HALLOWEEN AT SHEEN

HALLOWEEN EVENT: Author event:  E.V. Harte

“The Prime of Miss Dolly Greene” by E.V. Harte – come and meet the author on October 31st at 5pm, and hear all about her latest book !!

The Tarot talks . . . but is anyone listening ?

images

In the heart of South West London, just a short stroll from the Thames, lies an enclosed and overgrown bike path and a single row of cottages. Foremost among Tinderbox Lane’s hotchpotch of loyal residents is professional Tarot reader, Dolly Greene: divorced and permanently broke, she shares her tiny house with her 21-year-old daughter Pippa.
When, one stiflingly hot summer’s day, Dolly reads the cards for the hedonistic Nikki, her usually professional patter is interrupted by a sudden vision – a flash of Nikki’s face, covered in blood and bruises.
A few days later, when the body of a battered woman is washed up by Chiswick Bridge, Dolly is haunted by the belief that Nikki’s time may have come . . . but can she be sure? And how far is Dolly prepared to go to act on her intuition?
