A Circle of Souls

From The Back Cover:

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-ole Naya Hastings's 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 judgement, Leia explores the clues in Naya's crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.

My Review:
I am so glad that Preetham Grandhi asked me to review A Circle of Souls. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a great read. Everything about this book was just right. This psychological thriller pulled me in from the very beginning. Grandhi weaves a very intense tale.
I was unable to figure out who did it until Grandhi reveled all. The ending was an OMG ending. I kept saying OMG until everything was resolved.
This book is a definite read. Just don't read this book across from a boat house like I did. 4.5 stars. Awesome read.
