Crime Beat Street- Daily Digest

As an intrepid reader navigating her way through the dark streets of crime fiction, I usually review books upon finishing them. However, I thought I'd experiment with a new way of reviewing on the latest book I'm reading. I'll be reviewing as I read and posting a daily digest of my thoughts. If you're reading the book as well I'd love to hear fellow readers' thoughts!

This week I'm reading… Continue

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Hi Ana,
Thanks for the read and the review. I like honest reviews, they're more interesting and useful than the other sort. Unfortunately a whole lot of what was described in the book is pretty commonplace (and accurately described) in the expatriate - and non-expat also - communities of Asia - maybe in other places too, but I'm familiar with Asia. The commodification of women pervades a lot of the societies there and enables some of the really horrific stuff that goes on. I tried to give my readers a sense of that.
In the new book, Grave Imports, Ray is so freaked out by what went on in Living Room, that things are somewhat different.

Hi Ana: I'll check out your blog as soon as I get a chance. You say you are a designer. Fashion? Graphic? Other? I write mystery and suspense novels.

Good blog, good logo, good choice of movies. And from LA? My kind of town (See THE BIG SWITCH, THE DEAL KILLER, and SHADOW OF THE DAHLIA.)

Glad to see you like Qiu, he's one of my favorites also. I'll probably set the fourth book in my series in Shanghai, I just hope I can do it justice.
