Law student Jaime Brock dreams of becoming a prosecutor so she can take down criminals and dole out justice. Part of her training includes volunteering for a local legal aid clinic under the supervision of one of her professors. Little does she know that her newest client, David Hoffman, will changer her life in ways she never imagined.
David and Stacie Hoffman are on the run and the stakes couldn't be higher. In their former lives they testified against the Chinese mafia in return for new lives in the Witness Protection program. The government promised to protect them at all costs, but when the Chinese mafia tracks them down again, the Hoffman's smell foul play. In their possession is an algorithm that holds the key to unlock every Internet security measure that exists. Both the Chinese mafia and the government will go to great lengths to get their hands on the algorithm, and David and Stacie no longer know who to trust. Their only hope lies in the hands of Jaime Brock and her friends.
Randy Singer never disappoints and this latest offering is further proof. Make no mistake about it, False Witness is not just a legal thriller. Singer expertly combines elements of suspense, action, and intrigue into an explosive combination that really delivers. Having read only one other Singer novel (Directed Verdict), I am amazed at not only how great his writing is, but also at how little I hear his name discussed.
Singer is a true master of the craft, and once again he treats us with expert plot execution, crisp dialogue, hard core suspense, and fabulous characters. Bottom line: this guy is good. Seriously good. I have a stack of Singer novels on my shelf and you can bet I'll be diving in ASAP. I can only hope others will discover this great talent so he will get the recognition his writing deserves.
