Summary

SERIES REVIEWS

'Darn good read.'

'Thoroughly enjoyed the whole series. Great characters and storyline.'

Sergeant Llewellyn's remark that, perhaps, 'Someone else' had made them a gift of Professor Babbington as the murderer, was just sour grapes, in Detective Joe Rafferty's opinion.

But Llewellyn had planted a tiny doubt where none had existed before. Rafferty, convinced in his own mind that they had the right culprit for the murder of University Administrator, Rupert Hunter-York, forced himself to disregard Llewellyn, who was known to greatly admire Babbington. They had so much proof it was embarrassing: Babbington's fingerprints on the murder weapon; the victim's blood on his shirt; and his DNA on the dead man.

So Rafferty couldn't believe it when his 'sure thing' slowly began to unravel. He refused to admit his growing doubts about Babbington's guilt to Llewellyn, who continued to champion the professor, and was as convinced of Babbington's innocence as Rafferty was of his culpability.

But then they discovered surprising new evidence, and all Rafferty's certainty vanished into dust. He prepared himself to face the music when Superintendent Bradley came back from his expensive holiday, to find that the 'sure thing' he had left with Rafferty, had inexplicably become anything but.

Unless Joe Rafferty could find some way to turn defeat into triumph…
