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 againuntil 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 worldand the next.

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.
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!
