Worse yet, when a body is found in the charred third-floor apartment, the police think Willie is the killer. Reed hops into action to clear her name, but as his own list of suspects grows, so does the danger. Can Reed find the culprit who committed murder, or will his investigation go up in flames?
The latest installment in the Reed Ferguson mystery series is sure to keep readers riveted until the final page.
Praise for the acclaimed first novel in the Reed Ferguson mystery series, THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN IN THE MOVIES:
Kirkus Reviews on this private investigator series:
The promising kickoff to Pawlish’s comic mystery series, starring far-from-perfect PI Reed Ferguson. Pawlish earns high marks for plot construction, with twists and turns naturally unfolding as Ferguson, inexperienced but not incapable, feels his way through the case. A good-humored mystery series worth following.
Readers’ Favorite on this mystery series:
This is one witty, hilarious private detective story that will keep the reader glued to the pages until the very end.
5 Star Review
There is little doubt that Renée Pawlish is a promising new voice to the comic murder/mystery genre. Quite noticeable…is Pawlish’s adept development of the plot coupled with her ability to contrive clear, concise and playful prose with almost perfect pacing.

From Champion Jockey at 22 to down-and-out at 27, Eddie Malloy is bitter and desolate, reduced to living in an ancient caravan working for a tyrannical horse dealer. Estranged from his family and the sport he loves, Eddie cannot forget or forgive the racing authorities for believing false allegations of horse doping against him which robbed him of his riding licence.
With another miserable Christmas looming, Eddie’s discovery of murder victim Danny Gordon in the racing capital of Newmarket offers him a perilous path to the resurrection of his career. He must balance that ultimate reward against the risk of becoming a victim of Gordon’s ruthless killers.
Warned Off was first published by Hodder & Stoughton. Here is a flavour of the press reviews from the print edition:
‘It’s a racing certainty that Warned Off will offer a challenge to Dick Francis. It’s packed with authentic dialogue and characters.’ Today
‘A very professional racing thriller … lots of rough stuff, plenty of racing background and action all mixed up with a love interest combine to provide a fast-moving story.’ Publishing News
‘The plot is from the racing stockpot … fast and violent.’ The Times
Written by ex-top jockey and BBC commentator Richard Pitman and racing journalist Joe McNally, Warned Off is the first in the series of 6 mystery crime thrillers by the duo.
Warned Off sees the debut of Eddie Malloy, who features in 5 of Richard and Joe’s novels. The book has been rewritten and moves along at an even faster pace now.
We hope you enjoy Warned Off which also contains an excerpt from book two in the Eddie Malloy series, Hunted.
