The author Vijay Daswani has completed his latest novel
soon to be published on 28th April.

Tom Spicer; A Still Small Voice

Vijay writes under the pen name D.A.Swainl.

Reviewed recently by Mr J Snow:

 "Set in the 1920s, the story moves between
the English Lake District and colonial India.  
I found it gripping - a real page-turner!  
It’s full of intrigue".

I warmly recommend the book to old Killertonians and ex-Lukies who remember Vijay"
