Turner Raines

Created by John Lawton

Sweet Sunday, a 2003 standalone by the writer of the popular Inspector Troy series, is set in the summer of 1969, and attempts to cover the often toxic turmoil of the sixties.

It introduced TURNER RAINES, a disillusioned thirty-something private eye who's definitely feeling his age. But he's finally found his forté -- it's tracking down hippie runaways and draft dodgers who've found shelter from the storm in Canada and reassuring their parents. But with his propensity for turning up at key events (Woodstock! The Chicago riots! Norman Mailer's ill-fated bid for mayor of New York City!), Turner comes off as a more hard-boiled version of Forrest Gump.
