A Circle of Souls by Preetham Grandhi
… At first glance I would not have thought I would enjoy this …and then I opened the book… ~ Sheila
The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. With the murderer on the loose, the police desperately look for any clues to lead to his identity. Meanwhile, a psychiatrist in a nearby hospital is also in a desperate search to find the cause of seven-year-old 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. When these two situations converge, they 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.
I had a little road trip this weekend about a four hour drive from home in which my friend was the driver and I was designated reader. 🙂 Finally I had the time to pick up this book and dive in. And dive in I did as throughout the drive and then later in our hotel room I completed Preetham Grandhi’s book, A Circle of Souls.
While I admit I was a little nervous to what direction this book would take – I was impressed with Preetham’s writing which for a phychological thriller, drew me in to characters I enjoyed getting to know and a story line I fell right into and followed anxiously and excitedly to the very last page.
Most impressive I found was for this type of read, Preetham did not once use any foul language. In two occasions an obsenity is mentioned, but never verbalized. I was impressed that this route was taken as so often this is not the case and books of this nature can be overloaded with language that the authors must feel breathe more life into to their characters.
I have mentioned recently that I have been craving a good mystery/thriller. This book filled that hunger. I encourage readers who enjoy a good mystery/thriller to find your way to a copy of this book and make sure you have set aside several hours as you are not going to want to put it down.
This book was sent to me by the author
I would rate this book PG for some slighty gory scenes
