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.

Thanks for the friend invite. Great tunes on your page, too. I've always been interested in period crime stories. Good luck, and I hope to bump into you here soon.

Persia, tried to order books from your website (tried both Firefox and IE) but wouldn't work - kept getting error messages.

Thanks for accepting my request. I enjoy history, places, and people, so your subject matter is interesting to me. Yours is probably not my typical reading material, and that is what intrigues me about your 1920's work.

Since I spend all of my working life on contemporary crime, I can see how rich that material is, but It's probably not as much fun to research than period work!

As far as Law and Order is concerned, I enjoy it as entertainment. But, criminal intent is the most like what I do and I find that it is well done, at least in my experience as an investigator and former trial lawyer.

You are welcome. Really like your computer character layouts - The two I really like are RUTH (She's a babe) and the woman laying across the cover of the book. Very Cool.

Are you reading Blue Religion, or in it? I just got a copy two weeks ago at BEA but haven't had a chance to really look at it. But it's on the "To Be Read" stack

Your page is lovely Persia.
it took me like a year to get mine the way I wanted it. for background--just put in something (tiled)--like an old dance hall or something-I chose Roseland Dance Hall actually! thanks for the compliment.
Love your book Harlem Redux. I feel I'm there. so atmospheric with a damned good plot.

You're most welcome. And thank you for checking out Chasing the Dragon. It's the first chapter in the novel I'm shipping around to agents now.

Thinking of checking out some of your stuff as well. I'm planning to write a crime novel set in twenties New Orleans. I figure some of your old timey slang may be able to pour on a good coat of starting fluid for it.

Thanks for the friendship. Look forward to reading some of your stuff. I've just started Simon Spurrier's Contract and have three 4 feet high TBR piles at the moment!!!

Take care,

Thanks for the add, Persia. you've chosen a wonderfully rich period to write in! I look forward to reading you.

thanks so much for your tip, Persia (what a beautiful name). I'll do that too--I was more caught up in police procedure and stuff like that--although I do and will try to read up on things more widely as well. great suggestion. believe me, you'll be the first to know when it's actually a book! all the best,

Just ordered Harlem Redux! It's coming from the States, will take a while-but looking forward to it. it sound terrific. can't wait. all the best,

What a great period to write in. And what a setting. Wow. How do you research? I'm limited--I'm Manhattan born and bred but have lived in Yorkshire England for years (marriage)--I do my research for the 1950's (remote enough for me)! by reading novels etc. Any secrets for research?

Thanks for the invite. How did you do your research on Harlem in the 20's? Should make for a good read.
