False Prophet - A Saul Marshall Thriller

False Prophet: A Saul Marshall FBI thriller (A Saul Marshall Thriller 1) by [Davis, Richard]
FALSE PROPHET - A Saul Marshall Thriller by Richard Davis

What do you do when you know you're right? A horrific sequence of events will manifest themselves into fruition.

Richard Davis has created an intensely spell binding story of one man's journey into the world of intrigue and deception. Davis presents a richly devious plot that will seduce the reader into the thrilling sequence of one man's struggle for truth and justice.

Saul Marshall is forced into action, leaving his job with the FBI to find his missing son. He races against the clock, using every resource imaginable to dig deeper into a crime-ridden world where the rules of society become nonexistent. The author's hard-hitting first person narrative keeps the pages turning.

"...if the message wasn’t a trap or diversion, and something was really set to happen at the theater, there were still a thousand possibilities as to what it might be: a bomb; a fire; a lone gunman; a mass hostage situation – to name a few."

The detailed rhetoric strikes a deep vein of profundity within the reader.

"My aim is to be the most inspired manipulator of men. I’m looking to exert true power through deception – to persuade my victims to act against their own best interests. After all, isn’t that the essence of con-artistry?"

But this novel is not so one-dimensional.

The subject matter is obviously well researched and there is a depth of moral obligation and personal connections that allows the reader to get lost in the complicated synergy of each character. Davis provides a satisfying yet bittersweet tale of redemption and deceit.

Richard Davis is a Londoner and this is his first novel. In 2011 he graduated from UCL and Cambridge University. He is currently published with Canelo.
