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. 

A confrontation is inevitable.
