A Rafferty P.I. Mystery Collection



THREE IN A BOX is an ebook collection of books 4 - 6 in the Rafferty P.I. series.


A double caseload means multiple mayhem for Rafferty. A trigger-happy octogenarian collides with a larger-than-life bounty hunter. One will win him an unexpected friend. The other could buy him a bullet. 


Rafferty's mistaken for a hitman. Before he knows it, the mark turns up dead and Rafferty's left holding the bag. Full of cash. Now the real hitman wants his money and he's prepared to burn down Rafferty's world to get it. 


Finding Sherm Akister isn't that hard, but telling his naïve wife that he was killed in a mob-connected whorehouse is. And with the witnesses now being murdered one by one, Rafferty must face the truth: sometimes it's a simple matter of kill or be killed.

If you're a fan of Spenser, Mike Hammer or Matt Scudder, then these hardboiled pulp thrillers, from Shamus Award Winner W. Glenn Duncan, will keep you reading late into the dark night.

Rafferty's a Dallas P.I. and an ex-cop who spent enough time on the streets to understand how things work. And when they don't, Rafferty's the guy you'll want on your side. He may quote Latin occasionally, smoke too much and be a cynical sonofabitch, but when it all hits the fan and you need someone you can trust, you'll be glad you called Rafferty.

"One of the best and most underrated hardboiled, wisecracking, private eye series of the '80s. Rereading RAFFERTY'S RULES is a real treat and a surprising testament to how well the Rafferty stories hold up...Don't miss out..." - Paul Bishop

Praise for W. Glenn Duncan:

"Sometimes it seemed W. Glenn Duncan's Texas P.I. Rafferty had a rule for everything, but the fact remains that most of them were a hoot. And, of course, a further irony is that "Rafferty's Rules" is, in fact, an Australian football term for "no rules at all." - Thrilling Detective Website

"Duncan truly captured the pure essence of the definitive smart-ass private eye in his character Rafferty. Take part Sam Spade with a little Mike Hammer, mix in some Spenser and you have an awesome character." - Cliff Fausset

"At first sniff, it may smell like Spenser with a cowboy hat, but take a good whiff: W. Glenn Duncan's Dallas, Texas private eye RAFFERTY was actually a blast of fresh air in what was rapidly becoming a glut of sensitive, soul-searching, overly politically-correct cookie cutter P.I.s in the late eighties. Of course, it helps that Dallas ain't Boston." - Kevin Burton Smith
