Review:

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.
