From SAFFINA DESFORGES, international best-selling author of Sugar & Spice, Anca's Story and the Rose Red crime thriller series based on traditional fairy tales (Snow White, Rapunzel), comes ROSE RED RHYMES, a collection of crime thriller short stories featuring the Rose Red cast, based on traditional nursery rhymes. But be warned. These are not for children! ROSE RED RHYMES 1: Ring-A-Ring O'Roses When a rare family day out for Detective Chief Inspector Cass Red Rose and her barrister partner Philippa Crichton-Ward QC is cut short by a murder on Blackheath, Red’s team are faced with the possibility of gang warfare and race riots among London’s troubled youths unless they can sort things. Fast. With the Super wanting results yesterday, the pressure is on to find the killer. But DCs Barry Taylor and Jez Harris have other things on their mind. As usual. And when the pathologist examining the victim starts pointing out anomalies it’s clear a simple murder case is about to open up new mysteries. As if Red didn’t have enough problems, the Huntsman is back in town and meeting with the mysterious Queenie. And the kids want to go trick-or-treating. Even the busiest of detectives have to make time for Halloween! ~
Look out for more Rose Red Rhymes coming soon!
The Night Before Christmas will be available for the holidays.
