Bonnie MacBird, friend and author of Art in the Blood, was visiting New York for the BSI (Baker Street Irregulars) Society Weekend where she gave a talk on Saturday morning and signed copies of her book. Linda had the pleasure of her company for lunch at Trattoria Dell'Arte while she was in New York. Art in the Blood, the first in the trilogy, was published by Harper Collins UK in September 2015, and has had enormous success selling almost 10,000 copies in its first three months. Congratulations, Bonnie!
