KIRKUS REVIEWS ON A THRUST TO THE VITALS

#10 in the Rafferty & Llewellyn procedural series
Returning to Elmhurst many years after his involuntary departure, to attend a civic reception in his honour, Sir Rufus Seward had 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.

ABOUT THE 15-STRONG RAFFERTY SERIES
DI Joe Rafferty, working-class lapsed Catholic, is cursed by coming from a family who think — if he must be a copper — he might at least have the decency to be a bent one. When you add the middle-class, more moral than the Pope, liberal intellectual DS Dafyd Llewellyn to the brew the result is a procedural murder mystery with plenty of laughs for the reader and more than enough angst for Rafferty.
