(From the publisher):
The whole world hates the insanity plea.
Quinn Newberg is a high-priced Las Vegas attorney who specializes in the insanity defense. His latest client is Catherine OíRourke, a Virginia Beach reporter accused of being the serial killer dubbed the Avenger of Blood.
Catherine maintains her innocence, but even she canít explain the evidence thatís mounting against her. Most disturbing are the details of the crimes that Catherine shared with detectives prior to her arrest, details no one but the killer could know. She claims to have witnessed the murders in her dreams and shared them only to aid the investigation.
Quinn believes in justice, Vegas styleóa little showmanship goes a long way with juries. He also believes in his client. But he doesnít believe Catherineís dreams are anything other than the result of a fractured personality disorder, triggered by a traumatic event from her past.
Though he knows that insanity cases are unpredictable, nothing has prepared Quinn for this. To win, or even survive, heíll need more than his famed legal maneuvering and biting skepticism.
On this case, heíll need a miracle.
