Snapshot By Lis Wiehl A REVIEW

Two little girls, frozen in black and white. One picture worth killing for.

Federal prosecutor Lisa Waldren’s estranged father wants her to investigate a cold case from his FBI days. Lisa nearly refuses, even though a wrongly convicted man faces execution for murder. Then her father reveals a photograph: a little white girl playing alongside a little black girl at a rally in 1965 where the shooting of a civil rights leader took place. She recognizes herself in the photo.

She was there.

Lisa agrees to help, resolved to boldly seek answers she’s skirted for decades. What she discovers are layers of deception, both personal and professional, reaching as high as the head of the FBI. Possibly even the president.

And though Lisa and the other girl may have escaped the 1965 shooting physically unharmed, her little friend, now grown, bears the scars of it. All because of the color of her skin. As Lisa and her father get closer to the truth, the real killer turns the hunt around.

  Snapshot by Lis Wiehl is an excellent Mystery/Suspense novel. Lis’s dad gave her of photograph of her and another little girl at Civil Rights Movement. So Lis took that photograph and made a fictional story out of it. What an amazing idea to tell a story from a real photograph. What a wonderful job she did.
  This story is also a story of the relationships between father/daughter and man/woman. I love the characters and the scenes. Even the evil characters are quite intriguing. You will be captivated as the plot unwinds.
   I like how everything and most departments covered up the real mystery in this case.  Even the FBI and why they did it.  Lis Wiehl is an excellent author and she outdid herself in this novel. It is full of suspense, mystery, relationships and love.  The ending was superb and I highly recommend this fantastic book.
