Find the missing teenage daughter of a Houston evangelist that every cop in town is already looking for. But March has an inside track: a multiple murder nobody else thinks is connected.

    Overall the book was pretty good. It was writen in first person and the narration made me feel like I was listening to Dragnet with Joe Friday. The author did an excellent job with character development. I'm looking forward to reading book 2 in the series.

    Story

    This was the first book that I bought from Irene Hannon and I was sort of disappointed. It didn't have any real mystery to it. I found it to be more of a clean Christian romance novel than a mystery. If you like a book that has lots of romance and the murderer is told to the reader up front, then you may like this kind of book. Overall, the book was just OK.

    If you enjoyed the first 2 books in the series, you will love book 3. I found the pace of book 3 to be faster than that of book 2. I couldn't find good stopping points! This series sold me on the Fantasy genre! Good job Ted Dekker! I found this book wrapped things up nicely and I'm not sure what book Green will add to the series. I'm still trying to decide if I need to get Green book 0. People who enjoy Christian Fantasy will enjoy this series.

    I have to admit that I had high expectations for this book after finishing book 1 - Black. The book was good but it just didn't move the story forward enough for me. I really feel like the main events in book 2 could have been added to book one or three. There are events in this book that the reader needs to know so I don't recommend skipping this book. As for the narration, Rob Lamont did a good job. I find Rob Lamont does rush the dialog a bit, but it doesn't take away anything from the performance. I still give him 4 stars. I can't wait to see how Ted Dekker wraps things up in the final book of the trilogy!

    Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real.

    I have to admit that I usually don't buy books in the fantasy genre, but I decided to give this one by Ted Dekker a try. I'm glad that I did! The book grabbed my interest from the start and held it to the end. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to keep up with which reality Thomas Hunter was in each time he woke up. That wasn't a problem at all! Ted Dekker does a great job guiding his audience through each reality so that you don't get lost or confused. Rob Lamont does a good job narrating this book. I think I just discovered a new interest in Fantasy books. Now onto book 2 in the series!

    The book quickly jumped right into the mystery. Once I started listening, I found it hard to tear myself away from this book. The narration could have been better. I found the voices often sounded too similar. The author did a great job of developing the characters. I did find myself getting emotionally invested in several of the characters. Overall, I very good book that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with lots of suspense.

    False Witness engages listeners who enjoy suspense novels with a message. This work, Singer's sixth, has more subtle spiritual themes than previous works. With a riveting plot, this is an excellent legal thriller for both male and female listeners. Capitalizing on our ever-growing concern with issues like identity theft, hackers, encrypted digital and electronic information, and personal security, False Witness could easily come from stories behind today's media headlines.

    Randy Singer is becoming a new favorite of mine. The books is suspenseful and well written. The book does have a good bit of tech jargon and that may not appeal to everyone. Otherwise, this is a great book with good narration. Good job Randy Singer! I have already purchased two more of his books and look forward to listening to them both.

    This book had just enough dialog and suspense to keep you turning the pages. The narrator does such a great job creating different voices for the characters that I often forgot that I was listening to a single narrator. I thought this was a good book with great narration!
