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 Pat, glad you like the photo.
My knowledge of the US legal system stems mainly from Perry Mason and LA Law, but when I spent some time working for a US lawfirm over here I did find myself recognising a lot of things I’d read about in John Grisham’s The Firm...
Should have commented earlier how much I enjoyed my first Malice this year. It was also the first time I'd ever seen one of those author go rounds. What a great way to promote. Also met many Sisters and especially Guppies. A great organization. A great con.
Gosh, nothing worse than having your computer crash and try to find all those little tidbits you simply added all over the place and never backed up.
Hi all! Can't believe I found you again.
Love and kisses and a few tears.
Patricia - thanks for accepting my invite and for your kind words. My Jason Wade series is starting to get a following. I was in Seattle only last summer and will be back this July for the PNWA Summer Conference
Patricia, I hope your holidays are warm up there in Oregon. I always see your name in my copy of InSinC. I'm the Speakers Bureau Director for SinC/LA. If you are ever in our neck of the woods, come by.
Pat- I'm don't have a pub date yet from St. Martin's, but can't wait to spread the word when I do. I just had a short story out in the SinC NY antholody MURDER NY STYLE, and we had a great launch party at Sisters in Crime.
Hi Pat, The Travel Agent series sounds good to me. I'm also a big fan of Colin Cotterill's - and a good friend as well so I'm glad to see you list him (he's on Crimespace as well.) I also write books set in Asia. I was a journalist in Asia for 11 years. My latest is mostly set in Cambodia and I'm having an event for it at Murder By the Book in Portland, next Tuesday - Nov. 13 - at 6pm, complete with a slide show about Cambodia and some great 1960s-'70s Cambodian pop music.
Thanks, Pat! That post on KILLER HOBBIES was actually by my sister blogger, Camille Minichino. I post on Fridays. But the place she describes in Egypt really does sound wonderful! I wold love to go there. Best, Kathryn
