Overview

#1 in 15-strong Rafferty & Llewellyn mystery series
With his superstitious Irish nature, Joe Rafferty shouldn’t be surprised that his first case as a newly-promoted Essex detective is a tough one. But the murder victim, whom the newspapers have dubbed 'The Faceless Lady', has no ID and has been bludgeoned beyond recognition. She also supposedly had no access to the secure psychiatric facility where her body was found. The media has seized on the case, placing Rafferty in the spotlight. His boss, with whom he shares a mutual loathing, would love to see him fail.

Cursed by a malign fate and with a large family who believe obeying the Law of the Land is optional, Rafferty capitulates to his ma's demand that he does whatever it takes to get his distant cousin out of the pokey in time for his marriage to ma’s niece. Successfully accomplishing this sticky manoeuvre is sure to be challenging, and keeping it upwind of his morally stiff new partner might be a demand too far.

If Rafferty can't spring his cousin in time, his ma's liable to commit murder—his. And if the Faceless Lady's case remains unsolved, the Superintendent will black-mark his record so indelibly that his career will never recover. If he still has a career left to ruin.

Meet the Author

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

British mystery author Geraldine Evans is a traditionally published author (Macmillan, St Martin's Press, Hale, Severn House) who turned indie in 2010.

Her mysteries include the 15-strong Rafferty & Llewellyn series of British cozy procedurals whose protagonist, DI Joe Rafferty, comes from a family who think -- if he MUST be a copper -- he might at least have the decency to be a BENT one.

Her second is the 2-strong Casey & Catt mysteries, with protagonist DCI 'Will' Casey, whose drugged-up 'the Sixties never died', hippie parents, also pose the occasional little difficulty.

She has also published The Egg Factory, a standalone mystery/thriller set in the infertility industry.

Geraldine is a Londoner, who moved to a Norfolk (UK) market town in 2000.

Her interests include photography, getting to grips with photo manipulation software, learning keyboards and painting portraits with a good likeness, but little else to recommend them.
