Two little girls, frozen in black and white. One picture worth killing for.
The Civil Rights Movement is less than a distant memory to Lisa Waldren—it is someone else’s memory altogether, passed on to her through the pages of history. Her life as a federal prosecutor in Boston feels utterly remote from the marches in the South that changed her father’s generation—and the entire nation—forever.
But the truth is, she was there.
When a photograph surfaces showing a blond, four-year-old Lisa playing with an African-American girl at a civil rights march in Fort Worth, Lisa is faced with a jarring revelation: the girls may have been the only witnesses who observed the real killer of civil rights leader Benjamin Gray...and therefore the only ones who can exonerate the death row inmate falsely accused of the murder.
Soon, Lisa finds herself in the dangerous world her father had shielded her from as a child. After some searching, the Waldrens find the other little girl from the photo and, in the process, uncover a conspiracy mere steps away from the likes of Bobby Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and J. Edgar Hoover.
Based on real events and a photograph snapped by author Lis Wiehl’s own G-man father, Snapshot is a remarkably original marriage of mystery and history. Lis Wiehl deftly interweaves threads of race, gender, memory, and the father-daughter relationship in what many will inevitably say is her most mature, poignant novel yet.

Twitter @LisWiehl, facebook.com/pages/LisWiehl.Review:
“Crisp writing and believable characters make Snapshot an absorbing read.” ---CBA Retailers + Resources Magazine (CBA Retailers + Resources Magazine)
“...the writing is strong and the plot is engaging, driven by the desires (both good and evil) of the characters and the reader’s desire to know who killed a man decades before, how it was covered up, and whether an innocent man has been charged and imprisoned. Complete with photos of the author, an interview with her father, and book club questions, the book offers a “snapshot” of the civil rights movement and turbulent times.” ---Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly)
“Wiehl’s latest is captivating and difficult to put down. Racial tensions run high, subtle faith elements unite the historical mysteries and the author’s personal connection to the story adds to the realism. Readers can piece the clues together along with the characters. A secondary storyline about President Kennedy’s cabinet is neatly tied in.” ---RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 star TOP PICK (RT Book Reviews)
“Author Lis Wiehl weaves an intriguing plot inspired by actual events and embellished with colorful characters and plenty of suspense . . . Wiehl infuses the book with ample doses of history, justice, greed, power and the human condition. All in all, SNAPSHOT is a great read.” ---Bookreporter.com (Bookreporter.com)
