I can't say much that is nice about this one, so maybe I should say nothing. In a nutshell, once you have read GOOD legal thrillers, this one doesn't even come close. The lawyers you are supposed to care about are immature, sophomoric boys who still hang on to their high school football days; can't develop the emotional maturity it takes to keep a relationship going unless it is all about their "needs"; and the bad guys are one dimensional characters who come and go in every dime store novel, so it is impossible to be held in suspense about what they will do next.
On top of bad writing, add really bad narration. . . and this one becomes painful. Keep looking if you want a legal thriller. This isn't it.

What did you love best about False Prophet, a Legal Thriller?
I listened to the Audible addition of False Prophet straight through, with just a break for a few hours sleep. I found it captivating, the story flowing easily, compelling and propelling for a conclusion.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Jack Ross, whose personal story intertwined the plot, exposing role controversies in the professional and personal life of an attorney.
Which character – as performed by Lucas Schuneman – was your favorite?
The Pastor, perhaps unordained, but certainly called of God. A timid human of good will, victimized in a diabolical scheme.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Having sharpened my ‘business teeth’ in Indianapolis, I was trying to read between the lines to see if anybody I knew, including myself, were included in the story. As each character appeared and their part in the story unfolded, I felt - "I knew someone like that!". I was moved at every turn of events.
Any additional comments?
I certainly recognized the neighborhoods, the shifting demographics, and the relationships between the press, clergy, and law enforcement in Indy.
