Product description

Product Description

‘I immediately connected to the characters and wonderful plot.’

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

Returning to Elmhurst many years after his involuntary departure, to attend a civic reception in his honour, Sir Rufus Seward ignored the maxim that 'going back' is not always wise.

Summoned after Seward's body is found, a wood chisel protruding from its back, Dl Joe Rafferty receives a panicky call from his younger brother, Mickey, who fears he is in the frame for Seward's murder. Strangely, given his loathing of the dead man, Mickey had received an invitation to the reception. Keen to confront the bully who made his youth a misery, Mickey found his tormentor's body, and fled the scene... Rafferty, aware that his brother hated Seward, and that Mickey, a carpenter by trade, has three pointers to guilt – the means, the motive and the opportunity – finds himself torn between protecting his family and finding the real killer.

But he can't protect Mickey forever. And if he wants his little brother to have a normal life again, he must find the killer—as a matter of urgency.

Rafferty's complicated and intrusive family are putting me off. Maybe I like my lead detectives to be more professional.
I will give him a miss for a while

I immediately connected with the characters and wonderful plot. This isn't a tedious description of bones and DNA and red herring. It is a very well detailed mix of past sins and greed with family ties. Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very satisfying read 17 August 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I had one very big problem with this book. After receiving it for review, I discovered it is tenth in a series so now, after reading it, I have to go get the first nine. Because I want to know everything about the whole Rafferty clan. The book is just the right balance of police procedural and humor.

A party. A stolen invitation. A body - Sir Rufus Seward. A man everyone seems to hate. But his murder seems to have set-up Mickey Rafferty to take the fall. Before anyone realizes though, Detective Inspector Joseph Aloysius Rafferty spirits his brother away to hide in a less than desirable caravan. So while JAR, as he is called by Mickey, races to find the real murderer all the while worried that if he isn't quick enough, he will be charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

I enjoyed the character Sgt. Dafyd Llewellyn - a moral high ground kind of guy, who upholds the position of sidekick we see so often in British police procedurals, very well. And I liked how fiancé Abra is able to sit JAR down, get him talking everything through and focusing his mind to see what he missed. That looks like it will be a promising personal partnership for the Detective Inspector.

I look forward to going back to the beginning and reading this series from one end to the other.

I'm a firm fan of Rafferty & Llewellyn although I will admit this is not my favourite in the series. Nonetheless, it's an easy read with some great characters deftly drawn you can't wait to have their comeuppance to keep me turning the page. Looking forward to reading the Book 11.
