The mid-60s were a turbulent time. The JFK assassination, Robert Kennedy’s death a year or two later, and the civil rights movement all contributed to a coming change to American culture. And in that era a murder takes place in the midst of a civil rights parade - a murder witnessed by two four year old girls and a father. Now, the man convicted of the crime asks the father, a retired FBI agent, for help proving his innocence, even as the date for his death sentence has been set.

As they begin to track the details, old hurts, old betrayals, and old adversaries seem ready to stand in the way. Before the truth could be found, the daughter and the father had to find a way to work through the pain they had felt years before when her father and mother had divorced. Forgiveness needed to be offered - so the two could work together to arrive at the facts that would free Leonard Dubois for a crime he did not commit.

The story and writing held my interest from beginning to end - I could not put it down. As I passed the 80% mark in my reading, I was determined to not go to bed until I reached the end of the story. The book becomes all the more meaningful as the author fills in her and her dad’s back stories - she a retired federal prosecutor; he a retired FBI agent that worked along with the Warren Commission to explore the facts behind the JFK assassination. I cannot wait to see a paper copy of the book to see the snapshots (not included in my preview copy) that helped Lis Wiehl pull together a believable story that is worth the time spent reading from cover to cover.

Snapshot by Lis Wiehl is an intriguing mystery based around some true events and an actual picture Wiehl's FBI agent father took of her as a child. The story blends the drama of the Civil Rights movement with a modern day murder mystery. Protagonist Lisa Waldren is now a federal prosecutor in Boston and barely remembers the Civil Rights era, but finds herself thrust back into the past when she realizes she and the girl she was photographed with may have been the only witnesses to a murder - and the murderer doesn't want them to talk again, ever.

I requested this book with some trepidation as I'm not usually too into reading about the 60s and the Civil Rights movement (I generally prefer more contemporary fiction), but I do love a good murder mystery/suspense novel, so I decided to give it a try. I wasn't disappointed. I was hooked in within the first couple chapters, and couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. I am anxious to read more of Lis Wiehl's books now - she is a great mystery/suspense author. Also, the fact that it was based on some actual events made it even more interesting. I definitely recommend this book if you like mystery and suspense.

I received a copy of this book from BookSneeze in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Format: Hardcover
Lisa Waldren is a middle-age, widowed federal prosecutor living in Boston. She has been estranged from her father for many years. He is now retired from the FBI and calls her out of the blue to help him with an old case. The man convicted of killing a civil rights proponent is on death row in a Texas prison and has been given an execution date. Her father is convinced that the man is not guilty. Why has her father kept silent for almost 50 years? Why try to do anything for this man at this late date? Lisa hasn’t had much of a relationship with her father after her high school years and even then he was done a lot with his FBI job. Now she has a chance to reconnect with her father maybe, but does she really want that? He has never been there for her when she needed him, so why should she have hope that this will amount to a renewed relationship? He is her father and she decides to help him.
Lisa flies to Texas to go over the case with her father. She soon realizes that indeed the wrong man has been convicted, but who is the real murderer and how can they find proof after almost 50 years? She and her dad begin investigating and ruffle the wrong person’s feathers. They realize they are being followed. Lisa has her hotel room searched and her home in Boston broken in to. The past reaches out to tell the future, and a mystery is solved. At what cost? Should the past remain in the past?
This is just a fascinating look back at a small portion of an event during the civil rights movement in 1965. Although fictitious, there are several factual names and events included in the story, which makes it all the more interesting.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Katherine Scott Jones on February 17, 2014
Format: Hardcover
Despite its compelling historical basis and smart, intricate plotting, Snapshot was one of those novels that failed to really capture me. It’s one of those cases where I wish I liked it more than I did because it really has so much going for it: great premise, interesting characters, a mystery that gets more mysterious as the story progresses. If you were to ask me for specifics, I’d say that sometimes the dialog felt a bit stiff, and the narrative lacked a certain, elusive gravitas that I find persuasive. I did, however, appreciate the nuanced portrayal broken family relationships–and the effect this had on many of the characters’ choices–as well as its layered themes of hope, reconciliation and forgiveness.

Thanks to Thomas Nelson for providing me a free copy to review. All opinions are mine.
