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!"
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.
I know how $$resources go, I've got my fingers crossed I can get to the Indy Bouchercon -- it's looking pretty good but I'll let you know for sure when I'm able to sign on. I'm very sorry to hear about your mom. We lost my husband Greg's mom at Christmas this year too. Take care, I'll be thinking about you.
How cool to hear from you! And thanks for the friend-mail, this is a new mystery direction for me, so I really appreciate hearing from an old mystery-con friend. Hope all's well with you,
Hi Maggie, I was intrigued to get an invite from Sierra! I didn't see her at Bouchercon, but oh, sure enjoyed every second I got to visit with Janet, so think part of that was the doggie vibes. And, I believe, you're responsible for my learning about tuckerization. I can't tell you how many times during pre-B'con it was such a great word to use! When things got frustrated, we yelled, GO GET TUCKED, and I meant it, truly, for it must be a wonderful thing to have characters named after you in so many published works!!! But we did get giggling about it, as we sometimes tend to do, and it is all because I read somewhere, maybe DEADLY PLEASURES site, that you held the record for the most tuckerizations. We're slipping and sliding in Anchorage. Glad you could come up for our B'con and hope to see you at LCC -- I likely won't be in Denver in March, but one never knows! I am planning on Hawaii in 2009 and Baltimore for Bouchercon (maybe).
We've been real life friends for a long time.
Now I'm glad to be your Crimespace friend too. You were one of the first people to really sell and promote my books, and review them so nicely too. Thank you!
I saw that the day it came out and sent it right to my publicist. Again, many, many thanks. The next in THE BLACK WIDOW AGENCY series, SPUN TALES, will be out July, '08 so I'll make sure you get a copy. Best, Felicia
