JULIE KRAMER

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22; 7 PM @ The Greene
JULIE KRAMER
will introduce her new novel, Shunning Sarah. It centers on a clash of cultures: flashy TV news versus a reclusive Amish community. The story involves a homicide victim who can’t be identified without the help of a forensic artist. When she is finally recognized as Sarah Yoder, a young Amish woman, her family objects to the police sketch of her face being publicized by the media because of the biblical ban on graven images. But when TV reporter Riley Spartz finds a clue the cops miss, she uncovers a dark web of fraud and deception—driven by motives as old as the Bible: sex and money.
James Patterson has this to say about the book: “Remember Witness – that truly thrilling movie with Harrison Ford in his heyday? Shunning Sarah is an even better suspense story.”

Julie Kramer has also written Stalking Susan, Missing Mark, Silencing Sam, and Killing Kate.
