Thereís nothing as convicting as words that threaten your daughterís life. You want your kid back? Do just as I say. You do not know who I am. But Iíve studied you, you and your family. Iíve been watching you. Youíve been using people. Because youíre greedy. Now, itís payback time. Terrifying for any parent, these words are especially grim for Senator Bruce Grable, whose guilt may be the reason his five-year-old daughter, Zoe, has disappeared.

Or is it because of his wife, whose words make her sound more the victim than their daughter? Or their nanny, whose silence harbors her own secrets? One thing is for sure: The words hold the clues to finding Zoe alive. And itís up to Special Agent Mackenzie Graham, a forensic psycholinguist, and FBI agent John Crowfeather to decode the messages in time.

After reading your posting, it sounds like I've been missing
out on some great reading!! I'll have to keep my eyes
peeled for your books, and put them on my TBR list for this
Summer!! Your latest book DOES sound like a real page
turner, especially due to the fact that my Dad served in
WWII, sending out Morse Code messages to the troops, and was
nearly killed during his term of service!! This book would
hold special meaning to me!! Congratulations on your latest
book, and I'll be sure to look for it, as well as your other

Thank you, Peggy! I can't imagine sending Morse Code under battle conditions--
I had to learn it to earn my Ham Radio license. It takes a lot of concentration,
even sitting in your living room!
I hope you enjoy Words and my other books. My Website, lindajwhite.com, has
more information.

This does sound like a really interesting book! I double majored in English
and Spanish in college and I took a linguistics course too. I will definitely
have this book on my To Be Read List. Oh, I also hung out with a group of
girls who were getting their Ph.D's (sic) in Psychology.
Shelley Maier 2:37pm June 16, 2014)

Sounds interesting. If I win, I write reviews.
Jane Squires 4:09pm June 16, 2014)

I love FBI thrillers and profilers!!! It is so fascinating!
Wish I had a friend that did that or better yet, me. Love
Vicki Hancock 6:44pm June 16, 2014)

I will probably cry while reading this book.
Martha Crutchfield 1:27am June 17, 2014)

I love FBI thrillers.
Pam Howell 8:37am June 17, 2014)

A captivating book and a thought provoking post.
Sharon Berger 11:58am June 17, 2014)

This book sounds fascinating. Also, I found the information interesting about body language and certain phrases used when trying to conceal information. I need to remember some of this the next time a politician is declaring his innocence.
Anna Speed 1:29pm June 17, 2014)

This sounds really good!
Denise Austin 6:27pm June 17, 2014)

What an exciting book! Interesting post about the importance of analyzing language in criminal investigations. Thanks for sharing.
Bonnie H 9:45pm June 17, 2014)

Wow, Congrats on your new book: WORDS OF CONVICTION. I love
the book cover too! Your FBI thriller sounds like a fantastic
book. I would love to win and read your new book in 2014.
Thank You very much. Cecilia CECE
