Self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet is thrilled to showcase the thrilling mystery novel “Lost Causes: Silent Scream” by Donna J. Thompson at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 22 to 23, 2023, at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA.

In “Lost Causes,” readers follow investigator Karl Larkin as he quickly dismisses the gorgeous psychologist Casey West’s bizarre claim about the asylum where she works. Karl Larkin has worked in Springfield for twenty years and has never had a single complaint against Lakeview. When Trudy Madison, a nurse and friend of Casey’s, is murdered and the management’s story doesn’t add up, Detective Larkin begins to wonder if Casey is telling the truth.

Lakeview’s man in charge, Jerry Connors, has influential friends, so he uses them to obstruct the detective’s investigations. The next thing they know, Casey is pleading with Larkin to let her be his spy inside the building. Will she help him solve the case, or will she suffer the same fate as her friend?

Donna J. Thompson captivates readers just as much as the first novel with this second novel of hers, and they are left wondering until the very end why the characters in the book are acting the way they are.
