An Explosive Secret.
An Invaluable Code.
An Unreliable Witness.
Three ambitious law students at a local legal aid clinic watch as their routine case representing a man named David Hoffman ignites an incendiary trail of deception and betrayal. A member of the witness protection program, Hoffman has defrauded the government and eluded the Mob’s pursuit of his stunning secret: a coded algorithm capable of crippling the Internet and disarming national security.
Because of the intense threat posed by such a code, federal agents want Hoffman dead or alive. But the Mob wants him alive, more than willing to obtain the algorithm by whatever means necessary. And the would-be lawyers–caught in the middle of this deadly triangle–must overcome their differences and work together if they’re to survive long enough to graduate.
Bestselling author Randy Singer offers up his most dynamic legal thriller yet in a story based on his own real-life experience as an attorney assisting the U.S. Witness Protection Program. With page-turning suspense and heart-stopping twists, False Witness delivers on every level.
Randy Singer is the best-selling author of five legal thrillers, including The Cross Examination of Oliver Finney, Self Incrimination, and Directed Verdict, which won the Christy Award in 2003 for best Christian suspense novel. He also wrote the novella, The Judge Who Stole Christmas, and two nonfiction books. A veteran trial lawyer, he teaches at Regent Law School and serves on the Board of Legal Advisors for the American Center for Law and Justice. He and his wife, Rhonda, and their two children live near Atlanta, Georgia.
Praise for False Witness
“False Witness is an action-packed page-turner of the highest order. In fact, Randy Singer writes with such visual dexterity that we can only hope Hollywood will turn False Witness into a movie as soon as possible.”
–Aaron Norris, Movie and Television Producer and Director
“False Witness is an engrossing and challenging read, filled with authentic characters and well-drawn situations that are devastatingly authentic. It leaves readers wondering how much may be true, and amazed at the speed that our morals shift to accommodate our desires. Part detective story, part legal thriller–I couldn't put it down!”
–Shaunti Feldhahn, author of The Veritas Conflict and The Lights of Tenth Street
Praise for Other Novels by Randy Singer

“John Grisham meets C.S. Lewis…Self Incrimination is highly volatile, thought-provoking, and lots of fun.”
–Brandilyn Collins, author of Coral Moon
Randy Singer combines edge-of-your-seat action with a powerful message. Highly recommended.”
