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.

I really enjoy legal/court room fiction but this book was too much. I did not find it interesting at all, the court room scenes seemed to repeat them self, as did the main characters perdicaments and dialogue. I figured out who one of the killers were in the first 25 chapters (the books total is 100) and after that just lost interest. I skipped a good portion of the middle and once I got to the part where the killers were revealed it was anticlimactic. Also, there is almost a whole chapter speaking about the credibility of Allison DuBois, whom
I had never hear of, the woman who is the basis for the show Medium. I looked her up and she does not have a high accuracy rate for "predictions" and I thought it odd that the author is a Pastor who gives credence to psychics. This is my first Randy Singer book and I will try to read another...but this isn't a great start.
