisdom and willingness to bend the law with the best of them.


Buy this book to learn about the enterprising Joe Rafferty, his ne’er-do-well family, and po-faced partner.

Interview with Savannah Mae


 SC: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’m Savannah Mae. I’m new to self-publishing, but not new to writing professionally. For the last decade, I’ve been writing articles for multiple publications and for websites. I’ve always toyed with the idea of writing a book but pushed the thought out of my head. Earlier this year, I turned forty and declared that this year of my life would be a year of saying no to fear. I did what I thought was impossible and started writing cozy mysteries.

SC: Was there a certain time in your life you knew you wanted to write?

I don’t recall any specific moment when I realized I’d wanted to write. I do, however, remember each and every time I convinced myself otherwise. Intuitively, I think I always believed it would happen someday.

SC: What are you currently working on?

I’m working on the second book in my Jinx Cove witches series. The first book is included in this 25-novel bundle.




KOBO SALES LINK:…/25-mysteries-to-die-for-a-25-…

We have yet to get the Apple link and the Amazon link will only be available on the publication date, 27 December 2016.

SC: Of the books you’ve written, which one is your favorite and why?

My favorite is the only one I’ve completed thus far, Mayhem in Jinx Cove. I’ve probably read it a dozen times or more. I’m proud of what I’ve created and hope readers enjoy it.

SC: What books have most influenced you as a writer?

I love mysteries. When I was growing up, the Nancy Drew series and the Hardy Boys series were staples on my bookshelves. I read them over and over again.

SC: What do you find to be the most challenging part of writing? And the most rewarding?

The most challenging part for me was working up the courage to let others read it. Handing it off to beta readers and editors was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done.

The most rewarding part is the process. I loved getting out of my daily routine and letting my imagination run wild.

SC: What book is on your nightstand?

I’m currently rereading Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone’s Alphabet Series.

SC: What can we look forward to seeing from you in the future?

In 2017, I plan on releasing the next two novels in my series.

SC: Is there anything you’d like to share with your readers?

I want to thank them for taking the time to get to know me and I hope they’ll love Mayhem in Jinx Cove as much as I do.

APPLE – Hurrah! Managed to upload my box sets :)

Finally! I’ve done it. My two Rafferty & Llewellyn Box Sets are available on Apple. Phew!

‘Contagious Detective Duo.’

APPLE  EBK BUNDLE RandL Books 1to4 - Geraldine Evans

I swear I was cursed with Apple. Whatever I did, there was something wrong with every book I tried to upload. Metadata – wrong. Cover – wrong. Don’t mention the other big ‘A’ – wrong. In fact don’t mention anybody, apparently including your own website – wrong.

Anyway I’ve finally done it to Apple’s liking. Miracle!

I really need a lie down now, but I’d better get on and upload the rest of my books while I’m on a roll!

PUBLISHED AT LAST! All the Lonely People, Rafferty & LLewellyn #12

LONELY PPLE BRIT TEC SERIES EBOOKselfpub-72dpi-1500x2000 (13)
#12 Rafferty & Llewellyn series

Finally got over the last hurdles with this book and published it to Amazon last night. So pleased. And so relieved! I swear that malevolent fate that follows my poor DI Joe Rafferty around has transferred its attentions to me. 🙂

But it’s done now, in spite of the lost disc, in spite of the endless copy- typing to update the digital edition, in spite of my hatred of copy-typing and the unwelcome attentions from the fates, I finished sorting everything out. And it feels wonderful!

I’ll get busy today and upload it to the other retailers, too.

Heres the blurb and the links:

All the Lonely People

#12 of 15 in the Rafferty & Llewellyn British Detective Series 

A Little Laughter. A Little Mayhem. A Little MURDER…

For readers who like cozy mysteries, humorous mysteries and police procedurals. 

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.

What at first appears to be an open and shut case quickly becomes a lot more complex. The witnesses all plead alcohol-induced amnesia, and Rafferty’s habitually cautious sidekick, Sergeant Dafyd Llewellyn, isn’t helping either—casting doubt on all of Rafferty’s conclusions.

And as Rafferty wrestles with the case, he also has to wrestle with Abra’s determination to avoid their problems. Soon, he is in despair on both counts…

The twelfth book in the quirky, not quite so Traditional British mystery series.

Tremendous Growth in the Sale of Self-pub eBooks in the UK

Did all you indies out there see this? And if you have a phobia about the number thirteen, you might be interested to note that this Guardian article appeared on Friday the 13th!

According to the latest information from Neilsen Book, sales of self-published titles in the UK increased by a massive 79% in 2013, with an estimated value of about £59 million over 18 million units sold. In spite of the book market as a whole reducing by 4% last year, the growth of the ebook market in the UK rose by 20%, around an estimated £50 million, of which around £26 million were self-pub books; Just over fifty per cent. How impressive is that?

The article also comments on which type of ebook sells best and to which age range: if your books appeal to women, either buying for themselves or for their children, you’re on to a winner!

Here’s the link if you want to read the rest:

Okay, those figures might still be only a small percentage of the overall market, but it surely shows the way things are going.  I, for one, take enormous encouragement from this data and have no desire to scurry back to traditional publishing any time soon.

How about you?

And for those of you concerned that library loans of your books won’t translate into sales, here’s another article that should help to lessen that anxiety:


And, if you’re eligible for Public Lending Right income, it’s looking hopeful that legislation will shortly be enacted to make PLR payable on library loans of ebooks, as the UK Government intends to seek Parliament’s approval to allow rights holders to register their works from the 1st July 2014 to allow for payment in February 2016.

Here’s the link (click on ‘Government Response’):
