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.

Kevin - As a former reporter, I love your post - especially your caution not to miscontrue membership as friendship. Made me smile.
Congrats on your activities.
Love the Edgar thing.

Promise not to try to hustle you for a review.

Congrats on the Edgar, even if it's fallen into the Amazon bargain basement!

Nice "meeting" you!

Cheryl, who writes romances but always with dead bodies thrown in *LOL*

Welcome! I am newt, slithering from the shallow end of the gene pool, into the open ocean. Sharks are likely to eat me before the salt water kills me, but who wants a quiet life?

Kevin, what happened? You're so ... monochrome! (well, except for the mustard background).

I like the crew cut, though. Makes you look a little older, but still distinguished. ;)

Thanks, Kevin! Art photographer and noir disciple Jim Ferreira shot all my photos. I met Jim through SF's Noir City film festival (well-worth coming down here for, btw).

Are you going to Bouchercon? We can dish over swanky themes songs and Douglas Sirk while sipping a cocktail! :)

Love New Orleans. Graduated from Tulane, as did the protag of 13 DAYS. % of revenues from this first book going to Tulane/NO rebuilding fund. Hope your relocation to Portland has proceeded as you wished it to. Any plans to return to New Orleans?

Hi Kevin,
Nice to meet you! Wow, congrats on the Edgar nod! Yeah, I'm cluless as to the leverage thing, too.
