Overview

Danger Road chronicles the incredible true story of three drug dealers who were brutally murdered in 1983 on Danger Road in the Florida Everglades. Lured into a phony drug deal, the victims found themselves at the business end of a gun wielded by a Miami-Dade police officer. But police and prosecutors say Officer Gilbert Fernandez Jr. and his crew weren't there to arrest the drug dealers. They were there to execute them and steal their eight kilos of cocaine. The story details the transformation of Fernandez, from Miami 's Meanest Cop to a loving father who lived to convert people to his newfound faith in Christianity. Danger Road is the story of Fernandez’s trial for his life, told by John P. Contini, the Fort Lauderdale criminal lawyer who represented him. By ripping the lid off the behind-the-scenes machinations of our legal system, one of the author's goals was to cause readers to take another look at the way justice is dispensed in our society.

Meet the Author

Attorney and author John P. Contini began his career as an assistant state attorney (1983–1987) with the Broward County State Attorney's Office. In 1985 he was chosen from more than one hundred prosecutors to head the Obscenity Unit, responsible for prosecuting those accused of obscenity-related crimes. He became a criminal defense attorney in 1987 and developed a reputation as a lawyer willing to defend the indefensible in Florida and the United States. Neither he nor his infamous clients are strangers to the media. In his role as defense attorney, the author has been featured many times on the evening news and in major newspapers. In 2001, he added the area of personal injury and wrongful death cases to his legal practice. Among other professional associations, he is a member of the Florida Bar, the Massachusetts Bar, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the Association of Trial Lawyers of America.

    Highly Recommended!

    I stumbled across this book trying to find a new true crime nook book, and I could not put it down once i started reading it. John Contini is an incredibly witty writer, honest and deep down, like most of us; he pours it out as he pours it into a glass!! I am now reading his other book because of his writing in Danger Road, and I am again, laughing out-loud and glued to the story.

    Boring

    The book rambles on about boring trial talk. The crime was fully exposed early in the book. Author tried to be funny at times. Dont waste your money
