The final novel in this thirteen-book series was one of the earliest editing jobs I did for Solomon Carter back in December 2015!
Smoke rises on the horizon.
Dan Bradley and Eva Roberts arrive back in their home town after a chaotic case to discover their office has been burned to the ground. Physically exhausted and living under the shadow of their enemy, they must now track down the arsonist who has destroyed their base of operations. Dan has his suspicions. On the brink of collapse, Eva finds the bottle has never been more appealing.
Dan sets out to prove that the main suspects are innocent while Eva goes it alone to search for evidence to convict their nemesis. But when Dan is suddenly removed from the picture, Eva’s fate seems sealed… and Rowntree gets ever closer to realising his deepest, darkest desire.
The game is rigged… The rules are changing… and eyes watch from the shadows. LTD13 Lucky for Some – Could it finally be checkmate for Eva Roberts?
One thing is certain -, private detectives Roberts and Bradley will need a damn sight more than luck to survive this final battle…
The third installment in The Final Trick series featuring Eva Roberts and Dan Bradley – another page-turner as always from Solomon.
A young call centre worker dies in tragic circumstances – her hand plunged into the broken casing of a live server unit. The fatal incident means an urgent investigation, but Detective Inspector Hogarth seems intent on passing the buck to an HSE investigations team. But Eva and Dan’s latest client is certain Jane Wallah didn’t die by accident. They learn she was working to uncover a company conspiracy. It seems the Scarlet and Lace call centre has skeletons in the closet… and before too long, others will join them.
The long shadow of suspicion is cast in all directions, even to their client himself. When death strikes again, Eva is convinced the dark secrets of Scarlet and Lace must be brought out into the light.
Meanwhile, Councillor Cotterill is getting in too deep.
And Eva and Dan discover a man is watching them from the streets.

Private investigators Eva Roberts and Dan Bradley are hired to honour a young man’s memory and to prevent another bloodbath.

Sleazy Roles isn’t their usual type of client – but the case pays, and right now, money talks.
Meanwhile, Jonathan Parker continues to scheme at the worst possible time. Could it be his delusions are getting out of control?
A quick but emotional read - reading about the cruelty to the dog was heartbreaking but this was a lovely tale of the love and healing that animals can bring to our lives.
I would have given five stars but for the missed typos - a few t...
I get the impression that this could be a nice story but I've had to give up after forcing myself to go as far as 15% of the way through. If this novel has ever been near a remotely professional editor then the author was conned.
Another very enjoyable story but with a few niggles, hence the four stars rather than five. Maybe it's because I was tired but the editing issues grated on me more than in the first story and, do people really generally believe that 'ear...
