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.

Film noir is really coming back. Film makers, unfortunately, are redoing some greats in color with today's actors and ruining them!
I have CDs of the old one's that I found at - gulp - Best Buy - in addition to the Marc Bros. and Chaplin.
My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my page here on crimespace.

I just sent a request to be added as a friend--who can resist Herbert Marshal? A charmer, Herbert, despite what he did to Dietrich in Blonde Venus (but then, she wouldn't have wound up in the white tux if he hadn't) and his political machinations in Foreign Correspondent.

Thanks, Craig!

My favorite Blackadder quote: "Believe me,Baldric, an eternity in the company of Beelzebub and all his hellish minions will be as nothing compared to five minutes alone with me...and this pencil."

Thanks for clarifying, Craig. The favs you mention are all fine writers . . . I was just wondering about their female "counterparts."

And, no, I'm NOT one of them . . .

So, um, Craig,
Do you read women writers at all?

Of course, I CLAUDIUS is a magnificent book.

F is for Fake and Rex Stout. Very Cool!

Cool. I've got a few days off, and just about done with my current read, so I think I'll give I, Claudius a go.

This is a pretty cool place. I've never read I, CLAUDIUS, but since you are a man of discerning taste...
