A great read Aug 8, 2008
Randy Singer is a very accomplished lawyer and writer. Writing from a decidedly Christian perspective, he makes his characters alive and very believable. I loved this book.
Not quite "Directed Verdict", but still an excellent book. Jul 6, 2008
As I write this, there have been eight previous reviews of this book -- four 5 star reviews and four 4 stars. I'm breaking the tie, at least for the moment.
Randy Singer has surpassed Allistair MacLean as being my all-time favorite author with this effort. "Directed Verdict" is my second favorite novel (behind "Piercing the Darkness" by Frank Peretti), and "Dying Declaration" is not that good. But I thought it was better than "Irreparable Harm".
I am dealing with as little of the plot as possible. Why? Because I want you to read this book and I want to do nothing to spoil it! I will mention things you may already know about this book. Nikki Moreno, who was a major supporting cast member in the first two books, is back again. So is Charles Arnold, who had a minor role in "Irreparable Harm". Interestingly enough, there are brief allusions to "Directed Verdict", but none to "Irreparable Harm".
One change I'll mention. The first two novels deal with civil law cases. This one moves into criminal law. Thus, the lawyers and judges of the first two books are not in this one. It will be interesting, though, to see which characters show up in "Self-Incrimination" and Singer's following books. (I am reading them in order.)
To those who are thinking of getting "Dying Declaration", do it! For those who aren't sure, you all need to read this as well.
Edge of your seat legal thriller Jun 6, 2006
This book was an incredible legal thriller! The gist of the book is that a very religious couple is put on trial for neglecting to take their ill son to the hospital in time to save his life due to their religious beliefs which prohibit seeking medical care. The legal team is made up of a charismatic Christian law professor and the special advocate for the children, Nikki Moreno, who appears in other books by Singer. The story flows nicely and definitely get's a rise out of the reader. Singer does an exceptional job of writing entertaining, relatable and memorable characters. He switches focus between all the characters which helps keep the story interesting by adding a few subplots. I truly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next Randy Singer novel.
4-1/2 star legal Christian thriller Jun 4, 2006
Dying Declaration by Randy Singer is another fast paced legal thriller. Singer writes with such authority about the law, he seems to be the Christian John Grisham. In this controversial novel, Thomas and Theresa Hammond, guided by their religion, put off taking their son Joshua to the doctor until it's too late. An ambitious attorney gets her teeth into the case and charges them with murder. Charles Arnold, a law professor, takes on their case and battles the system. Nikki Moreno from Singer's previous two novels is also one of the main characters here, and she seems to be ready to settle down, just a bit. While I was reading this book, I was completely hooked and ready to give it five stars. However, after finishing it, I see several holes in the plot and a few loose threads, so I'd put it more at four stars. We'll split the difference and give it 4-1/2 stars.
Move Over John Grisham Jan 22, 2006
This is the first book that I have read by Randy Singer and what a treat it was.
The author has composed a top-notch legal thriller that ranks with the best of John Grisham. He has some unique and very well developed characters, lots of great courtroom action, and some incredible twists and turns.
The protagonist is a law professor and part-time street preacher who is also the defense attorney in two key cases in this story. Another key figure/hero is a convicted drug dealer who has an encounter with Christ. Needless to say, the characters are very interesting.
This is a novel that is hard to put down. I highly recommend it.
