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

‘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.

Basing a Main Character On Yourself: An Alternative Perspective

Valid points for basing your main character on yourself.

Justice and Writeousness

hp1___mirror_of_erised_01_by_luvini-d4a67vz

I see tons of posts about how to not write a main character like yourself. They’re full of great tips, but I have to wonder, is that all necessary?

Certainly, if you’ve written several books, it’s good to switch things up: to force yourself into a new perspective. Don’t give yourself a free ride; you’re better than that! But for a first story, or a first serious story? Don’t write yourself off as an amazing character.

Crime Writer Geraldine Evans

I’d forgotten I had written this interview about how I set about creating a crime series! It’s inspired me to get on with my current Rafferty, which has spent so long on the back burner for one reason or another, that it was in danger of drying up altogether.

Nancy's Notes From Florida

Geraldine Evans is a multi-published author who writes the popular Rafferty & Llewellyn crime series. She also writes the Casey & Catt mystery series and has published historical and romance novels, plus articles on a variety of nonfiction topics. Geraldine2

Geraldine is a Londoner but now lives in Norfolk, England where she moved, with her husband George, in 2000. Deadly Reunion is her eighteenth novel and number fourteen in her humorous Rafferty & Llewellyn series. She is currently working on her next mystery in this series.

How I set about creating my first, Rafferty & Llewellyn crime series.

How on earth do you set about creating an original crime series? All I can tell you is how I went about it.

This bit will mean more to the Brits amongst you, though I know a lot of Americans also enjoy British cop and comedy shows. Anyway, having a love of both…
