Rule of Law

Rule of Law

Rule of Law (Tyndale, September 2017)

What did the president know? And when did she know it?

For the members of SEAL Team Six, it was a rare mission ordered by the president, monitored in real time from the Situation Room. The Houthi rebels in Yemen had captured an American journalist and a member of the Saudi royal family. Their executions were scheduled for Easter Sunday. The SEAL team would break them out.

But when the mission results in spectacular failure, the finger-pointing goes all the way to the top.

Did the president play political games with the lives of U.S. service members?

Paige Chambers, a determined young lawyer, has a very personal reason for wanting to know the answer. The case she files will polarize the nation and test the resiliency of the Constitution. The stakes are huge, the alliances shaky, and she will be left to wonder if the saying on the Supreme Court building still holds true.

Equal justice under law.

It makes a nice motto. But will it work when one of the most powerful people on the planet is also a defendant?

  • Rule Of Law is a thrilling read. The author put together a book that captured my attention and kept it to the very end.

  • The author puts the reader’s mind to work, raising questions that you may not even think about. Lives being taken, political questions and what could happen and very likely does.

  • “Rule of Law” by author Randy Singer is the kind of book that you cannot put down, once you have started reading it until you have finished it. It is full of suspense and danger.

  • This is a legal procedure novel that could be out of today’s headlines. It brings up many questions relevant to how the U.S. government operates today. For example, how much secrecy does the government require to operate effectively? Should the U.S. send secret missions into countries with which we are not at war? I would have preferred a more concise novel with less description and character rumination but, other than that, a timely and thought provoking novel.

  • I had a hard time getting into this book. I think my main disappointment was that the “element of romance” died– literally– before it had much of a chance to develop. I did not expect this to be a romance novel. It’s not that genre at all. But somehow I couldn’t get past the grief part of the book to fully appreciate the intrigue/thriller part of the story line, which is really what the book is about. Also, I think I got bogged down in the politics. That being said, it was an interesting court case and I was intrigued to see how it turned out. And I liked several of the characters.

  • Prescient and gripping, the book proves that action and emotion can be expressed without compromising morality.

  • Rule of Law by Randy Singer was a really long book, and I struggled with wanting to read it. I know that has to do with the fact that I am so over politics in this country that when it came to reading a book that has to deal with that, I had no patience for it.

  • Randy Singer showed his great skill as an author by putting all those pieces together into a well-crafted story that should fit the tastes of a wide range of readers.

  • Fans of anything legal and military based will love this one!

  • This is the first Randy Singer novel I’ve read and I’m certain it won’t be the last. The combination of the legal, military, political and intrigue is compelling.

  • I’ve not read many of Randy Singer’s novels, but after reading Rule of Law this weekend, that’s about to change!  Rule of Law weighs in at a hefty 480 pages, but I flew through it in a single day – I couldn’t put it down!  It’s like the best of Joel C. Rosenberg and Dee Henderson and NCIS all rolled into one.

  • I found the premise intriguing but I got a little bogged down in the details of putting together their case. There were some pretty humorous moments in this story, which helped when dealing with a sad and sober situation. There was a little bit of romance and some good spiritual moments as Paige really got serious about her faith after being inspired by her boyfriend. This book really made me think more about our country and how we run it.

  • I am finally catching my breath again after reading this incredibly captivating legal thriller. Beginning with the action-packed opening sentences of the book that swept me into SEAL Team Six’s mission, and continuing throughout each fascinating chapter, I was gripped by this story. Singer knocks this one out of the park as he expertly weaves together military intelligence, political machinations, and legal issues into a tale that, though fiction, is far too real for comfort. Crisply written scenes and credible personalities bring the pages to life….

  • It is a rather lengthy book, but I was able to read it in two days. I could not put the book down. I was totally immersed in the courtroom drama, the political maneuvers, the question of guilt or innocence of the president and her advisor, and the legal ramifications of the findings.

  • DocsDoins says:

    While Randy Singer writes tight, action-driven suspense, in this reviewer’s opinion, the book (with 40 characters, and 473 pages!) is just too long. However, if you have the time and patience, this book reads like yesterday’s headlines!

  • Why, oh why has it taken me so long to pick up a novel by Randy Singer?! I love a good legal thriller, and nothing says legal thriller quite like a military widow suing the president of the United States! Plot aside, the thing that gave this novel an extra edge, as far as I was concerned, was the teaming of lawyers Paige Chambers and Wyatt Jackson. One young, serious, and cautious, the other a veteran attorney who’s brash and wiley. What a combination! Courtroom drama, political conspiracy, military/CIA action, and a personal and heartfelt need to know the truth makes for a gripping legal thriller!

  • The characters in this story are lovable, irritable and some are even downright despicable. The flow of the story is easy to follow, tough to stomach and never routine.

  • Incredible! Author Randy Singer nails it with his newest legal military thriller, Rule of Law. At first I was intimidated by the sheer size of this story but it. Is. Totally. Worth. It.

  • Rule of Law is a compelling tale! The characters and plot grabbed my attention on page one, and I remained engrossed until the very end. I loved the legal intrigue and was fascinated by the political and military drama that unfolded. Expertly told, this legal thriller made me an instant Singer fan, and I can’t wait to read more from this talented author.

  • I loved reading about different laws and how the judicial system works. The author takes us front and center inside a courtroom where the stakes are high and secrets could destroy a nation.

  • For me, this was a long wait since Randy’s last work of fiction, but is was so worth it! This is an over-the-top, well-written and exciting book I hope many read and share with others!

