But the truth is, she was there. When a photograph surfaces showing a blond, four-year-old Lisa playing with an African-American girl at a civil rights march in Fort Worth, Lisa is faced with a jarring revelation: the girls may have been the only witnesses who observed the real killer of civil rights leader Benjamin Gray...and therefore the only ones who can exonerate the death row inmate falsely accused of the murder.
Soon, Lisa finds herself in the dangerous world her father had shielded her from as a child. After some searching, the Waldrens find the other little girl from the photo and, in the process, uncover conspiracy mere steps away from the likes of Bobby Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and J. Edgar Hoover. Based on real events and a photograph snapped by author Lis Wiehl’s own G-man father, Snapshot is a remarkably original marriage of mystery and history.

What an accurate depiction of the world!
This is a fantastic story of what seems to be a world-wide deep-seated problem of prejudice! I live in South Africa, and was brought up in a Christian home that taught us to see the best in everybody, whether they were black, white, brown, or green with pink spots! We played with other races and never thought any less of them because of their race, but after 1994, I was shocked to hear exactly what was going on under our noses without us having a clue! But through your book, I have seen that it was as rife in America, and know Australia with the Aboriginies, New Zealand with the Mauries (pls 'scuse spelling), as much as here, but likewise there were many "white" people in each of these countries who did not support it. Oh for the day when we see Jesus face to Face, where prejudice of any kind will not even be in our thoughts, and where there will be no darkness of any kind!
