For Readers who like cozy mysteries, humorous mysteries and police procedurals.
Murder victim Adrienne Staveley had a husband, a stepson, and several lovers. And while other men liked her too much, British Detective Joe Rafferty discovered her own menfolk had reasons not to like her very much at all. And as for her female in-laws...
Rafferty and his partner, Dafyd Llewelyn, had to sort through Adrienne's tangled love life to find just who had left her murdered -- strangled on her own kitchen floor. Needless to say, the seldom considerate fates had ensured Rafferty had suspects in plenty and motives too numerous to mention. The only thing he and his partner lacked was proof against any one of them.
And Joe Rafferty's wedding day was fast-approaching. Would he manage to solve the case and get off on his honeymoon? Or would the fates ensure he had to cancel and get in his bride, Abra's, bad books from the very start?

The murder appears to bear the hallmarks of the Suffolk serial killer, but could a copycat murderer be at work - a copycat moreover, who enjoyed intimate knowledge of the victim?
With the help of his sergeant, Dafyd Llewellyn, Rafferty begins to question Barbara Longman's family, descendants of the rich and powerful Maximillian Shore, As their inquiries continue it becomes clear that every person in the Shore household has motives in plenty for wanting Barbara out of the way.
So why should Rafferty have an instinctive feeling that their long-dead patriarch is in some way connected with Barbara's murder?
Rafferty's instincts are not enough, however, and firm proof of the killer's identity remains elusive. Until a memory from Rafferty's own past provides the vital clue which leads him to the terrible truth.
