Greenwich, CT, August 24, 2015 – L. T. Graham’s latest thriller, The Blue Journal (Seventh Street Books, 01/06/15), is a sexy, solid mystery, best described by WordPress.com as “…A dark, sexy look at murder and entitled attitudes in affluent suburbia.”
Full of unexpected twists and turns, The Blue Journal shocks readers with an ending they could never have anticipated. No wonder critics are calling it “the perfect read for a summer day” – once you start it you’re hooked! A sizzling, intricate blend of marriage, infidelity and divorce and fueling the fire is a private journal titled Sexual Rites!
When Elizabeth Knoebel is found dead of a gunshot wound, the investigation is turned over to Lieutenant Anthony Walker. Formerly a New York City cop, Walker is a man with his own issues who now serves on the police force of an affluent community in Fairfield County, Connecticut. He lives among the privileged gentry, where he understands that appearances are often far removed from reality.
As Walker untangles the steamy secrets of Elizabeth’s memoir, the threads begin to converge on her psychotherapist. He becomes convinced that Elizabeth’s killer is another of Randi Conway’s patients. But which one?
L. T. Graham turns out to be the highly successful suspense writer Jeffrey Stephens, author of the best-selling Jordan Sandor series, Targets of Deception, Targets of Opportunity and Targets of Revenge. Graham is currently at work on the next Detective Anthony Walker novel.

Publishers Weekly: “Gripping….the action builds to an exciting and unexpected conclusion.”
John A. Connell, The Big Thrill: The author “delves deep into the psyche of the wealthy enclave, exposing lives and marriages tattered and twisted by deceit and lies, arrogance and insecurity. THE BLUE JOURNAL is a riveting and unrelenting look into the darker foibles of the human heart.”
Library Journal: “A crackerjack noir tale featuring a sad man trying to come to terms with a new life.”
Jon Land, USA Today, bestselling author of Strong Darkness: “…A taut, twisty, and terrific psychological thriller about what happens when the curtain is pulled back on affluent suburbia. Featuring a terrific hero who’s like Robert Parker’s Jesse Stone on steroids, it will leave you closing the blinds even while wondering if anyone is trying to peek through them. Brilliantly conceived and wondrously timely.”
Manhattan with a Twist: “The least expected person is the one responsible for the murder and it seems that L.T. Graham has pulled the curtain over all of our eyes. I love endings like that because just when you think that everything is resolved you turn around and are surprised.”
The Portsmouth Review: “This is a perfect mix of love gone wrong and suspenseful mystery.”
Crystal’s Many Reviewers.com: “This is the PERFECT read for a summer day with nothing else to do – because you won’t want to put it down!”