  • PHENOMENAL!!! The thesaurus contains an inadequate number of words to describe Randy Singer’s latest offering, Rule of Law. This legal thriller is 456 pages of, “OMG, I’ve no idea what will happen next, and I cannot bear to turn the lights out to sleep,” unbelievable!!

    Singer’s talent is matchless!! Rule of Law does not disappoint!!!

  • Randy Singer never disappoints in bringing readers who love a good legal thriller a white-knuckle read. I could not put his latest, Rule of Law, down! I’ve read many of his books and this may be the best to come from his pen yet. With exciting characters and an electric storyline, Rule of Law combines Singer’s typical legal flavor and adds a government and military component. This was a “sit on the edge of your seat” read that I won’t soon forget. If I could give it more than five stars, I would!

  • Rule of Law by Randy Singer is a must-read for 2017! This novel is well-written, action-packed, and thought-provoking. I could not put this book down!

  • This edge-of-your-seat story will have you holding your breath as you turn the pages to find out what will happen next.

  • If you enjoy legal suspense- especially books that involve the military or political figures, you’ll enjoy Rule of Law. I give it four stars and a PG rating for content.

  • I am not traditionally a reader of this genre, but I was hooked within paragraphs of starting to read this suspenseful, adventure thriller. Singer has created a novel that takes the reader on a thrill ride of twists and turns. I highly recommend coming along for the ride and reading Rule of Law.

  • Every time I pick up a Randy Singer I always think it’s the best one yet. Rule of Law has been one of those books that kept me up late at night reading. The suspense starts quickly from the first few pages. This is an amazing story. I might have to read it again!

  • Randy Singer in just one if the best of the best writers. Rule of Law is so real, the characters are so realistic, I was actually looking up pictures of the various places described in scenes throughout to book so I could imagine myself being there in the story.

  • By The Book says:

    Rule of Law by Randy Singer is fiction, but to this cynical reader, it could just as easily be the depiction of a real-life scandal with wide-ranging implications. And that’s what makes this novel not just an unputdownable adrenaline-laced book with both courtroom and battlefield drama, but a really believable story of intrigue, deception, and cover-up at the highest levels of government. Filled with well-developed characters and a plot that is all too possible, Rule of Law is suspense at its best. It gets a very highly recommended rating from me.

  • Political thrillers are not my go to genre, but politics is something I have become more and more interested in, so I decided to give Rule of Law by Randy Singer a try.

  • We really enjoyed this book. The first couple of pages, I wondered if I would get into this story but after that I was hooked.

  • Moments says:

    Randy Singer has created an intense read, a political suspense fiction read, that could non-fiction in the day that we currently live.  “Rule of Law” is a book that will have you completely engrossed in the story, and having you thinking and analyzing the whole way through and after you finish reading. 

  • Randy Singer has become one of my favorite authors for legal-centered fiction, but I was a bit apprehensive about his new book RULE OF LAW which delves into the political-military scene as well. No need for concern, Singer delivers a complex story line that had me engaged from the opening scenes right through until a powerful, emotional ending.

  • The book had an interesting and unique story line. Unlike, most of the other legal thrillers I have read, this book was the only one who didn’t have a romantic interest where it was competing with the story.

  • This is a phenomenal book! It evokes all kinds of emotions, keeps you on the edge of your seat from the beginning until you turn the last page. If you read one book this fall, make sure it is this one. This would be a perfect book for a book club to read and discuss. There are so many angles that would encourage all kinds of discussions.

  • The latest novel from Randy Singer is superbly written, a riveting story that will hold you in its grip from start to finish!

  • I experienced so many emotions in the first 70 pages of this book. It took me a few pages to get my head wrapped around all the action that was going on, but I couldn’t put this book down!

  • Randy Singer has written what can only be called an epic tour de force of legal and military suspense. His writing is tight, his plot lines are engaging, and the action rarely allows for the reader to take a ragged breath.

  • The book had a lot of unpredictable moments, and I had a hard time guessing what would happen next and how judges were going to rule. I liked the characters and plot, and it was easy to get caught up in the story, especially since it is so relative to current events.

  • Susan's Blog says:

    Rule of Law by Randy Singer is a fast-paced novel filled with intrigue and surprises. It’s thought provoking and a great read. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading Randy Singer’s other novels.

  • The plot could have been ripped right from the pages of recent history, and puts you in a position that is challenging. Based on real legal cases defended by the author, an experienced trail attorney, the authenticity of the book is flawless.

  • Anticipating a book written by an attorney entitled Rule of Law will definitely whet one’s appetite for a legal procedural. Randy Singer’s books have always been top-notch reads and he ranks amongst the best legal suspense writers of today. As anticipated, Rule of Law is loaded with development of court cases, deposition of witnesses, various courts scenes (including the US Supreme Court), and how attorneys reason through their statements for court.

  • Noveltea says:

    I have never in my born days read a book like this before. Not that it was an unusual book, just it’s not my typical genre and so I had no idea what to expect. I was confused right from the beginning, and the length of the book felt daunting. But then before I knew what was happening the book took me captive, and to my great surprise I was able to (mostly) keep up with what was going on.

  • Politically charged, and on-the-edge-of-your-seat captivating. This was hard to put down, even if it is a lengthy book. If you like military, legal, political stories, you will definitely want to check this one out! This was the first book I’ve read by Randy Singer; I don’t think it will be my last.
