Jane Austen meets Lara Croft: a paranormal detective refuses to let danger and death inconvenience her in colonial Kenya.
Mrs. Beatrice Knight is preparing to start a life of marital bliss, or at least marital satisfaction, with her new husband who fortunately is very much alive and can’t float through walls. While she is no expert on honeymoons, she’s certain that they shouldn’t involve brainless heads, bloodsucking fireflies and Bubonic Plague.
These however are mere inconveniences, for there’s another threat of greater significance: the Nandi are rising up against their colonial masters and are determined to rid the land of all things British. The intrepid Mrs. Knight faces all this with her usual aplomb, her hefty walking stick and, of course, a pot of tea. But will her marriage survive?
Curse of the Nandi is the fifth case in “Society for Paranormals”, where African myth
meets Victorian manners. If you adore “Pride & Prejudice”, appreciate British humor, enjoy paranormal mysteries, or would love to experience adventure in colonial Africa, then get ready to start your supernatural safari! On 10 May, the book will have a 2-day special launch price and will include a free short story. Book 1 – Ghosts of Tsavo – and the prequel are both free (http://veredehsani.co.za/free-books/).
