Bleeding Ice-COVER ART - Grace RellieOutside the air was cold and inside Florence Keenan’s blood was cooling. It had been three hours since her heart had given its final struggle with the Angel of death and lost. With each final pump her pain had increased ten-fold until Florence prayed for death. With her last exhale she’d mentally screamed in terror as reality sank in. She was going to die. Her time had come and she wasn’t ready. She didn’t want to die. She wanted to live. So terribly bad did she want to live. And then it was all over but she didn’t immediately realize it.

…… Standing over detective Bill Smythe’s shoulder Florence began to read his notes. “They’re like reading chicken scratches,” she harrumphed . “Imagine a grown man whose handwriting is worse than a second graders.”

Slowly as she studied the page she began to see similarities and discerned his letter styling. “He thinks I was killed because of hidden money?” She felt like laughing. Her hidden money amounted to seventy-four dollars in the kitchen cookie jar. If the crook had killed her for that he was a desperate crook. She would have felt pity for him if he hadn’t killed her.

When Florence Keenan is murdered she finds that life doesn’t end with death. First she must grapple with the fact that she is a ghost and then with the knowledge that the only way her death can be avenged is to do some detecting of her own.

Detective Bill Smythe hates killers and those that kill little old ladies even more. As he works the Keenan case he frequently feels as if he’s being watched and those letters by an anonymous tipster keep him spinning but always on the trail of a killer.

Join Florence and Detective Smythe as they work side by side on parallel planes to bring a murderer to justice and cross the boundaries of time and space doing it.

Bleeding Ice is firstly a murder/mystery fantasy. At times you will be shocked and at others laugh at the antics of a ghostly lady who refuses to bow to conventions in life or in death. It soon will be available for pickup at both Amazon.com and Smashwords.com. Please stay tuned.
