The person is a serial killer, a deranged disability analyst. This is an imaginary story detailing such an occurrence.

The Deranged Disability Analyst is a mystery/suspense thriller about a disability analyst who becomes a self-appointed vigilante. He executes people he considers to be malingerers who have committed serious crimes and yet escaped the punishment he believes they deserve. At the same time, Matthew Brown, a branch manager with Disability Determination Services, is being targeted for assassination. Matthew Brown was stricken with polio at the age of five and has no use of his right arm and partial use of his left upper extremity. Mr. Brown slowly becomes aware that people who have been allowed Social Security benefits are being murdered.

This is a story about how God, through his Holy Spirit, speaks to people. This book depicts the power of prayer and miracles taking place.
