Law and DisorderAttorney Nicholas “Deke” Deketomis is a hard hitting lawyer in Spanish Trace, FL and a monumental thorn in the side of corporations who put profits before people. He has a reputation for going after companies with everything he has and obtaining large settlements for his clients. Deke’s life becomes very complicated, however, after he is framed for murder while litigating two major tort cases against Bekmeyer Pharmaceauticals and S.I. Oil. Substantial money is at stake and conservative forces backing both companies seem to be conspiring against Deke to shatter his credibility and destroy his reputation.

Law and Disorder is the debut novel of Mike Papantonio, one of America’s toughest and most successful tort lawyers. He is a senior partner of Levin Papantonio, has served as President of the National Trial Lawyers Assoc. and host the syndicated radio show, “Ring of Fire.” Now he has added up and coming author to his list of accomplishments. Law and Disorder centers around a lawyer created in Papantonio’s own image: hard-hitting and no-holds barred. While perhaps not as hard-hitting a novel as Grisham, it is a gritty novel, with a plot that will keep you reading long after dark. I look really forward to the next Deke Deketomis novel and give this one 4/5 stars.
