    False Prophet a LegalThrillerBy Jeff RasleyThis gripping legal thriller offers an insight into the workings of the legal profession while abounding in action class action intrigue and passion The main character is former corporate attorney Jack Ross who is trying to make it in private practice in Indianapolis Indiana a somewhat conservative Midwestern town which suffers from some of the same inner city problems of its sophisticated neighbors to the north Jack and his partner and loyal secretary are having trouble paying the bills when an impressive black minister from a blighted neighborhood walks in and offers them a chance to redeem their firm and themselves financially and spiritually When they decide to take his case and help him build the church of his dreams they must deal with threats from their former partners at the large and powerful corporate law firm better known as the bastards at Barry and Rehab They also must contend with the reverend’s congregation and the residents of the “hood” a libelous article in the local paper corrupt city officialsand unscrupulous real estate developers If that were not enough Jack is going through marital problems and fears losing the love of his life Diane because he is not ready for fatherhood I enjoyed the setting and intimate details of life in Indianapolis and I especially enjoyed getting an insider’s look at the legal system including a lawyer’s thought processes and strategies The viewpoint is masculine when it comes to relationships sports action and drama but both genders will enjoy this book for the gentrification issues and the general geniality of the characters Doug Jack's partner who is a recovering alcoholic and his old friend Bernard Davis Big Daddy Money who grew up in the hood help him with the case when the going gets rough This is an entertaining book with realistic action appropriately placed humor and well developed characters setting and plot The author is an attorney with a degree in theology I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the mysteries of the legal system and a good legal mystery with some spiritual overtones offered by the Rev Hosea Brown Discover with Jack if the Rev's “vision” is true or if he is a “False Prophet”

    False Prophet A Legal Thriller By Jeff RasleyFalse Prophet is an exciting story that pits the unwavering faith of a deeply spiritual pastor against forces of corrupt politicians unscrupulous corporate leaders and manipulative attorneys Rev Hosea Brown refuses to compromise his integrity despite seemly insurmountable obstacles caused by those in positions of authority in the community His faith is tested to the brink when his family falls prey to criminals Rev Brown seeks legal assistance from Jack Ross a disillusioned attorney struggling with his own internal battles of family finances and faith False Prophet has many unexpected twists that keep the reader engagedThe author Jeff Rasley's experience as an Indianapolis attorney gives him a uniue perspective as an insider to the judicial system of Indiana He brings the characters to life with realistic descriptions of Indianapolis Indiana The story explores Midwest conservative political values inner city deterioration white flight racial biases corporate greed and unethical lawyers The writer reveals the ugly side the under belly of the legal system He challenges the reader to ponder how we define community and under what circumstance is someone willing to help the disenfranchised solely based on doing the right thing Are there attorneys willing to confront and expose corrupt political leaders the power of the newspaper and a prestigious legal firm without regard to billable hours Is Jack Ross willing to face his own fears and represent Rev Brown in his legal battleI recommend this book for those who enjoy realistic legal mysteries
