Echoes of Pendulum of Justice: Government Stealing Inventions

An article by Eric Shawn on Fox News discusses how the government is stealing the inventions of private citizens.  In our Novel, Pendulum of Justice, the main character’s invention is stolen by the government resulting not only in the death of his company but the deaths of thousands of people.  These are the real world affects of our government not protecting the property rights of inventors.  Congress is set to further weaken the property rights of inventors with the so called Innovation Act, HR 3309.  This act is designed to allow large corporations and the government to steal the inventions of startups and individual inventors.  We did not know about these specific examples of the government stealing inventions when we wrote the book, but we did know this is the logical consequence of the policies being pursued in the U.S.


“Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people.”

Hank Rangar, former cyber warrior, has revolutionized cardiac surgeries, and is able to save millions of lives and medical expenses with his lab Made By Man. Unfortunately, his technology is stolen and his gravely ill sister desperately needs this crucial lifesaving procedure. Hank has to face a corrupt Washington bureaucracy – will he succeed? Pendulum of Justice is the first installment in the Hank Rangar Thriller series by husband and wife, authors Kaila and Dale Halling, aka D.K. Halling.

Absolutely brilliant – that was my first thought after I finished reading this compelling novel. Pendulum of Justice is a fascinating political thriller that grabbed my attention right from the get go. I want to have the intelligence, ethics, and bravery of Hank Rangar. I really admire this well-developed protagonist, who is a high-tech expert with a history as a skilled combatant in the government’s computer warfare efforts. Corruption is an essence of the story’s premise that is familiar to all of us, so that we will instantly relate to Hank and the problems that he faces. His pain, frustration, and triumphs Pendulum.finare also ours, against powerful people who let greed take over their ethical sense.

Kaila and Dale Halling are able to harmoniously create a deft prose in this engrossing tale about one man’s justice against a broken system. The message of this novel is bold, reminding us about the prejudice of government’s regulations regarding the merit of innovations. Overall, this is a commendable novel and an excellent debut for a great series.

Pendulum of Justice has twenty five reader reviews on Amazon, with 22 out 25 being five out five stars and three being four out of five stars.
