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 invite, glad to come aboard. Tess Gerritsen is one of my personal favourites and she's been good enough to send me good wishes for the success of my Jack the ripper novel due out next year. A superb lady!

Hi, and thanks for the invite. I wish I could attend the conference, but I'll be in Asia, working on my next book, from January to June. I miss so many interesting activities because of this schedule, but it's the only way I really know how to work.
But best of luck with the 10th annual meeting.
Thanks for the heads-up, sounds like fun. The Southerners can take solace in the fact that it is only cold if you go outside! So, just make the tough Northerners do all the coffee and doughnut runs, and expect to be cocooned by the closeness that accompanies a good murder shared. Hope to see you at my site! I'm reviewing pretty fast, going through almost 49 years of unwritten thoughts. Almost everything is just by memory at this stage, so I call them impressionistic reviews. I'm not doing much negative reviewing (unless I can balance it with other good work by the same author). I'd rather lead towards than deflect away. Jim
I don't think I could ever stand being in Chicago in February. When the temperature dips below 80, I dig out my coat. If the temperature gets down to 70, we turn on the heat. Actually, we leave the A/C on year round. We wear shorts year round. Maybe one of two days of the year, we might have to put on long pants and a pair of socks. Thankfully, those days are few and far in between. But I really do HATE the hurricanes. That's the only downside to living down here (other than the HIGH property insurance rates).
