False Prophet, a Legal Thriller is a gritty insider's rant against the corruption of our legal system. The author practiced law in Indianapolis for 30 years.
Jack Ross loses his soul but finds redemption representing an evangelical African-American preacher. Jack's downward spiral begins with his idealistic but doomed defense of his best friend and colleague. It becomes an existential crisis. His wife leaves. His partner is in alcohol rehab. Jack's struggle to reclaim professional and self respect is aided by a petty criminal and a hot young reporter. Jack sets out to right the wrongs done to his Christian prophet-client. The pursuit of justice reveals political conspiracy, real estate fraud, kidnapping, and murder. A high price is paid for the truth.
False Prophet is closer to The Verdict than John Grisham. It reveals the seamy underside of local politics and the legal system in Indianapolis. But it shows how white folks and African-Americans can worship and work together for justice. The love story is one of frustration and self-destruction, but ultimately understanding, reconciliation, renewed intimacy, and a baby.
Jeff Rasley practiced law in Indiana and the federal courts for 30 years. The legal case in the book is inspired by one the author handled. Characters and events are fictional, but based on the experience of representing Fortune 500 companies, criminals, CEOs, and crack whores - the silk stocking and seamy under belly of law practice in Indianapolis.
