In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, two American missionaries are targeted by the infamous religious police-the Muttawa. The man is tortured and killed; his wife arrested on trumped-up charges before being deported to the U.S.
Compelled by the injustice of her plight, young attorney Brad Carson files an unprecedented civil rights suit against Saudi Arabia and the ruthless head of the Muttawa. But the suit unleashes powerful forces that will stop at nothing to vindicate the Arabian kingdom. Witnesses are intimidated and some disappear, jurors are bribed, and a member of Brad's own team may be attempting to sabotage the case.

SheilaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great book!!December 5, 2012SheilaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the first book I have read by Randy Singer, and I must say it was a great one! It had me guessing right up to the end. I am often a picky reader looking for complex plot lines and substance to a book to keep me engaged. This book did not disappoint on any of these fronts.
In this day and age when persecution of Christians is hardly even thought of in the US, this book makes one sit up and notice...persecution is very real in the world and many countries make a person choose between death and or their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior. This book focuses on the legal battle for justice for one woman and her family who encountered such persecution. What unfolds is certainly incredible. A great read and highly recommended!

BevKWIAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5DIRECTED VERDICT by Randy SingerJanuary 27, 2012BevKWIAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Just finished the eBook and my overall conclusion is that I did enjoy the book; my main problem was when the author jumped from scene to scene/country to country/issue to issue and sometimes I felt 'lost' in it. Perhaps it wouldn't have been so difficult in a paper copy? But in this I began to think some of the information was unnecessary, even though it did finally all fit together.
I was intrigued by the title; didn't know there was such a thing, and I have read a LOT of 'legal thrillers'. With the current status of the court system and what is happening overseas, this book is very timely, and describes what goes on, very explicitly. I did enjoy that. What I didn't like was a couple of the characters... while they of course were a part of the story, I wanted to ignore or skip them! i.e., Bella... the assistant to the attorney. I think she would have been fired in real life.
I received this eBook free from CBD and I would recommend it 100%.
Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Another great thriller by Randy SingerMay 7, 2011Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I finished my first book by Randy Singer, I knew I was hooked, and Directed Verdict confirmed that response. This was another legal page-turner with lots of twists and turns, keeping me unable to decide who were the "good guys" and who were the "bad guys" up to the very end.
Attorney Brad Carson files a lawsuit against Saudi Arabia and the head of that nation's "religious police" and finds his team watched closely by individuals, organizations, and nations on opposite sides of the world. Sarah Reed experienced horrendous persecution, including the brutal murder of her husband, at the hands of the Muttawa while the couple served as underground missionaries in Saudi Arabia. She reluctantly enters the legal process as a means of clearing the trumped-up drug allegations against her husband and recovering the life insurance she needs to raise her two children.
As Brad, Nikki Moreno (a paralegal with quesitonable ethics), Leslie Connors (an ambitious law student), and others on the team move forward with the case, it appears they might be in over their heads. Careers and even lives appear to be on the line as deception and danger pop up at every turn, leaving Brad unsure of who he can trust and what pieces he can salvage from his crumbling case and personal feelings.
Lessons of love, faith, and trust are woven throughout this intriguing story. Randy Singer's personal faith and first-hand knowledge of the legal system bring a valuable authenticity to his writing. I'm anxious to see what he has to offer next.
