The latest release from best-selling author Janice Holly Booth is described by forensic expert as a brilliantly written journey into the mind of a mass murderer.

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) June 26, 2014

When 22-year-old Bruce Blackman began talking about the end of the world and that Armageddon was at hand, no-one paid much attention. Even when he insisted that he was God, Jehovah and the Antichrist, those around him failed to recognize the potential for violence that was brewing in his troubled mind. Blackman was succumbing to mental illness in his case, schizophrenia and mass murder would be the signature he left on the world. In the early morning hours of January 18, 1983, Bruce Blackman brutally slaughtered six members of his family claiming that the voices in his head told him it was the only way to save the world from blowing up. His story is chronicled in the new #1 best-seller, A Voice out of Nowhere by Janice Holly Booth.

Forensic psychiatrist Dr. Eugene Maloney has seen more than he cares to remember when it comes to mental illness and murder. An award-winning advocate for the mentally ill, Maloney is a proponent of early intervention. He says that the case of Bruce Blackman is a textbook example of how failure to recognize signs and symptoms of impending violence can lead to the worst possible outcome. It took an orchestra of people to create this tragedy, he says, referring to the failure of the family and the treating psychiatrist to take effective action. A Voice out of Nowhere is a cautionary tale, and a brilliantly written journey into the mind of a mass murderer, says Maloney. Janice Holly Booth takes the reader into the mind of an inadequately treated schizophrenic and the devastating consequences. More importantly, she tells us how to prevent this horror.

A Voice out of Nowhere is available in print and as an e-book. It is a #1 Amazon best-seller.
