I’m excited to announce that my new thriller, PRAY FOR THE GIRL, will be launched at Longfellow Books, Tuesday, April 30th at 7:00 pm. I hope you can stop by and pick up a signed copy, and say hello. I’ll be speaking, reading an excerpt, and signing books afterward. There might be cake too.
The reviews for PRAY FOR THE GIRL have been fantastic thus far. Here’s an excerpt from the review by Booklist. “ . . .a solid read that poses tough questions about how to help downtrodden towns undergoing social upheaval, a close look at tough personal transformations, and a mystery with a surprising solution.”
The Schleichler Spin says, “In Lucy Abbott, Souza has created an unforgettable character who is tortured, complex, and tough as nails. Her PTSD only scratches the surface of what she’s been through and amplifies the conflicts she’s had with her own identity all her life. . .Through the unforgettable character of Lucy Abbott, Souza is able to turn many of the genre’s clichés on their heads and explore issues of modern warfare, identity politics, and small-town decay while weaving a smoldering commentary on the American Dream.”
”Souza’s new domestic thriller is genre-defining tour-de-force.” Steve Konkoly, internationally bestselling author of THE RESCUE.
“A must-read.” Julia Specner-Fleming, New York Times bestselling author of THROUGH THE EVIL DAYS
”In Lucy Abbott, Jose Souza has created a character like no other.” John Greco, author of BITTER ENDS
In addition, I’ll be conducting an interview on the radio show The Law Business Insider where I’ll be talking about PRAY FOR THE GIRL and my life as a writer. Hope you can check it out. https://lbishow.com
