'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.'
When Inspector Rafferty hears that a bound and hooded body has been seen hanging from a tree in Dedman Wood, he dismisses it as a schoolboy hoax. But then the witness turns out to be a respectable local magistrate, who identifies the corpse as Maurice Smith. Once accused of four child rapes, Smith's case became a cause-celebre when it was thrown out on a legal technicality, causng much ill-feeling in the community. And now Smith seems to have disappeared...
Then the body turns up again in the woods. Could there be a self-appointed executioner at work, meting out his own form of justice on the legendary Hanging Tree?
'CLEVER AND BELIEVABLE CHARACTERS.'

ABOUT THE 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 intellectual DS Dafyd Llewellyn to the brew the result is murder with plenty of laughs for us and plenty of angst for Rafferty.

About 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 soon-to-be 18-strong Rafferty & Llewellyn series of British Mysteries, 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 British 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, Reluctant Queen, a biographical historical, about the little sister of Henry VIII, romance (under the pseudonym of Maria Meredith), and non-fiction (some under the pseudonym of Genniffer Dooley-Hart).
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.
