During a broadcast, an anchorwoman is murdered on the set by a criminal she exposed. Her widowed husband files a lawsuit against the company that manufactured the gun used in the murder when he learns that it was sold illegally. Two young lawyers, Jason Noble and Kelly Starling, take opposing sides on the case, but realize that the case is far more complicated, deep, and even personal than they couldve possibly expected.
The plot gets more complex and suspenseful with every chapter (there are ninety-five, including the epilogue, if that says anything). Flashbacks give insight into why the characters are the way they are, and subplots and side stories illuminate the main plot and explore other themes of Christian life, including that of Mercy triumphs over judgment(James 2:13). Singer creates a great story and keeps it going until the end. And he does it all without the annoying romance subplots that many suspense books have.
Singer is a real trial attorney, so he knows what hes talking about. He knows how the system works, how people act and talk, and the things that go on behind the scenes, which makes this book much more authentic and believable. He can write from both sides of the line and makes both of the opposing arguments seem completely true. All of the characters are unique and relatable, though flawed in some way. Through the two main characters, Noble and Starling, Singer repeats the question asked in Mark 8:36: What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? Or in other words, Whats the point of gaining fortune and fame by winning the case if you have to lie to yourself and everybody and give up on your morals?
Theres much more to the book than is possible to describe in a review, so I would encourage anyone to read Randy Singers The Justice Game. Personally, Im not a fan of the genre, but if all of Singers books are like this one, Im out to read his entire collection. Matt Maine, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
