As a homicide trial attorney for 23 years, once I picked up A Voice out of Nowhere, I found it impossible to put down, the story working its way into the deep fibers of my nerves as I read on. Janice Holly Booth put me right in the court room with word-for-word verbatim accounts of what had occurred: I was reading transcripts, police reports and autopsy reports, giving me the chill of a court room. A Voice out of Nowhere is electrifying, spine-chilling, engaging, and riveting, telling a true story that directly pertains to our national crisis in mental health. Take Colorado, Virginia Tech, Newtown -- proof that we're not dealing with the darkest side of untreated mental illness. In fact, we're ignoring it to our peril. -- Michael "Judge Mazz" Mazzariello, legal analyst, radio host of "Closing Arguments," and syndicated television host of "Street Court."
Janice Holly Booth brings her considerable
writing skill and talent to bear in the telling of this fascinating and tragic
story. True crime books abound these days, but few writers have the
personal connection to their material Booth does. From the haunting opening to the nail-biting climax, this is a journey into madness and murder you will find hard to put down. -- C.E. Lawrence, award-winning author of the Lee Campbell "Silent" thriller series.
