'False Witness' by Randy Singer
The first book by Ryan Singer I’ve read; I quite enjoyed it.
It was heavy on technicalities where law and internet encryption are concerned, and I suppose a lawyer or coder would find riveting what I sometimes found boring.
False Witness is action-packed; a novel about good guys and bad guys who are trying to get their hands on an algorithm that could lead to the collapse of the internet as we know it. There is betrayal, violence, murder, love, friendship – all the ingredients that sometimes made me miss the book and it’s characters when I was not reading it. Some plot twists I absolutely did not see coming.
I think some of Singer’s narratives could have been better worded; sometimes the book read like it was written by an amateur creative writer. Other than those awkward moments, it was a pretty good book.
