Contempt of Court is a fast pace, riveting book that will keep you up late and page turning, to find the answers. Mike Zorich is a respected and hard working attorney, with some really big cases on his plate. He is finally, although still hurting, over the death of his wife five years ago. His son is doing well, and he is in a new relationship with Nancy, only he is having a hard time committing to her. All of a sudden out of nowhere he is beat up, while he is out jogging. Snide remarks are made to him, but he his having a hard time coming up with answers as to why this guy wanted to hurt him. He is working on high profile partnership dissolution, are they responsible? After the first incident, one after another things begin to go wrong, and people are getting hurt. He needs answers, and fast. Oh what a tangled web we weave, as the old saying goes, and you will wonder how things can get any worse, when the Judge isn’t upholding even the law? Can he find the answers before someone is killed, you won’t see what is coming, and you will be searching for answers to who. You think you will know who is responsible, but you will soon be second guessing yourself. I hated the injustice that goes on, how? Why? Yes the answers are here, but you will have to get to them. Enjoy! I received this book through Pump Up Your Book Virtual Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

Ken Malovos in his new book, “Contempt Of Court” published by the author brings us into the life of Mike Zorich. From the back cover:    Sacramento trial lawyer, Mike Zorich, is finally coming to grips with the death of his wife from cancer five years ago. His son is making his way in the business world. His law practice is going well. And he has a new case that promises to be very demanding. Members of the Darnoff wine family are at odds with each, amidst a divorce and partnership dissolution. Then things go wrong. Mike becomes the target of some unexplained personal attacks. He is mugged on the bike trail and his house is ransacked. Is it someone connected to the Darnoff case? Is it an old client from his years in the Public Defender’s Office? Is it some disgruntled witness from a trial? To top it off, Mike is held in contempt of court and remanded to jail. The attacks continue and only get worse. The authorities don’t have a clue. Can Mike figure it all out before someone is killed? There is no better legal thriller than when a lawyer, who knows how to tell a story, gives us an adventure with a lawyer.  And let me tell you right up front that Mr. Malovos knows how to tell a story.  The courtroom, legal documents, criminal, civil and corporate cases, this is a different world for me.  Obviously a world where I do not come into much contact with and I do not fit in with.  But with Mr. Malovos to take me by the hand and navigate the way for me then I can understand some of the inner workings of the court system.  Mr. Malovos has given us a legal thriller done old school–bad judges, high stakes corporate shenanigans, contempt of court from the judge and jail.  What in the world is going on?  I didn’t figure anything out until the end and that was when it was all spelled out for me.  “Contempt Of Court” is a roaring good story that will keep you highly interested in what is going to happen next.  I am so looking forward to the next book by this highly talented author.
