Carol Stream, Ill.—Randy Singer, renowned author of numerous legal
thrillers, calls his new novel, Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales, “a book about
redemption and loyalty.” In this book, he brings modern issues like pointshaving scandals, misplaced trust, and underhanded intelligence gathering to the forefront.

Main character Landon Reed is a former SEC quarterback convicted of organizing a point-shaving
scheme. While in prison, he finds forgiveness and faith. After prison, he earns his law degree and longs
for an opportunity to prove his loyalty and worth. He’s hired by Harry McNaughten, one of the founding
partners of McNaughten and Clay—and the only attorney willing to take a chance employing an ex-con
turned lawyer. Although Landon initially questions Harry’s ethics and methods, it’s clear the crusty old
lawyer has one of the most brilliant legal minds Landon has ever encountered. The two dive into
preparing a defense for the highest-profile murder trial Virginia Beach has seen in years when Harry is
gunned down in what appears to be a random mugging. Two more lawyers are subsequently killed when
the firm’s private jet crashes. Authorities suspect someone has a vendetta against McNaughten and
Clay, leaving Landon, his family, and the only remaining partner as the final targets. Landon can’t help
but wonder if the plot is related to a shady case from McNaughten and Clay’s past or to the murder trial
he’s neck-deep in now. And one question is begging to be asked: Will he survive long enough to find
out?

Randy Singer says he’s motivated to write because “stories convey the truth,” and as a writer he relishes
the opportunity to “get into those deeper questions that fiction can raise.” Singer shares that in his own
personal experience as a litigation attorney, redemption is a prevalent issue. He often has to ask, “When
has somebody paid their price to society? And do we forgive them and give them a second chance?”
Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales makes the reader consider this as well as some of the other issues facing our
society.
