    This review was written for False Witness (rpkgd).
    Clark Shealy is a man who gets what he wants. He is good at his job as a bail bondsman, and can be ruthless in the business. When his wife is kidnapped and held for the capture of another man, he discovers how ruthless he thinks he can be. A court case, four years later, for law student Jamie Brock, has her perplexed. She wonders who is involved, and is mistrustful! When her dog is kidnapped, and she finds out her clients are part of the witness protection program, the case just gets more and more dangerous. Running from the feds and the Chinese Mafia, her and her fellow students wonder if they have all the pieces to the puzzle.

    This thriller is strung together well and will keep you reading long into the night when you should be sleeping! You will be wondering with Jamie, if she will survive to graduate and if the bad guys are going to win or lose. This book is more thriller and there is the smallest hint of romance, but it is pretty much just more exciting stuff. It is one that could be good for teens, especially the hints on the persecution in India of the church. -

    As I picked up "False Witness" by Randy Singer, I dound myself looking forward to my reading time every night. The plot has many twists and turns that keep the reader's interest. The lack of steamy sex scenes and absence of foul language revealed the biblical worldview of the author and made this novel avoid the pitfalls of similar books written from a secular worldview. I am looking forward to the sequel: "The last plea bargain."

    This review was written for False Witness (rpkgd).
    Bounty hunter Clark Shealy has forty-eight hours. His wife's life depends on it. Clark must find an Indian professor who has created an algorithm that could crack all internet encryption. The professor has it, and the Chinese mafia wants it. Clark must do things he never thought possible to try to save the life of his wife. Four years later, law student Jamie Brock takes on a case while working for legal aid. She soon finds out that her client is in witness protection, and the government has accused him of defrauding the government believing that he has the algorithm. Lives are in danger, as is national security, as the hunt for the algorithm pushes on and the keepers of the algorithm try to keep it safe.

    I have to admit I have mixed feelings about this one. I'll start with the negative first: I found that the book was a bit longer than it needed to be. There were several details that I skipped over because they just seemed unnecessary, and it didn't stop me from understanding anything. I didn't have to go back and read anything I skipped over. All of this unneeded detail tends to slow down the pace of the story_ and this one had the potential to be an action-packed page-turner. The book is split into five parts. I found myself struggling to get into the first part, even though the action was pretty well paced. I think it had a bit more to do with the characters, which I didn't feel drawn to at all.

    But there are good points. The characterization of new characters in the rest of the book are much better and the story does grow more interesting as you become suspicious of everyone. Singer also calls attention to the plight of the church and the lower caste population in India. A special note at the end of the book explains a little more about the situation in India and Singer announces that all proceeds from the book are going to the Dalit Freedom Network to promote english-based education for Dalit children and to stop slavery and sex-trafficking. This reason alone is worth buying the book.

    While I can't say this is one of the best books I've read, it does have its good points. Make it through Part I and you should be okay.

    I earned a copy of this book from Tyndale's Summer Reading Program. A review was not required.

    Interesting and suspenseful. Full of surprises. Gets a little gruesome at one point, but nothing too descriptive. Sometimes hard to understand how certain parts of the story help contribute. The story jumps around a little.

    FALSE WITNESS

    By Randy Singer

    What would you do if you had the world's most powerful algorithm? Would you use it? Would you sell it? Or would you give it away? Professor Dagan develops the Abacus Algorithm which can determine large prime numbers in a matter of minutes rather than in years. He wants to sell it and use the proceeds to help the underground church in China.

    What follows is a tangled web of lies, kidnappings, murder, torture, and subterfuge. Caught up in this web are three college students - Jamie Brock, Isaiah Haywood, and Wellington Farnsworth. And they are out of their element and out of their league, especially when danger lands on their doorstep. Who will survive the deadly will survive the deadly struggle between the U.S. Government and the Chinese mafia over an encrypted algorithm? When the time for answers comes will the truth come out or will a false witness step forward?

    False Witness is a thrilling read that shows a shady underside of life that each person must ask themselves, ''Would I be willing to do that if it was me?'' The answer if given truthfully will reveal something of yourself to yourself. What will you do for justice?

    I did not care for the death of Jamie's dog Snowball, that was my one big problem with the book.

    But otherwise it was very well written and interest grabbing.
