Dead Before Morning: British Detectives (Rafferty & Llewellyn Book 1)



A murder investigation…and Joe Rafferty’s already got trouble in spades.

His first case in charge looks like being his last. Because he suspects that the case of the 'Faceless Lady' is a poisoned chalice. Gifted by his new boss, who is only waiting for Rafferty to fail, to put the boot in. He's even arranged his even newer partner—a pedant who rubs him up the wrong way from the start.

Rafferty’s boss looks hand-rubbing ready in anticipation of his failure. If he’s got some detective favourite ready to slot into his space, the case of the ‘Faceless Lady’ looks likely to be the one to do it. 

All he can do is grit his teeth and hope for a lucky break.

But when he gets it, it’s from such an unlikely source that he suspects the fates are having a laugh at his expense. But it’s the only clue he’s got, so he has to follow it up.

Will he end up with egg on his face? Or solve the murder against all the odds?

Rafferty wishes he knew. The only thing he’s sure of is that his boss won't hesitate to get rid of him if he drops the ball. Determined to deprive him of that satisfaction, he goes with his gut-instinct, but keeps his fingers crossed all the way.

A Perfect Storm Of Injustice

Charles Wilkerson's life is pretty set. He has a beautiful and loving wife, Dana, and a delightful toddler son, Travis. However, life can change drastically in just the twinkling of an eye. Dana's beaten and murdered body is discovered in their bedroom while he is at work. Travis witnesses the gruesome event and knows who the murderer is, but he is too young to testify in court. Besides, no one believes him anyway. Charles, as an African-American man married to a white wife, is immediately suspected by the local law enforcement authorities of the murder. Then follows a "perfect storm" of police racial bias and prosecutorial malfeasance, and the result is life inprisonment for Charles. He spends over a quarter-century in prison until he is aided by the Innocence Project. Though the wheels of justice turn agonizingly slowly and the state will fight any attempt for exoneration tooth and nail, Charles is finally pronounced innocent. The real murderer is disovered, tried and senenced. Charles tries to begin his life again as a free man. The plot is a compilation and fictionalization of real-life situations of death-row inmates he mentored as spiritual counselor in the Florida State Prison. Charles' story is similar to that of dozens of persons who have been wrongfully sentenced and imprisoned. Some, like Charles, are fortunate enough to receive expert legal assistance and are set free.
