This series gets better and better.'
Little Laughter. A Little Mayhem. A Little MURDER...
A nine-month pregnant wife, a murder victim found on an archaeological dig minus his fingers, and very limited time, meant that Joe Rafferty wasn't a happy bunny. Superintendent Bradley, media darling and determined to stay that way, only added to Rafferty's stress.
They discovered that their murder victim had vanished from Spain, where he worked for Charlie Carver, a Mr Big of the Costa del Crime. But Rafferty's visit to Spain was cut short when to Abra went into labour. And despite his promises that he'd be there at his child's birth, wouldn't you know the French air traffic controllers had staged their usual summer strike.
Superintendent Bradley, with the heady thought of promotion filling his mind, demanded he get Charlie Carver, who'd be a big feather in his cap with the brass. But Rafferty was convinced Carver wasn't the murderer this time, whatever else he might be guilty of. Becoming a daddy for the first was a big thing for Rafferty, in more ways than one. But he didn't know how he was to satisfy Abra that he was pulling his weight with the baby and at the same time find the killer.
His first marriage had held similar demands, but he couldn't risk what he had with Abra, yet at the same time, he was determined to find the killer, whatever the cost.
