ʻGeraldine Evans penned a wonderfully entertaining story.’
A Little Laughter. A Little Mayhem. A Little MURDER…
With his wife-to-be’s wedding budget spiralling out of control, and his Superintendent demanding the swift resolution to the series of muggings of a local loan shark’s collectors, DI Joe Rafferty is anticipating a long and trying week. And sure, enough, he isn’t disappointed.
When one John ‘Jaws’ Harrison is found with his skull caved in, in an alleyway backing on to rundown Primrose Avenue while on his way to collect debt repayments from the residents, Rafferty and his intellectual partner, Sergeant Dafyd Llewellyn, imagine the case will be easily solved. Armed with a list of local debtors, they begin their investigations. But they hadn’t counted on the conspiracy of silence amongst the residents — most of whom had good reason to want Jaws dead.
With the Super breathing down his neck and fiancée Abra sending his blood pressure to boiling point, Rafferty is forced to make some unorthodox decisions and stretch his intuitive powers to breaking point.
But if his only way to solve the murder is to get a little creative – with the truth or anything else – it’s better he does it than anyone else on the team, especially one or two who are a little TOO free thinking. It’s really just a matter of getting away with it . . .
