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 Lauren. Your novel is just the kind I like to read. My most recent novel, Blue Heron Marsh, is the first of a continuing Webb Sawyer mystery series. Hope you will check out my Crimespace page and website and see what I'm up to.
Thank you all for the comments about my dog, Ziggy. He's an Australian shepherd and look for him in my third book, which I am currently editing. While he is really cute and SO loveable--he's a really BAD dog!
Okay, I finally managed to find time to add A Reunion to Die For to my page. I don't know how you manage to keep up with it all. I still need to update my website with my upcoming book signings and before that, I need to cook dinner so my family won't faint! Augh!
