“No government has the right to decide on the truth of scientific principles, nor
to prescribe in any way the character of the questions investigated. Neither
may a government determine the aesthetic values of artistic creations, nor
limit the forms of literary or artistic expression. Nor should it pronounce on
the validity of economic, historic, religious or philosophical doctrines. Instead
it has a duty to its citizens to maintain their freedom, to let those citizens
contribute to the further adventure and the development of the human race.”

Pendulum of Justice Reviewed By Steve Moore of

Steve Moore ex-scientist and author six sci-fi thrillers reviewed Pendulum of Justice  for Book  Here is part of what he had to say:

Like all good thrillers, this one leaves you breathless but also makes you think, “Could this really happen?” After you remember things that go on in the real world, your answer will probably be a resounding “Yes!” And that’s the scary part. As I was reading, my mind kept going back to The Fugitive—the movie, not the TV series. There Harrison’s Ford character probably generates more sympathy than Hank, but the latter protagonist is perhaps more realistic. But for all lovers of a good thriller revolving around a nefarious conspiracy, this book is required reading.

Pendulum of Justice

Pendulum of Justice, A Hank Rangar Thriller, is the first in a series of novels by DK Halling published on August 28, 2013.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

With two high tech start-ups going gangbusters, former cyber warrior Hank Rangar has finally “made” it. His lab, “Made By Man,” has revolutionized cardiac procedures, potentially saving millions of lives and billions of dollars.  But, the most important person in his life is very sick and his technology is suddenly stolen.  Hank discovers two things: This lifesaving procedure may be the only way to save his sister AND Big Washington will stop at nothing to bury it.

Pendulum of Justice reads like a book on anti-gravity: impossible to put down!  My main complaint is how come the next book in the series isn’t out already.”

Things couldn’t be better for entrepreneur and engineer Hank Rangar.  He’s part of ground-breaking technology that will revolutionize the stents market, saving millions of lives and potentially billions of dollars.  But Hank is a man of action and has lots of plans –  a cutting edge lab in the Colorado Rockies, high tech start-ups- nothing will get in the way of his success.

Except, the most important person to him in the world is sick and the very technology he’s helped develop could possibly save her.

But the company has ground to a halt.  The patent won’t come through, FDA trials sidetrack, investors dry up.  Hank heads to Washington to demand solutions.  Millions of lives are at stake-not just his sister’s.

The deep pockets of big Washington lobbyists have other ideas.  He races against time to get the investment they need when, suddenly, everything goes terribly wrong.

Disillusioned and furious, Hank uncovers an insidious plot to bury the technology. His sister’s life is hangs in the balance, but now he has a target on his back.

There is nowhere to turn, and Hank is on the run.
