Is Dad a booklover?

Father’s Day is on June 15th. If he is a booklover and/or John Grisham fan, consider giving him the thought-provoking legal thriller Janeology. If you order a copy in the next seven days, send me an email ( with your order and address info., and I’ll send you a bookmark and signed bookplate to accompany your gift!

Here’s what guys and dads across the country have to say about this new book:

This novel is more than the story of a father and his lawyer struggling to defend an unfair indictment for reckless endangerment arising from the drowning of a child by her mother, Jane. It is a finely-crafted tapestry of family history. – Eldon Youngblood, attorney

I particularly enjoyed the ending which has both surprises and answered many questions while raising other thought-provoking questions of its own. Janeology was a wonderful read that left me enriched for the experience. - David Loewenstein Ph.D. Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and author of For the Love of Rachel: A Father's Story

Janeology gives a new direction to the legal thriller genre. A new ambit, a new scope hitherto unexplored in legal thrillers is the hallmark of this debut novel by Karen Harrington. – Narayan Radhakrishnan, attorney

Janeology penetrates the darkness with characters you care about in a tale that compels you to read from page one to the very end. – Peter Clenott, author of Hunting The King

I went into this book thinking that I had a straightforward mystery in my hands. By the time I was done, I found that Janeology is so much more. This book is a surprise, and a very welcome one. – Robert Rummel-Hudson, author of Schuyler’s Monster: A Father’s Journey With His Wordless Daughter

Janeology is a thoughtful, frank, and engrossing investigation into the potential for anti-social behavior that lurks inside us all, ready to show itself when the breaking point comes, and theorizes that the best defense is strong parenting during the early formative years. A truly satisfying, five-star read. – Art Tirrell, author The Secret Ever KeepsAn unthinkable crime, and perpetrated by the most shocking culprit. This is just the start, the premise for JANEOLOGY, Karen Harrington's debut novel that breaks boundaries in every direction. – Dave Diotalevi, author of Miracle Myx

Janeology is a legal thriller about love and loss, but at its core it is a study of how we may all be haunted by our families. – Dave Donelson, author of Heart of Diamonds

I finished Janeology in two nights, and I'm sorry that I read it so quickly. Since finishing the book, the characters have stayed with me, and I've wondered how their lives played out. – Kenneth Chapman, parole officer (ret.)

Maybe your dad will like it, too.
