Reviews - What do customers think about Irreparable Harm?

Very Good, But Not His Best  Nov 4, 2008
'Irreparable Harm' is a suspense novel with a lot of action.

This story features a new lawyer fresh out of law school, Mitchell Taylor. Rather than easing into his on-the-job training as an attorney, he is thrust into a high profile case with precedent setting potential. It includes cloning and forced abortion among its issues.

Singer does a very good job of explaining the complexities of different types of cloning as well as the relevant legal issues while still keeping the story interesting. The part that did not work for me was a romance involving two of the main players seems rushed and superficial. Although this is a good read, it is not Mr. Singer's best.

For those who have never read his work, I would recommend three of his other novels ahead of this one: Directed Verdict, Dying Declaration, and False Witness. He is definitely an author one should get to know. If you like John Grisham and Scott Turow, you'll love Randy Singer.
Fantastic Author  Jan 2, 2008
Randy Singer is masterful at weaving the legal thriller. Not as famous (yet) as John Grisham, but could be well on his way. Anyone who likes legal thrillers, or likes stories that are not afraid to tackle issues from a Christian perspective, should read this book. After reading this one, pick up one of his other books as well.
Short Review - Good Book - Good Story  Dec 12, 2007
As both an author and reader of fiction, I was impressed with "Irreparable Harm". Maybe it is because I have always enjoyed a book that could hold my attention and make me think at the same time. Give this book a try.
The fiction book that I have written main story theme is about ten years in the life of a little girl who was "chosen by God" to be the next Madonna in the second coming of Christ. Yes it has cloning in it.

This Novel Solidifies Singer As My Favorite Novelist  Mar 31, 2007
It took one novel for Randy Singer to tie Alistair MacLean as my favorite novelist. It took two for him to surpass MacLean.

This novel has several common characters with Singer's first novel, "Directed Verdict". Those who were major players in both stories were paralegal Nikki Moreno and judge Cynthia Baker-Kline (aka Ichabod). Two minor characters from the first novel -- attorneys Winn MacKenzie and Bill "The Rock" Davenport -- are main characters in this novel.

One thing is that there is no real formula between the two novels. For one thing, "Directed Verdict"s main character, Brad Carson, was not a Christian at either the beginning or ending of the story, while Mitchell Taylor, in this story, is. Another thing is the trial is the focus of the first novel, taking half the story. There is only a preliminary hearing that starts 2/3 of the way through this one, and it never had the chance to continue.

The theme of this book is ethics, especially in the area of the starting of life. Cloning, abortion, etc. are the focal point here. The issue is handled well. Not unlike Frank Peretti's "Prophet", there is a pro-choice person who sides against the extreme of the abortion on demand side, and the hypocrisy of some in that movement.

Singer is wise in having non-Christian protagonists in the stories, with Nikki Moreno being an excellent example. I also like that Singer has few true villains among his antagonists. Most of the antagonists are allowed to show a human side, so you don't utterly despise them.

There are two ways that authors create suspense in a book. One is to hide as much as possible, so you are surprised at the turns. The other is to set up obvious confrontations early on in the book, and then see how the author gets you out of it. Singer uses the second method very effectively.

I will admit that I liked "Directed Verdict" better, partially due to the theme and partially due to the story crafting. The finale of the book reminded me of a novel by Catherine Coulter, for example. However, I have a hunch that other Singer fans prefer this one.

One reviewer complained that this book was sermonizing and promoting the point of view. I have a hunch that people who are pro-choice feel that way about any book that deals with abortion and has a protagonist opposed to it (same with stem cell research). But those who are open minded will see that there are pro-choice characters, including one of the good guys (technically, good girl), and those that are not good guys (or gals) are not such because they support abortion and/or stem cell research but because of other personality characteristics such as hypocrisy. One of those points out that one should not judge all pro-choice people because of their criminal activity any more than one should judge all pro-lifers because of a handful of abortion clinic bombers. If anything, the book actually creates understanding for those who have differing views on the issue.
Meaty Read  Sep 22, 2006
I enjoyed this novel, but at times I found it hard going. The issue of cloning is complex, and at times I found it difficult to understand certain procedures that were occurring. That said, the story zips along at a good pace, the ensembled cast of characters are colourful, well written, and believable, and are great examples of living out your faith in the real world. One last point, I also like the fact that Randy doesn't allow all the characters featured, who are non-Christians, to become believers. If/when they do, you can trace and understand why they have taken this step. This mirrors the real world, and increases my enjoyment, of this novel. Enjoyable./
