False Prophet (Jack Ross Thriller-Mystery-Romance #1)
False Prophet shines a light on the corruption of our legal and political systems. Truth, Justice, and Religion clash in a case which tries to claim the soul of everyone it touches. But it’s also a love story and buddy story about healing wounds and redemption.
Jack Ross had everything he thought he wanted. But he’s ambivalent — about marriage, having a baby, the practice of law, local politics, even religion. His “existential crisis” becomes less about commitment and more about survival when he is fired from a silk-stocking law firm for trying to speak truth to power. Can he survive as a bottom-feeder in the legal system? Is salvation offered through his marriage to Diane or by forming a legal partnership with his alcoholic best friend, Bones?
And then, the strangest case falls into his lap. A great oak of a preacher man claims to have had a prophetic vision that he will build a cathedral to serve the worst slum neighborhood in Indianapolis. Dark forces are fighting him.
