Raoul Revord, Esq.
Fiction: Mystery/Crime
On September 22, 1984. At 6:30 P.M. John Davis and his wife, Jean Davis, are in a heated argument. John is drunk, sitting on the bed.

He threatens her, “I’m going to kill you, your brother, and Robert too, now give me that fucken gun.” John glares at her with a hateful and a weird look on his face.

Jean’s standing a few feet away, with a rifle to defend herself, terrified to death. As an attempt to snatch the gun from her, he gets up from the bed and lunges forward.

Everything happens so fast that a terrified Jean shoots John involuntarily. Blood oozes out of John’s mouth and nose as he lay dying.


Attorney David Chartier's family time came to a halt when a highly distressed woman called him from the Michigan State Police Post where she is being held for her husband's murder. To defend his client, David must find the truth in forensic evidence and, through a sensational trial, portray to the jury a drama of the life of Jean and John Davis.

Beyond Terror follows the proceedings of the trial, beginning with David's investigation at the scene until the final verdict from the jury and appellate decision of the Court of Appeals.

Beyond Terror tells readers this gripping story of a battered wife who suddenly is left no choice but to end years of domestic violence by killing her abusive husband.

But was it self-defense or was it murder?


A trial lawyer for forty-eight years himself, Raoul Revord delivers this fictional story based largely on real events with much precision, capturing the technicalities and the drama involved in criminal proceedings.
