DEAD BEFORE MORNING
A murder victim with no face. A media calling for answers. And a newly-promoted 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
A murder victim with no enemies. A dead patriarch. And a detective who’s struggling.
British Detectives Joe Rafferty and his partner, Dafyd Llewellyn, in their second murder mystery investigation, 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 well.
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.
Third novel in the Rafferty & Llewellyn mystery series, Death Line sees the detective duo trying 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 appeared very savoury.
THE HANGING TREE
A disappearing murder victim no one would miss. A witness destined to haunt him. And a Detective who felt ambivalent about getting a conviction.
Fourth novel in the Rafferty & Llewellyn mystery series. This murder mystery involves the detective pair in the case of the vanishing hanged man. But when the hanged man turns up in Dedman Woods for a second time, the British detectives are able to confirm that he is a man many had reason to hate. Because Maurice Smith, charged years earlier with four child rapes, had escaped on a legal technicality.
If you like the Detective Bill Slider novels, the Dalziel and Pascoe series, and Stephanie Plum, the Rafferty 17-strong series brings the wit, wisdom and willingness to bend the law with the best of them.

British author Geraldine Evans’s dream for years was to be a published novelist, a dream she achieved in 1991, after many abandoned novels, six completed novels and six years of rejections. Her ambition, after publishing eighteen books traditionally, was to earn a living as a writer—something the majority of trad-published writers discover to their quiet despair, is impossible. But after half-a-lifetime, she finally took the plunge in 2010, turned indie, and within six months was able to give up the long line of poorly—paying day jobs, and work full-time as an author.
Her working life included stints in a psychiatric hospital, a public library, running their own vehicle repair workshop with her mechanic husband, an au pair, behind bars, in factories, for the legal world, the energy world and the insurance world as an office temp. She’s helped out in the Constituency Office of her local Member of Parliament, and looked after other people’s dogs while their owners took a holiday.
She spent most of her life in London (UK), where she was born and brought up, the youngest of four children, but moved to a market town in Norfolk (UK) in 2000, with her late husband. When she takes her nose off the keyboard, her interests include photography, getting God-like in the greenhouse, learning keyboards and painting amateur portraits of unwilling victims. Or at least they were, but since suffering a stroke in 2015, she’s trying to learn them all over again, this time using her left hand. Oh well, she‘s up for a challenge!
