Approximation of 'Double Indemnity', or at least the essence (I know the screenwriting credits were shared with Billy Wilder, but it's got Chandler's prints all over it) : Mrs. Dietrichson:"I didn't know I loved you til now." Neff; "Since when?" Mrs Dietrichson: "When I couldn't pull the trigger the second time."

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.
Your fixation on Buffy marks you as a genius in my book. Those who haven't seen it can't possibly get it; those who've seen it and still don't get it. . .they have my deepest compassion ;-)
Glad to meet another Buffophile!
Greetings to a fellow Godfather and Goodfellas fan! I was wondering if you also liked The Sopranos?
Nice to 'meet' you!
Thought you might like to check out my blog, The Power of Jack. Good luck with your writing.
(On Gray man ... they say that a gun fight went right through the middle of a *The Wire* set in Baltimore.)
I can't say I'm a major Dylan fan, although I was around when he had his first hit, and I think his talent as a songwriter is a great one. I'm a blues fan (not knowledgeable, but I do like Buddy Guy and Elmore James), and I also like the music of Dr. John, Alan Toussaint, and Beausoleil...and the rock of the late fifties and sixties...snd the girl groups. I'm in the middle of a mystery set in Portland, hopefully quirky enough to catch someone's interest, and have another in mind for a totally fictional setting...I love police procedurals but seem to do better at writing the quirky stuff. Thanks for the note. Drop by the page anytime :o)
