Summary

Bradley Wright and two friends terrorized their high school.
 
Rafferty watched the whole thing go down, clear as day. It’s as open and shut as he’s ever seen.
 
So why does the killer’s mother want him on the case?
 
Rafferty couldn’t do anything but stand and watch as Bradley Wright and two friends terrorized their high school; unable to do a damn thing until it was already too late.
 
Two of the killers are dead, Bradley’s on life-support, and if he ever wakes up the cops will be right there waiting to make sure he pays the ultimate price for the crime.
 
After what he witnessed, Rafferty can live with that.
 
So, when Bradley’s mother knocks on the office door and asks him to help prove her son’s innocence, Rafferty’s first reaction is to tell the lady to go to hell.
 
On the other hand, getting paid good money to poke around the edges of an open and shut case?
 
It almost sounds too easy …
 
How far will Rafferty go to make sure that justice is served?
 
——————————————————————————
 
In the tradition of the best pulp thrillers, WRIGHT & WRONG is the eighth book in the Rafferty: P.I. mystery series.
 
Rafferty’s a Dallas P.I. and an ex-cop who spent enough time on the streets to understand how things work.
 
He may quote Latin occasionally, smoke too much, and be a cynical sonofabitch, but when the shit hits the fan and you need someone you can trust, you’ll be glad you called Rafferty.
 
If you take your mysteries hardboiled, drizzled with pulp, and an extra helping of wise-cracking tough talk, you’ll love Rafferty: P.I.
 
Buy WRIGHT & WRONG today and continue the series readers are saying is “… on my list of great private eye writers along with Kinky Friedman, Elmore Leonard, and Lawrence Sanders.”

Praise for Rafferty: P.I.
 
“If you like Parker’s Spenser, or Robert Crais’ Elvis Cole you should love the Rafferty series.” - Mark A. Johnson.
 
“Sometimes it seemed W. Glenn Duncan's Texas P.I. Rafferty had a rule for everything, but the fact remains that most of them were a hoot. And, of course, a further irony is that "Rafferty's Rules" is, in fact, an Australian football term for "no rules at all.” - Thrilling Detective Website
 
“I have all of the Rafferty titles in my collection. I've gotten rid of a lot of stuff over the years, but the Rafferty books are a mainstay. I think they're terrific!” - Paul Bishop - Author of LIE CATCHERS
 
“Duncan truly captured the pure essence of the definitive smart-ass private eye in his character Rafferty. Take part Sam Spade with a little Mike Hammer, mix in some Spenser and you have an awesome character.” - Cliff Fausset
 
“At first sniff, it may smell like Spenser with a cowboy hat, but take a good whiff: W. Glenn Duncan's Dallas, Texas private eye RAFFERTY was actually a blast of fresh air in what was rapidly becoming a glut of sensitive, soul-searching, overly politically-correct cookie cutter P.I.s in the late eighties. Of course, it helps that Dallas ain't Boston.” - Kevin Burton Smith
