DYING FOR YOU #6 RAFFERTY PROCEDURAL SERIES
'Evans brings wit and insight to this tale of looking for love in all the wrong places.'
KIRKUS STARRED REVIEW FOR DYING FOR YOU #6 in Rafferty series

'It's bad enough being suspected of a double murder, worse still when it's your alter ego being pursued and it's the pits when you are the policeman in charge of supposedly catching yourself. I thoroughly enjoyed Dying For You, the sixth in the series. A lot of humour is injected in Rafferty's narrative. He's got himself in an impossible situation and one wonders what can go wrong next. I savoured this book and I'm keen to read the rest in the series asap.' EUROCRIME

The Hanging Tree Fourth in the critically acclaimed Rafferty and Llewellyn mystery series
‘The original crossroads used to run by here,’ Sam told Rafferty. ‘Legend has it that this was the old Hanging Tree.’ Has some self-appointed execution murdered Maurice Smith? Smith, ten years earlier charged with mutliple child rape - a charge dismissed on a legal technicality, has been found, hooded and bound, hanging in Dedman Wood.
