From New York Times bestselling author Craig Parshall comes another riveting story of suspense.

When disbarred criminal defense lawyer–turned truth warrior Trevor Black chases a deadly Voodoo sect from Washington to New Orleans, he uncovers more than he bargained for. He not only discovers the Internet’s “dark web” being used by a powerful cult trading in female abduction, he also faces a dark empire as old as history itself.

Relentlessly pursuing his prey through the back alleys of the Big Easy and uncharted bayous of Louisiana, Trevor soon realizes that locating and disabling the ruthless power source behind the evil enterprise may extract an unimaginable personal price.



Craig Parshall is a rare breed: someone who is, mysteriously, both a great lawyer AND a great writer.

Steven Waldman, founder BeliefNet, former Nat’l Editor, U.S. News and World Report

Craig Parshall’s new Trevor Black series is simply riveting. In The Empowered we have a great cast of characters, a fascinating plot, and a bombshell or two along the way … Parshall knows his stuff. Highly recommended.

Craig Evans, Professor of Christian Origins, Houston Baptist University

The Empowered … reminded me that God uses His people to fight His battles against evil. He is the same today, yesterday, and forever. Spiritual warfare? Yes, ‘I believe’.

Congresswoman Linda Smith (1995-1999) Founder and President Shared Hope International


As a youth, Trevor Black unleashed spiritual forces he couldn’t comprehend. Years later, Trevor is a high-flying criminal defense lawyer in New York City, with a six-figure Aston Martin and a trophy wife. But in an extraordinary turn of events, he receives a burdensome gift: the ability to perceive the invisible. And the dark forces he now sees are all gunning for him.

The Empowered

The Dark Web

While The Empowered is fiction, the “dark web” which is the illegal back alley of the Internet and figures in the plot, is a disturbing fact that endangers our children.

Casting Light on Empires of Darkness

On the cusp of the release of The Empowered, a novel that begins with a deadly voodoo hex in Washington, D.C., this real-life voodoo-in-highplaces-in-Washington news hit the wires:

Inhuman Trend of Human Trafficking

While the victims at risk in The Empowered are fictional, there are real lives being impacted by the epidemic of human trafficking in our country.–law/arrested-georgia-fbi-led-child-sex-trafficking-operation/KUH0ch0ixwmEe22tFBOE2K/

The Occupied

A great book signing with Maryland lawyers, accompanied by Craig’s lawyer daughter Sarah (also an author!)

The Library Journal says –
“Parshall’s … spare style and eerie sense of foreboding heighten the tension to an unbearable level until the climatic final battle. VERDICT: With its well-rendered characters, the author’s latest supernatural thriller offers a realistic portrayal of a fallen world and the one true believer in Christ who can save it, for now. In the manner of Stephen King and Dean Koontz, Parshall pens a horrifying story of the unseen evils inherent in our society.”
