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?

DEATH DUES
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.

What’s the book about? I’ll tell you.

Clever plotting and polished prose make for a cracking good British police procedural.’ Booklist on Blood on the Bones.

Gladly-lapsed Catholic Detective Inspector Joe Rafferty wasn’t best pleased when he learned their latest case was at the local RC Convent, where a body had been discovered in a shallow grave in the grounds. The nuns’ order was an enclosed, contemplative one, and access to their house and grounds, with its surrounding eight-foot-high walls, far from easy.

Rafferty was inclined to think this was an inside job. Prejudiced by his rigid schooling, he didn’t find it as hard as his DS, Dafyd Llewellyn, to believe that nuns were capable of murder. But then, events meant that the suspects stretched to include the nuns’ doctor and the priest – who turned out to be none other than Father Roberto Kelly, ‘the greatest sinner in the parish’.

It was, for Rafferty, a difficult case from the start, not helped by the fact that he had received a blackmail letter that very morning. Convinced that one of the nuns had killed the man, Rafferty’s question: ‘Why?’ required him to dig deep into the past and to the mores of an earlier generation.

‘As always with a Rafferty/Llewellyn story, Geraldine Evans keeps you guessing and provides a pleasing vein of humour throughout. This is a well-plotted tale with an unusual theme. Clever and unexpected twists make the story a delight and, as always, the ending remains a surprise until the very last page.’ MYSTERY WOMEN (now MYSTERY PEOPLE)

For lovers of Detective novels with a copper who has a sense of humour/ Semi-Cosy.

PREPARING DEATH LINE FOR EPUBLICATION

Geraldine Evans's Books - PREPARING DEATH LINE FOR EPUBLICATION - DeathLineCoverMockup03Mini

Death Line is the third of the out of prints in my Rafferty & Llewellyn humorous mystery series that I’m publishing as an ebook. I’ve just reread it while I was adjusting the format after its conversion from an Amstrad disc and it strikes me as more serious than the other books. Its plot is also far more complicated. Whether those are good or bad things….

Anyway, I’ve just sent the book over to America to my ebook formatting lady, Kimberly Hitchens. If any of you are looking for a reliable and reasonably priced formatter for your ebooks you could do worse than use Hitch’s services. You can contact her at hitch@Q.com. This is also the third of mine that Hitch will ready for epublishing. I’m looking forward to working with her again.

Although I’ve selected a photo from iStockPhoto.com for use as the basis for the cover, I thought I’d experiment a bit myself, just in case I could save myself a bit of money. I decided, because the book’s called Death Line with a murder centred around a New Age business that deals in hand analysis (palm reading) and astrology, I thought I’d have a picture of a human hand with blood following the curve of the Life Line (to symbolize death). I also used a black cloth and pix of astrological symbols. What do you think? The one below is probably my best shot.

Geraldine Evans's Books - PREPARING DEATH LINE FOR EPUBLICATION - SDC10329

I tried to cut my own hand to get some blood, but apparently we have a houseful of blunt knives! Certainly none of them would cut your throat to oblige you. So I had to resort to other means. I didn’t have any tomato ketchup, so I used tomato puree. Then I tried red nail polish. Nothing if not inventive!

Each time I set my props up, got the tomato gunge on my hand, took the shots, then cleaned up and put everything away, my husband complained there was this wrong with it or that wrong with it. So I did it again. Four attempts later…

Well, I thought it was pretty good for a book cover. Not too cluttered, limited colour palette, stark. Though Rick Capidamonte, who does my jacket graphics wasn’t as impressed as I’d hoped. So we’re going with the picture I first thought of from iStockPhoto with Rick adding various elements to the basic hand picture. I really like it. I love the colours and think it’s pretty striking. What do you think of it?
