Great read

Singer writes a great book that kept my interest from the beginning to the end. The perp was totally unexpected, and it was interesting how the clues slowly unfold. The reader made the story enjoyable too

GREAT LISTEN!

You know when the narrator reaches the end of a chapter and there's a long gap...when you sometimes think you e run out of battery or somehow disconnected your device. Then, just as you look at it the narrator announces the next chapter and you sigh with relief. Well, at the end of this book I SO wanted to hear another chapter announced but, it was the END. I loved this book.

Legal Thriller with a Twist

Where does By Reason of Insanity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoyed this book -the twists the story took made it so interesting and well worth listening to ...I think this book is in the upper third of the books I listen to. However, I am such an eclectic reader that it is hard to rank books--I just like so many genres.

What other book might you compare By Reason of Insanity to and why?

This is a legal seat belt suspense (sorry Brandilyn Collins)-a little of Brandilyn Collins, a little of Nora Roberts and a lot of twists and turns.

Have you listened to any of Tom Stecheschulte’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No but I liked his voice

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

I might have to listen again just to verify what I thought the ending was--I usually listen to my audio downloads at work while I am auditing a large bill for the VA --sometimes I need to go back and listen to certain sections of a book because I might have been too wrapped up in my work then I have to say huh? did I hear what I thought I heard?

Always a twist with randy singer

Love every one of his books. You think it’s one way then change your mind then think another then change your mind then it all comes together in the end. I’m more of an action apocalyptic person but these keep my attention through and through. Reader which I believe is normally the same has the same voices though for everybody and it kinda pulls your mind to other characters from other books and can be deceiving if you listen to his books one after another. Don’t do that and you will be golden.

Not this author's best.

This was not as good as some of his other books. The story dragged and just wasn't that great. The narration wasn't horrible, but neither was it great.

By Reason Of Insanity

Was looking for Shane Stevens book. I had read his book, By Reason Of Insanity, when I was in my 20's. Now pushing 60. Excellent book. By Shane Stevens

Excellent narrative

Decided I was going to write a beginning review. First audible book that was excellent from the beginning. The narrator had an excellent voice and the characters presented vocally were very good. Would listen to another audio book w/ this narrator. Beginning story line very compelling and can’t wait for the rest of the book.
