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.
Ha!! My husband is THE VERY best!!!(he's put up with 6 surgeries in the last 13 years,4 in the last 3 years & now we have the BIG PAUSE to go thru!!!) & I bet he has more senoirty than yours Linda!!LOL!! & I bet my animals are more plentiful than yours too & prolly older LOL!!!!! I love this place I found thru your website.
Boy, I love to read, too. I guess most authors do. My Claire Morgan mystery/thrillers aren't very cozy, in fact, they're pretty dark and disturbing. You know, twisted serial killers, and all that. ; ) But they've got humor, too, which evens it out a little.
Thanks, Linda. I think our pets come back to us, somehow--I really do. Different form, different personality, but sometimes ... well, I can see we can swap stories when we meet at a conference sometime. Meanwhile, take care, and give them all a hug from me and mine--Bertie (Springer Spaniel) and Vienna (Burmese). :)
Kelli--I'm so sorry for your loss. I cried three days when my dog, Sammy, was hit by a car. Pete and Tigger were the ones I lost this summer--both around 15 years old but it was so sudden and happened so close together. I'm the same way. I get upset just thinking about it. One thing, though, that was really strange. Right after we lost them, a beautiful little stray white cat showed up with her two baby kittens. We adopted them, of course, for our outside pets. I think it was God's way of giving us back our lost two, with a spare. : ) But it doesn't stop my missing the ones who are gone.
Hi, Linda! Thanks for the invite! It's a pleasure to meet you.
And heartfelt sympathies on the lost pets. I lost my beloved Siamese last fall, and it still hits me--sometimes I'll wake up in the morning and cry. Can't help it. We've subsequently rescued a Burmese, and we love her, but that has nothing to do with the mourning. So take care, and know you're not alone in how you feel.
