The Blue Journal: An Explosive Blend Of Suspense, Intrigue And Erotica
Greenwich, CT, January 14, 2015 – Critics agree The Blue Journal (Seventh Street Books, 01/06/15), by L.T. Graham, is a sexy, solid mystery. Kindling the blaze is marriage, infidelity and divorce; 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 is the pen name of a New England-based, highly successful suspense writer who is the author of several novels. 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.”
Excerpts of Five-Star Reviews on Amazon.com:
“I found this tale of familiar characters gripping from start to finish. The deception/ dishonesty/mystery surrounding the string of events intertwined amongst several married couples made for a terrific read. Provocative characters, fast paced storytelling, and a healthy dose of erotic encounters combine to make this a first class story / head and shoulders above similar genre works. Hoping there is more from LT Graham and another tale of Detective Walker.”
“…A captivating blend of suspense and erotica. This page-turner is a spot-on examination of intimate lives and suburban morality wrapped inside a police procedural thriller. And I guarantee that the resolution will blow you away!”
“What a fantastic read, I couldn’t put it down. A detective mystery of the best kind, intrigue, sex, characters you love and hate, and an exciting conclusion. I hope we hear more from this author.”
