In Raymond Paul Johnson's legal thriller Conspiracy Ignited, Eric Ridge was beaten up on his boat and told to give up on the new case since he was being watched. Though he was working on two new cases, Eric was unable to determine which of them was connected to the warning. Refusing to give up on his clients, Eric summoned Terry, his best friend and investigator, for help. As a result of Eric and Terry’s investigation, they were thrust into the shadowy world of the Raven Society, a covert group that influenced court rulings for the wealthiest bidders. Eric and Terry faced the Raven Society in a race against the clock that turned into a fight for survival, but would they live long enough to put their evidence to good use?

Conspiracy Ignited by Raymond Paul Johnson is jam-packed with action that never lets up. This story of the struggle between good and evil was interwoven with real-life military incidents, CIA encounters, and the high-stakes world of litigation. It was an exciting ride filled with suspense, criminality, and legal aspects. Even in the quieter moments, the tension kept me on the edge of my seat, and I was constantly looking for Eric's next unexpected threat. A compelling group of individuals faced a dangerous society that would stop at nothing to seize control of the justice system. Despite the overwhelming odds, Eric and Terry risked their lives to halt the Raven Society. I could not stop turning the pages of this thriller until the shocking ending.
