Overview

In a dilemma that would have stumped Freud, budding pyschoanalyst, Dr. Jordan Geller, is forced to confront the question: Can the same person be murdered twice?

Once, Geller, a rationalist to his core, would have found the question absurd. But then Robin Norris, a beautiful actress desperate to overcome a problem with her singing voice, steps into his office, and his life. Geller hypnotizes her, and Robin quickly assumes the identity of Beverly Casper, a talented teenager who, thirty-two years earlier, had vanished into thin air, never to be seen or heard from again—until today, in Jordan Geller's office. The details Robin reveals under hypnosis eerily parallel a current murder spree, currently taking place in the Los Angeles area.

Should Geller go to the police with vivid, unkown details of the crime? Or should he go to his mentor, the renowned Dr. Elinor Fisher, who has made no secret of her contempt for hypnosis and reincarnation?

Heaven's Witness will not only keep you turning pages, it might well compel you to reconsider your most basic views about this world—and the next.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The serial killer known as the "Messenger" in Telushkin and Estrin's solid paranormal thriller has a particularly evil trademark: after abducting a young woman, he calls her parents to give them a message, a painful notification that their daughter is dead. But it's a message from beyond the grave that transforms the brilliant young psychiatrist Dr. Jordan Geller into an amateur sleuth. When Geller hypnotizes Robin Norris, a young actress struggling with her voice, he encounters the spirit of one of the Messenger's victims, Beverly Casper, who died in 1970, years before Norris was born. As an analyst-in-training at Los Angeles's elite Dittmyer Institute, Geller is no New Age flake; after some research reveals that Casper was real (and really murdered), he starts to believe in Norris and reincarnation. The psychiatrist proves to be seriously na ve as a detective, and when he goes to the police with the story, Geller himself becomes a suspect, one of a series of events that turns his monkish life upside down. Detailed backstories, plus numerous psychoanalytical and New Age tidbits, slow the plot in places, but the past-life angle sustains interest. Agent, Richard Pine. (Sept. 15) FYI: Telushkin is the author of An Eye for an Eye and other mysteries featuring Rabbi Daniel Winter, and has collaborated with Estrin on episodes of such Emmy Award-winning TV shows as The Practice and Boston Public. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
What happens when the key witness to an old murder was born five years after the events she recounts?Los Angeles psychiatric intern Dr. Jordan Geller hypnotizes fledgling actress Robin Norris as a party stunt. But a follow-up session she requests to relieve the mysterious symptoms of choking that are endangering her role in Carousel is anything but amusing. Robin seems to be channeling Beverly Casper, a high-school student who disappeared in 1970. Recalling Beverly's last moments in horrifying detail, she identifies her killer as a man called John who wanted to send her to heaven. Is Robin a reincarnation of Beverly? The stakes are raised by Dr. Elinor Fischer, Jordan's hard-nosed mentor at the Dittmyer Institute, who insists that he's trifling with irresponsible superstitions, and by the LAPD, who are dealing with a series of present-day killings that look an awful lot like the work of the same perp. Determined to connect the spate of murders by "the Messenger" to the 32-year-old case without exposing Robin to police scrutiny, Jordan presents her revelations to them himself, only to find that he's become the new suspect in the case. Telushkin (Words That Hurt, Words That Heal: How to Choose Words Wisely and Well, 1996, etc.) and his TV collaborator Estrin have produced a fleet, pulpy thriller-Mary Higgins Clark with teeth-that's especially good at balancing belief and skepticism about reincarnation.

    A Serious Page-Turner

    Just when you think you've figured out who 'dunnit' - think again. At first I thought, 'oh, this isn't that good of a story, I know who did it.' I was absolutely wrong. I bought this book because of my respect for Rabbi Tulushkin's work with Judaism and for Mr. Estrin's production of Dennis Prager's radio talk show. I was not disappointed. For skeptics, synics, and those with a lot of questions and curiosity, I highly recommend reading this book. You will not be able to put it down. I'm looking for a sequel.

    For believers and Non-believers, a thrilling ride

    The authors of 'Heaven's Witness' obviously have an agenda, to convince the reader of the reality of past-life experience. But, the beauty of this masterfully written novel is that even the most confirmed skeptic will be caught up in the almost heart-stopping suspense. Using the search for a serial killer as the vessel for their message, Telushkin and Estrin not only provide a marvelous thriller, but open up the mind to at least questioning all kinds of articles of belief, faith, and re-incarnation. Will anybody's mind be changed by the book? Frankly, I doubt it. I started out as, at the very least, agnostic on the subject and have achieved no higher level of belief. But my belief in the power of two superb writers being able to tell a story that moves like a house afire and thrills and delights the reader is very much re-inforced. Read it as a thriller; read it as a fascinating tract; but, if you like suspense, READ IT!
