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.
Hi Camilla! I was cruising through MySpace sending Valentine wishes to my friends. If it's not in your message box, I said: My all kinds of love come your way: romance, intimacy, friendship, family, community. I hope you've got April 15 on your calendar for my launch and birthday party at the Mysterious Bookshop! Maybe we'll even get to a DorothyL lunch before then. :)
Hi Camilla, you make a good point, but occassionally it is nice to have a little distraction. I think the online now feature does Crimespace a disservice but it is just my point of view. Thanks for the reply, I am now logging off once more so I can finish the edit on my next novel and no longer be tempted to see if there is anybody out there.
Thanks Camilla, particularly for your offer to vet some of the Italian in new book. Miguel's Italian is very good, but he can't spell, even in Spanish. I have a few expressions in this book that I would love to send to you to see if they're correct. If you would be willing to do this, I would be very appreciative.
Also, we're leaving for Maine Monday and returning a week later and then back to Maine on August 26 until Thanksgiving. However, I'll be here the week of August 20 and will be going down to Soho to review line edits. If you're around that week, perhaps we could meet for lunch. And thanks so much for buying my book. Very much appreciated.
We do have a lot in common. Miguel used to have studios in Brooklyn, formerly in Greenpoint, and in what was the Brooklyn Eagle Warehouse. Are you a figurative painter?
The name of my book is "The Last Enemy," but I will confess in advance that you will find the occasional spelling error in Italian--I had the Italian text vetted by a number of friends in Assisi, but the only one who picked them up was the person I didn't ask to read! Of course!
Laura Hruska is my editor, and very thorough. She's reading the latest, "A Deadly Paradise," at the moment, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this time she doesn't find any misplaced dashes.
We live on 36th between Madison and Fifth, but will be away in Maine for a bit, beginning Monday. Perhaps we can get together when we return. You have a lot in common with Miguel as well.
Hi Camilla, I had to invite you to be a friend because of your name. I have a sister named Camilla. I love the name and am writing a new book where a Camilla has a staring part. It is going to be a surprise for my sister. I'm going to look for your series.
