Hot Summer Nights: A Detective Mike Eiser Short Story

Lonnie Rafferty has a handicap. Lonnie’s brother, Everett Rafferty has figured out how to use Lonnie’s handicap to make money and cause a lot of poor older people to suffer. It’s up to Mike Eiser to stop Everett, but Everett is a personal friend and Eiser knows nothing about arson. Can he stop Everett?


Lonnie Rafferty has problems. He is mentally and emotionally challenged; and he worships his big brother, Everett, his guardian and caregiver. He also has a compulsion he can’t control.
Everett Rafferty is a real estate agent, Sunday School teacher and pillar of the community; except that Everett has a few imperfections too. Everett is so wrapped up in his business that he would stop at nothing to make money, including using his brother’s compulsion.
Mike Eiser is a Sheriff’s Detective in Poplar Bluffs, a small north Georgia town. When houses start burning mysteriously in the poorest section of town, Sheriff Glenn Glassman assigns him to find out why. Teaming up with a beautiful and talented female state Fire Marshall’s Office investigator and an equally talented arson investigation canine, Eiser tracks down the arsonist. What he finds shocks both him and the town!
