Book Review - "Snapshot"

Book Description from the publisher:

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.

My Review:

I have been looking forward to a new book from Lis Wiehl as I have enjoyed her previous novels so much!  "Snapshot" was an exciting and touching read to start out this new year with!  This novel is filled with so much historical detail and also personal details as the author is a little girl in the photograph this story is based on. The legal system plays such a large role in Lis' story and I find this fascinating and also with all the twists and turns, Lis takes the reader on quite an unforgettable journey.  Any fan of Lis' previous novels will not want to miss out on this one!
