False Witness by Randy Singer

From the Back Cover
An adrenaline-laced thrill ride, False Witness takes readers from the streets of Las Vegas to the halls of the American justice system and the inner sanctum of the growing church in India, with all the trademark twists, turns, and intrigue Randy Singer fans have come to expect.
Clark Shealy is a bail bondsman with the ultimate bounty on the line: his wife’s life. He has forty-eight hours to find an Indian professor who created an equation so powerful it can crack all Internet encryption. If he fails, his wife pays the price.
Four years later, law student Jamie Brock is working in legal aid when a routine case takes a vicious twist: she learns that her clients, members of the witness protection program, are accused of defrauding the government and have the algorithm. Now the couple is on the run from federal agents and the Chinese mafia, who both know the formula’s power and will do anything to get it.
All royalties from False Witness will be donated to the Dalit Freedom Network, which works to provide Dalit children a first-class education and free them from the bondage of human trafficking. For more information, visit www.dalitnetwork.org

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book. Professor Kumari and his young protegee have discovered an algorithm that will basically render the Internet and its security useless. They want to sell the algorithm to help the needy back in their homeland. As his protegee is negotiating the deal to sell the algorithm to some businessmen, Professor Kumari watches via computer as the unthinkable happens! Clark is a bounty hunter and repo man who gets drawn into the strange mix of characters and is given orders to find Kumari before his wife is tortured...
It starts out with a highly stressful scene and only continues to get better! Each of the characters is well developed and we learn a lot through how their 'layers' are revealed. This book has suspense, twists, bad guys, good guys that may or may not be bad guys...it is a wonderful mix. The Chinese mob, FBI, Witness Protection, and all sorts of other players are brought in through the book and keep it rolling along. Through all this, the best part is the author weaves faith into the book, but it isn't 'in your face'. This is a book even non-Christians would enjoy!
I rate this a 5/5. It was a thrilling ride!
