The Crowning Circle Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of The Crowning Circle

"Doc" Skeet Cullum, is a forensic psychologist. Jake is an inventor-engineer who owns a company called Solutions, Inc. On Thursdays, they get together at Jake's house to play guitar. On the morning of one of these Thursdays, three violent deaths occur - one a murder without apparent motive. The news interrupts Skeet's proposal to his girlfriend of seven years.

In the next four days, personal and public calamities fall like dominoes as the formerly reclusive Jake sets out to help Skeet, without telling him.
