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.
