After surgery following a gunshot wound and with a new appearance, Elias is recruited to infiltrate Eric Hands and his shady business empire.
Elias is now Tom White, code name The Prophet. He is a willing agent who seeks justice and revenge for his murdered father. The question is whether his employer has the same agenda. The mission becomes increasingly dangerous and morally questionable. The demanding role puts Elias in a mental pressure cooker with no chance to escape.
The False Prophet continues the dramatic events of the first part of the trilogy – The Winter of the Prophet. Frightening, nail-biting, and with an unexpected love story.
”The least one can say is that every page is exciting, the pace is so fast it’s impossible to stop reading; you just want to know how it will end. The characters and environments are so skillfully described that you feel a strong presence throughout the book. The main theme is the question of whether all means really are allowed in the chase for the really bad villains. Anyone who wants a well-written, engaging and intelligent suspense novel gets exactly that.”
”With a high tempo and a scary story, that could very well be true, Håkan Östlundh once again proves that he is one of our best suspense novelists.”
