Well-written suspense from a lawyer's viewpoint.
Because of their belief in faith-healing Thomas and Therese Hammond take their son to the hospital too late to save his life. They are accused of murder. Charles Arnold, a be-bopping, street- preaching lawyer takes their case. The lives of many in the legal profession come into the story. The Hammonds' story, partly told from the viewpoint of their 5-year-old son, was compelling and I wished more of the book had been dedicated to their story. Nikki got involved in unethical, illegal activities, flirted constantly, dressed seductively, and I couldn't see why Charles would be interested in her. Still the book was very well written, a real page-turner. It's my first Randy Singer book, but it won't be my last.

Even better than my HIGH EXPECTATIONS
This book is so well written. So terrifically interesting. I usually read books and then resell or trade them - but not this one. I will keep it to loan to others with a very high recommendation. I cannot imagine anyone not enjoying it. I agree with another reviewer that it definitely should be made into a movie. The dialogue is so much fun - I am always reading parts aloud to my husband. The arguments by the two lawyers are just amazing! Nikki Moreno is so much fun to read about - an added bonus. If you like lawyer books, you will love this book. I have read others by Randy Singer and really liked them but this is the best so far.

I hope Dying Declaration will be made into a movie. The characters are well developed, the plot is intricate and well woven, and the ending is a complete surprise. I'd like to see the same characters in more of his books. I'm a huge fan of Randy Singer now. This is the only book I've read of his so far, but I plan to get more. He has been compared to John Grisham, but I would say he is even better!
