A crime novel from Transita

I blogged about non crime author Christine Coleman back in October when she made an author visit to Mere Green library. She's published by Transita, a company which features main characters in the more mature age group.

I was pleased to see in London's Murder One, that they've recently published a crime novel - 'Blood Precious' by Sara Banerji - which came out in January.

Synopsis:

Snobbish, aloof and eighty years old, Lady Arabella Cunningham-Smythe wishes she were dead. Then at least she could join her late husband as they had planned so meticulously before he died.

But a band of well meaning friends and relations are determined to thwart her wishes. It is only when her beloved four year old granddaughter Naomi - who has magical powers - is kidnapped that things change. Lady Arabella must regain the will to live if she is to turn detective, successfully outwit a mass murderer – and learn to master her mobile phone.

You can read about the author and an extract from the book at the Transita website.

This could be a touchy subject for some of us!
