   I RIGHT THE WRONGS - DYLAN SCHAFFER

I Right The Wrongs is the sequel to Misdemeanor Man. Gordon Seegerman is an attorney in the public defender's office in Santa Rita, California. Gordy lives at home and helps to care for his father, a former police officer, who is suffering from Early Onset Familial Alzheimer's disease. Gordy's brother has been tested and it has been found that he will not succumb to this disease but Gordy has yet to take the test so is in constant turmoil as to whether he may or may not fall victim to his father's disease. Gordy's brother and his grandfather help him with the care of his father.

Gordy's hero is Barry Manilow and his top priority is his Manilow band that is in the midst of preparation for a trip to Vegas. Maueve O'Connell, lesbian member of the Manilow band has somehow come up pregnant and is on bed rest and Gordy is trying his best to get his ex-girlfriend Silvie to fill in for Maueve.

In the midst of all this turmoil a case gets dumped in Gordy's lap. This starts out as a very uncomplicated case where a boy is accused of stealing a dog that is a mascot for another school but nothing is as it seems and the case turns out to be several charges including murder.

And when it is all said and done - it still is not as it seems. The book started out slow for me but I was glad I stuck with it and did enjoy it and would look forward to another Gordy book.
