Editorial Reviews

Review

Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' FavoriteFalse Prophet, A Legal Thriller is the story of a charismatic African-American minister... It is also the story of Jack Ross and his struggle to save his marriage, save his struggling partnership and most of all, save his idealism and belief in justice after working too long in a legal system he doesn't believe in anymore. Rasley has created a very likable and credible character in Jack Ross, who fights for the underdog while actually being something of an underdog himself. Jack's most redeeming qualities are his strength and determination, something nurtured during years of high school athletics, and his loyalty, demonstrated by his walking away from the largest and most prestigious law firm in the state in support of his best friend... There is a compelling sub-plot - Jack's threatened marriage - which is woven alongside the lawsuit and dispersed in timely increments that complement the main thread of the novel. The politics, greed, and ruthlessness of those in the top tiers of society in Indianapolis ring true. The strengths and frailties of the characters are subtly but effectively portrayed and the portrait of our legal system in action is vividly rendered. I eagerly await the next one by Jeff Rasley.

"This gripping legal thriller offers an insight into the workings of the legal profession while abounding in action, class action, intrigue, and passion. ... 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."

From the Author

False Prophet? is very loosely based on a case I handled over twenty years ago as a young lawyer.  Unfortunately, the side in the wrong prevailed in that case.  It was one of many experiences of injustice I encountered in a thirty-year long legal career.  I was blessed to represent a wide diversity of clients from murderers to Fortune 500 companies. 

For the last couple years I've been happy to be out of the law and able to write about it instead of practice it.  The joys and trials of raising two boys with my wife helped me to cope with the stresses and moral ambiguities of lawyering.  For the last eighteen years I have developed trekking and mountaineering skills and experience and have been organizing and leading Himalayan expeditions since 2004.

My nonfiction book, Bringing Progress to Paradise, What I Got from Giving to a Himalayan Mountain Village, relates some of my Himalayan adventures, but more interestingly, I think, it describes the special relationship I have developed with Basa village.  The law was very very good to me, but liberty from the law has allowed me to devote time and resources to coordinating the  Basa Village Project supported by First Friends Quaker Meeting.

Working with the beautiful people of Basa Village, Nepal, has been a balm to the jaundice and cynicism engendered by thirty years in the American legal system.  Reflecting on experiences in the law from Himalayan peaks gives one a different perspective to shark-infested waters.
