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 James
Your background is unique for this site, but intriguing to me. I was an editor on Pharmaceutical Executive for seven years, so I interviewed a lot of scientist in search of cures. Very passionate and noble people.
On the subject of crime writers, Leslie Glass is one of my favorites (when she's writing about April Woo).

Hi! How are you, Jim? I am searching for Silent Spring. I am very eager to read it!

WOW! What a lot of info to digest! I'm one of those "hunt & peck" sort of people, as opposed to "design and build" It's sort of like, I know how to drive a car, but I don't know how it runs or what to do if it stops running. That's my life in re to computers. I've operated computers since the early 70's, but they have progressed so far in technology, that it blows my mind. I sometimes find it hard to keep up. So I learn a lot from people like you. Thanks for your patience and thanks for the explanations. I learn more every day.

I'm new at the writing and promotion game, and even newer to the world of "blogs." Can you explain in detail about "Blog Carnivals?" It sounds like I could post chapters of my books there to get people interested in them.

Thanks for the comment, Jim, re; Buddy Guy's... Sorry you won't be up here. I haven't read Linda Barnes' book but I have read several of Ace Atkins. Wonderful depiction of the Blues.

Jim, your Aunt Gladys sounds very cool indeed. I spent my high school years in the late 50s hanging out in Washington Square with the folkies and ALWAYS brought my guitar to parties. :)

Hi James, welcome. I noticed that you like "international crime fiction" so I figured you might find my stuff of interest. I'll check out your site and get back to you.

Thanks! If you want to delete my comment from your page, feel free. Confused again, I thought I was sending you a private note instead of a public comment. Best wishes, Jim
