Publisher's Description

After a series of kidnappings and murders in Virginia Beach, newspaper reporter Catherine O'Rourke experiences disturbing dreams that detail each crime. In an effort to aid the investigation, she shares them with her confidential source—a detective working on the case. Catherine's intimate knowledge of the crimes immediately makes her a prime suspect. When scientific evidence corroborates her guilt, she's arrested and charged with murder. As she begins to doubt her own innocence, Catherine turns to Las Vegas lawyer Quinn Newberg, a high-priced specialist in the insanity defense. Quinn believes in justice, Vegas-style. But he doesn't believe in the supernatural, or that Catherine's dreams are anything other than the result of a fractured personality disorder. Who can understand the human mind? Quinn knows that insanity cases are unpredictable, but nothing had prepared him for this! To win, or even survive, Quinn will need more than his famed legal maneuvering and biting skepticism. On this case, he needs a miracle.

Randy Singer engages readers on a page turning journey from preemptive law to astounding grace in By Reason of Insanity. Catherine O’Rourke, a Virginia Beach reporter, after going to the police to share her vision insights on a horrendous crime, finds herself placed behind bars as the prime suspect. As Catherine is going through the trial process, she is persuaded to plead not guilty by reason of insanity, which causes her to question her innocence and whether or not she was capable of committing the crimes.

This book has a strong plot structure and does not stray away from the beginning incidents. The writing is clear, with a good blend of dialogue and description. The characters are well rounded and believable. This book delivers as a suspense novel. It provides surprises, but nothing ridiculous or unrealistic. In fact, the entire book is very satisfying from a literary perspective. Although the writing is more for the young adult level and beyond, this book is recommended to anyone who likes legal thrillers or suspense novels with surprise endings. -- Timothy J. Steece, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Publisher's Weekly

Inspirational suspense novelist Singer (Directed Verdict) hooks readers from the opening courtroom scene of this tasty thriller, then spurs them through a fast trot across a storyline that just keeps delivering. Catherine O’Rourke is a seasoned reporter who covers trials for Norfolk, Virginia’s The Tidewater Times. The latest sexual abuse case she covers hits a little too close to home, and she has a series of disturbing “visions” that suggest first-hand details of the crimes. Soon she finds herself on trial as the “Avenger,” a Bible-quoting serial killer. Are her visions spiritual? Or does she have a split personality? She’s unsure of her innocence or guilt—and so are her lawyers, including the likeable high-rolling Vegas attorney, Quinn Newberg, who is famous for his insanity defenses. Singer tosses out plot twists with abandon, shattering readers’ assumptions but rarely straining their credulity. The characters’ lives unpeel like onions, with layers of interesting revelations. Christian faith plays a role in the “visions” but never feels forced. Smooth point of view changes, snappy dialogue, interesting details and unexpected humor enrich the storyline. Like the best suspense novels, the character development is sophisticated enough that readers won’t know the villain’s identity until the final pages. (May) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
