By Reason of Insanity

By Reason of Insanity by Randy Singer ~~ 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.

Quinn Newberg, a Vegas lawyer, used to defend white collar crimes. Until someone dear to him was accused of murder. Now he's fighting for the insanity defense to get his client off. In the middle of this trial he's brought into the case of Cat O'Rourke - a newspaper reporter who was covering Quinn's trial. Now Cat is on trial for her life. While covering a another story, not only does Cat get fed confidential information, but she also starts having visions of the murder. Unfortunately the police think she is the culpit and arrest her for the murder. Is Cat a murderer, insane or a damn good actress or did she not even do it??? There are so many twists and turns in this story that you'll never see the end coming at you. A
