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.
Thanks for the blog comment. It's great to get these little bits of information and they go to show just how closely we are related though we may think ourselves one particular nationality. My own mother was Anglo-Indian and met my father when he was serving with the British Army in India in the 1930s so I know what it's like to have a mixed heritage.
Hope your back's feeling better my friend, mine is killing me today. I received the final edits to my Ripper sequel today and have spent the day going through them. There weren't many, and i was amazed ayhow few there were so I've been able to go through the whole thing in a day and approve the final ms. (I must be getting better at this writing lark).
Thanks for letting me be your friend on Crimespace.
I will definitely be getting my copy of "Memoirs of Bear". It sounds like a facinating read. I see you were in several spots in VN. I salute you and thank you for your service, and I'm damn glad you made it home.
I've looked into Mythica's forum, but haven't joined in yet. Since you recommend it so highly, I'll get in there and see what's going on. While my submissions are pending, I have another crime fiction novel I'm completing that I plan to submit there as well. I've always got something going on. Later, Joyce
This is new to me too, what with the 'future' angle to it. It's fun though. I am wordy however, and having a restriction on the word count, well, I'm just writing and I'll trim it down later. Recently, I just wrote my first flash piece at 984 words. Talk about a challenge for me! But this is terrific and I'm hopeful for mine too. Joyce
