That was the problem with the witness protection program. To convict the Satans of the underworld, you had to hold your nose and cut deals with Satan's demons. ~ False Witness False Witness by Randy Singer was originally published on June 28, 2007. Because of the many recent historical events and advances in technology, the author believed it was necessary to make substantial changes. False Witness is a Christian version of the best James Bond movie and John Grisham novel all rolled into one book. I could not put this book down. With twists and turns sharper than a mountain road, the author grips the reader with a skillful mix of faith, suspense, legal drama, and grit. The story line is so fantastic that you'll need to remind yourself to breathe! Clark Shealy is a bail bondsman when his wife, Jessica, is kidnapped by the Chinese mafia. He has forty-eight hours to find an Indian, Professor Kumari, now pastor among the Dalits, India's lowest caste, who has invented the Abacus Algorithm an equation so powerful it could crack all internet encryption. Should this code fall into the wrong hands, all privacy would be gone forever. Four years later, a law student, Jaime Brock, is working in legal aid when a routine case takes a vicious twist: she learn that her new clients, David and Stacie Hoffman, are members of the witness protection program, and have the algorithm. When Jaime is kidnapped, the couple are on the run again from federal agents and the Chinese mafia, who both know the formula's power and will do anything to get it. But Professor Kumari hid the code so deeply, in the most unlikely place. Based on an event in the author's life, the best line and theme of this book is this statement. The government can give you a new identity. But only Christ can change your life. This book brought many moral questions while reading. â– Is torture acceptable when trying to gain information to save another's life? How much should the government know about our personal lives? Is it acceptable to lie to promote the greater good? Could we be doing more to physically and spiritually help those who are in slavery around the world? A few years back, the author developed a new passion, He went on a trip to India and met the Dalits, saw firsthand the oppression, and was astonished by the fact that the world's largest democracy was also a breeding ground for the world's largest human-trafficking operations, that exploit 15 million children in bond labor, prostitution, and other forms of slavery. Pastor, author, and attorney Randy Singer, is donating all royalties of this book to the Dalit Freedom Network, which works to provide Dalit children a first-class education and free them from the bondage of human trafficking.
