Format: Paperback
In-Sight, a novel by Gerard D. Webster, is not only a thoroughly enjoyable read, it is a page-turner with a purpose. I read this 415 page book in less than a week, but I know I will remember it for much longer.
In-Sight is actually the story of many people--some good, some bad--whose lives intertwine in a dangerous conflict over transforming a little island community into an extravagant resort. Political and personal interests, power, corruption, and greed come into play. The full cast of characters include Ward McNulty, who is living a "successful" worldly life as a syndicated columnist who eventually must face the disturbing consequences of his actions; Carrie Hope, a beautiful, ambitious news woman with personal issues; Dan McNulty, Ward's father (who is too Catholic for Ward's liking); Father Bart, an old army chaplain; Bob Rohrbach, a defense-lawyer-turned-real-estate-lawyer who champions for what is truly right; and, of course, plenty of bad guys! Here's a brief passage from the book that illustrates one of the villains, a heartless drug baron:

"Galarza scoffed at the weakness of lesser men whose scruples kept them from ever becoming truly powerful. Of all the things he ever killed, he thought, his conscience was the easiest."

It is in fact how the characters deal with their consciences--whether they listen to them or smother them--that makes this story. Worldly vision of life can be--and often is--far from accurate, and the author's take on this theme is intriguing. A little less than half-way into the book, the story takes a twist that makes you say, "Ah-ha! Now I really get the title. Great double-meaning!" This dramatic twist would be hard to believe without the convincing context that Mr. Webster has created throughout the story.

I found "In-Sight," the new novel by Gerard Webster about a real estate scam in a small Florida town, to be a highly enjoyable read. I was hooked on the first page by the vivid characters who at first seem to be entirely unconnected with each other. It is gradually revealed how they are linked in several mysterious ways. The title is suitable since the author displays a shrewd insight into the workings of human nature, especially the destruction wrought by addictive behaviors. On the other hand, it is also demonstrated how "tough" love can set the stage for the healing of inner wounds. The mystery of iniquity and the mystery of divine grace strive with each other for mastery of the various characters, with individual free will determining which will triumph.

The plot centers around syndicated columnist Ward McNulty, who has managed to break free of his embarrassing, working class Catholic parents so as to enter into a sophisticated, glamorous world of cocktail parties, career politicians, and celebrities. His own celebrity status has acquired for him the favors of lovely anchorwoman Carrie Hope, who is as seduced as Ward is by the allure of power and wealth. Ward is trying to help a group of businessmen and politicians realize their scheme of buying out all the residents of a small island, which they plan to turn into a multimillion dollar resort. When Ward discovers that he will be working against his own family, his conscience is awakened.

Furthermore, the determination of the magnates turns increasingly sordid, as they try to smear the local parish priest when he gets in their way. The only person who can save the priest and the residents from disaster is the lawyer Bob Rohrbach, a man of unflinching integrity. He is also in love with Ward's sister Beatrice.

Format: Paperback
The award winning action-drama novel, In-Sight, written by author Gerard D. Webster, stands out among other Catholic books in this genre.

The book begins with Carrie Hope's dad's last words to her before dying in the hospital: ''I love you as my own.'' Carrie's parents were killed by a drunk driver when she was a freshman at Florida State University (FSU). This event leaves Carrie alone and with no known relatives. When she turns 21, opportunity comes knocking at her door- she lands a Summer internship job in TV journalism in England. She needs to apply for a passport and is unable to find a copy of her birth certificate. She contacts Mr.Tom Eddington, the family lawyer, and asks for his assistance. Her meeting with Mr. Eddington reveals some shocking family secrets that find Carrie ill-prepared and send her in a life of busyness and internal turmoil.

Meanwhile, syndicated column writer, Ward McNulty, is enjoying the fame and the power of his political commentary column, Inside Story. His credibility and insight change the lives of those people he writes about. Ward has been very outspoken and supportive of State Senator Chet Garner in his column. This relationship, however, will proof itself shallow and manipulative as the story unfolds.

Carrie Hope buries her past and continues working on TV journalism. Her hard work earned her the position of co-host at the news program, Channel Five at Five. She and Ward McNulty meet at the studio as she interviews him for the news series,'Local People Makes Good.' Some time after this interview, Carrie and Ward start dating and end up with Carrie's moving in with Ward. At first, their relationship is full of lust and passion, but these slowly disappear as they get more and more involve in their careers.
