'Such clever writing with just enough comedy to keep one laughing.'
A Little Laughter. A Little Mayhem. a Little MURDER...
For Readers who like cozy mysteries, humorous mysteries and police procedurals.
Superstitious British Detective Joseph Rafferty is having a bad week -- not an unusual occurrence -- and he can't help feeling trouble comes in threes.
Rafferty's first premonition turns out to be accurate when a company manager is found dead at his desk. The tyrannical Barstaple had known full well that he was hated by most of the office. But did he really deserve to be poisoned? And so horribly.
Rafferty's week goes from bad to worse and worse again. And when you take Llewellyn's 'bargain' suit into the equation and Superintendent Bradley's anticipated reaction to this iffy piece of shmutter, the week really has gone to Hell in a handcart. And taken Rafferty with it.
But maybe even Hell will be the better destination compared to the possibilities the Superintendent is sure to have in mind.

In Geraldine Evans's Absolute Poison, the fifth Rafferty and Llewellyn mystery (after Dead Before Morning), the two detectives investigate the murder of a despised company manager, found poisoned at his desk.
