New York Detective Frank Reilly is a man on a mission. After having lost his beloved wife to cancer, he is drawn back from the brink of an emotional abyss by the murder of a teenage girl who looks just like her. With nothing else left to assuage his guilt, he throws himself into the investigation with every ounce of passion still left inside him. But with little evidence to go on, the case quickly grows cold.

When another victim is killed in exactly the same manner over five hundred miles away, Reilly knows that he must act immediately. Going against the advice of his superiors, he flies to North Carolina to continue his hunt for the sadistic killer. Reilly knows that his only hope of success is to convince the Sheriff of Camden County that each of their crimes is connected. To his relief, Claire Stiles immediately recognizes the undeniable similarities between them both. Fueled by their furious and unrelenting desire to find the murderer, they work together day and night. Unexpectedly, however, they also find themselves growing closer in the process. This new-found friendship helps Reilly begin to heal his hidden wounds, yet it also causes Claire’s dark and violent past to be once again dragged into the light.

With the help of two FBI profilers, Claire and Reilly leave no stone unturned in their hunt for the serial killer. In order to understand what tenuous link binds all of the victims together, they end up having to delve into the nearly-forgotten details of an unsolved murder from over a decade ago. Yet when another girl is abducted, Claire and Reilly must also put their own lives on the line in order to catch the madman; before it’s too late.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This is a fantastic read. Not a short read, And Still, She Wept, not only has a great title, but is a gripping read. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone. Mystery/Thriller is not my preferred genre (bought it for the great title), but I could not put this book down. The characters are so interesting, the story so sad and intense, the ramifications so horrific, the timelines so tight that this book captures you from the start.

*******

I think “And Still, She Wept” is an outstanding read both from the perspective of a crime novel and from the perspective of a human interest novel. Definitely a 5-star book; I highly recommend it.

*******

This novel is beautifully written. From the beginning, it is apparent the author loves language and works to craft the most accurate description possible. The reader comes to more than just care about the characters inhabiting this book. They become so incredibly real that after finishing it the characters stay with you. It is obvious the author has done an incredible amount of research for this book. Her descriptions of forensic techniques and autopsies are impeccable.

*******

What a great book!!! This was my first foray into the writing skills of T.C. Barnes, and based on this experience I will most definitely be on the look out for more of this author’s work.

*******

This has to be one of the best books I’ve read on kindle so far. The ending was very tense and exciting, it is well written and so absorbing I was sorry to finish it. A 10 star read. Well done T.C. Barnes.

About The Author


A little about me… Well, my mother is a Chemist and my father is an Accountant, so I’m still not quite sure just where my language abilities/proclivities even come from. But falling into writing as a career, was like falling into a pair of warm, welcoming arms. In fact, all of my earliest memories involve either reading, writing, or imagining characters and stories, for hour upon hour, every single day of my life.

I have a BA in English with a Minor in Sociology, and have taken Master’s classes in Special Education. I spent 8 years licensed as an Educator, and 6 years licensed as an Infant/Toddler Developmental Specialist. Most of my time in the public school system involved working with children with Autism (which holds a very special place in my heart), and also working with kids with severe disabilities – probably the most rewarding job on the planet. Before that, I worked in a Maximum Security Male Prison for 2 years – “teaching” inmates that were rapists, gang-bangers, and murderers. It was one of the best-worst jobs I’ve ever had. It taught me that some people just aren’t redeemable – but then again, some are.

I hope that you enjoy my books; reading them, maybe discussing them, and perhaps hopefully even taking a piece of them with you once in a while. I am always available to my readers for any questions, or if you’d simply like to discuss my work. My author contact is tcbarnesbooks@rocketmail.com. I’ve even actually made a few special and valued friends simply through communications about my work on Shelfari, and via my author email.

Thank you so much for reading my book(s), and for making my little ‘worlds’, even temporarily, a tiny part of yours. It is quite a gratifying thing. Every day I am amazed that people are interested in reading what it is that I have to say.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – T.C. Barnes and ENT appreciate it.
