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 Geoffrey - Cheers for the invite, I'm much obliged. Sounds like a fascinating career there already, even without becoming a writer ... Marlow Productions, eh? You're right, the Chandler thing is a no-brainer ... any man who can make a statement like that is a friend for life. Cheers, Dec
Unfortunately City went out of production about a year ago afer over 100 episodes, but A&E still runs it and so does the Biography Channel. We have a new mystery show coming on Oxygen in October called Captured! (It'll run after Snapped). Check it out!
Nice to meet you, Geoffrey! I LOVE City Confidential and have turned all my relatives on to it, too! One of my high school friends, Linda Bloodworth Thomason, is a TV writer/producer but I haven't seen her in awhile. I love Dominick Dunne's show, too.
