When a rogue cult turns deadly, the FBI call on former conman Agent Saul Marshall. FALSE PROPHET introduces a gripping new series from thriller writer Richard Davis
Marshall is soon drawn into a cat and mouse chase with the leader of the cult, Ivan Drexler. As the scale of Drexler’s terrorist ambition becomes ever clearer, news arrives that he has taken Marshall’s son hostage. Removed from the line of duty, he must work alone, off-grid.
As the attacks intensify, Saul will stop at nothing to defeat Drexler.
But the FBI are questioning Saul’s own part in the carnage. He must work fast to save both his country and his life. Can Saul stop the carnage before it’s too late? And can he save his son?
As wave after wave of attacks break, the clock is ticking for Saul.
False Prophet is Richard Davis debut novel and also the first in a new series of novels following Saul Marshall. The False Prophet was a relatively enjoyable read, although if I’m honest the first half of the book was slow going, but after that it certainly picked up pace.
Saul Marshall is an interesting character, and I’m sure his character will evolve over the series, he certainly has a story to tell, and has all the makings of an interesting protagonist. Readers that enjoy a fast moving, action thriller will almost certainly enjoy False Prophet. There are enough twists and turns to keep the reader absorbed in the plot until the final page.
This was a good debut with some of the ingredients needed to make a good thriller, including a good plot, and well developed characters. False Prophet is a promising start to this new series.
