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

https://dl.bookfunnel.com/96mv4gt6xh

‘DARN GOOD READ.’ 17-STRONG 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.

4-NOVEL MYSTERY SERIES BOXSET

‘Contagious detective duo.’

DEAD BEFORE MORNING #1

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?

DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN #2

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.

DEATH LINE #3

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.

THE HANGING TREE #4

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.

17-STRONG SERIES

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

Rafferty Mystery The Hanging Tree #4, at 99c / 99p for two days only

the-hanging-tree-low-resolution-cover-51j48dusg1l
‘Terrific series.’ #4 in the Rafferty & Llewellyn mystery series.

I’m offering another of my mystery novels at the bargain price of 99c / 99p, for two days only, the 12/13 November 2016.

‘A great book. A wonderfully entertaining read.’

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

‘The old crossroads used to run by here,’ Sam told Rafferty. ‘Legend has it that this was the original Hanging Tree.’

The murder mystery of ‘The Hanging Man’, whose body disappears just before Christmas, and then turns up again, suspended from the ancient ‘Hanging Tree’, has Essex Detective Joe Rafferty questioning his belief in justice and his own role in its pursuit.

Rafferty knows he is expected to go after the murderer with as much vigor as he would any other killer. But he is in danger of becoming his own worse adversary as the victim was a man who escaped jail on a legal technicality after being accused of four child rapes. The case was a cause-célébre and caused much ill-feeling in Elmhurst’s community. In this police procedural, Rafferty must battle against the inner conviction that Maurice Smith – a man who ruined more than just his young victims’ lives – fully deserved to be murdered. He feels that if there is a self-appointed executioner at work, meting out his own form of justice on the legendary Hanging Tree, then Smith’s ‘executioner’ is more to be lauded than condemned.

Consequently, rather less than full of the Christmas Spirit as the Big Day approaches, Rafferty can only wish he hadn’t opened his big mouth and invited his partner, Dafyd Llewellyn’s mother to both his Ma’s spare room and the Rafferty clan’s festive meal. Because, from his own intuition and Llewellyn’s ever more dour expression as his mother’s arrival gets closer, he has reason to believe the wretched woman’s visit is going to end in disaster. And not just for Llewellyn’s burgeoning romantic relationship with Maureen.

Rafferty fears he is about to become the Fall Guy twice over. Because he is only too aware that if he fails to find the murderer because of his own repugnance for the victim, he will also fail as a detective and his moral dilemma will give him no option but to resign.

There are seventeen books in the Rafferty & Llewellyn series:
Dead Before Morning #1
Down Among the Dead Men #2

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!

GOING BACK TO WORDPRESS.COM

Why? Because I’ve had so much trouble over a two-year period from my self-hosted site. I could post, but I couldn’t customise, or do anything else radical without putting my password in. I’d forgotten my password, and every time I tried to change it, I was sent to the page that says ‘Couldn’t find what you’re looking for’! I was fit to be tied, and if I had a knife I’d have stuck it in someone!

game-of-bones-bk-18-360x540-website-1

No. Don’t get excited. I’m only using the cover of my work-in-progress to demonstrate how I felt. I’ve spent so much time trying to sort out the *!*!*!* website, I haven’t been able to concentrate on my book.

Anyway, I explained the problem to WordPress. Several times. I explained the problem to my self-host, Hostgator. Several times. I explained my problem to my designer. Several times. I couldn’t get an answer that solved my problem from any of them.

I’d also suffered a stroke in the intervening months, so I really could do without all the hassle and sheer frustration. I was left paralysed down the right (main) side, so I suffered from enough frustration already without my website adding to it. I’d give you a list of the things I can no longer do, but it would be a long list, and you’d die of boredom before you got to the end. Besides, I’m still discovering what they are!

No, I’m no Einstein when it comes to tech things, I’ll grant you that, and if I wasn’t so inept, I could probably have fixed it. All you techies are probably laughing your socks off at my dilemma, and saying, ‘Dumb broad’. Fair enough. You can’t be good at everything. Most of the things I am good at, are part of that long list I mentioned earlier.

I had reached the stage of throwing in the towel to such an extent that I hardly ever posted. But now I’m involved in several bundles, and I need to show willing and promote them.

Amazingly, my wordpress.com site worked-no password required, so I finally decided to return to it. Okay, it might not have all the bells and whistles of the self-hosted, designer-created site, but at least I can get into it! For now, possibly forever, that’s all I require.
