Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Gina Roman works for a high-powered lawyer firm, Bergman Deketomis. They take only the toughest cases that involve large corporations and invariably involve government departments. Their most famous cases involve corporations dumping chemical waste into rivers and causing, sadly, devastating cases of cancer for years to come. Of course, taking on such cases involves attracting danger in different forms and also requires the best legal minds to not only take on but also win such cases. These lawyers, including Gina, love the danger and the daily challenges of each case. The case Gina and her firm are presently focused on involves the design and production of a gun, the Sight-Clops, which has a definite problem when used in high humidity conditions. Investigating this “mistake” winds up with Gina’s boss, Angus, dead and Gina almost dead from an automobile accident. The description of the accident immediately notifies the reader that some big guns are after Gina, Angus and their law firm, opposition that will do whatever is required to get Gina and Angus to back off. Of course, no surprise here as it doesn’t work; if anything, as Gina begins her long, long recover, she is determined to use the time to intensify her search for Angus’s killer. A whistleblower is the source of the leak about the failed product but what are the chances for such a snitcher to survive? Mike Papantonio is a lawyer and so the plot of this crime thriller is credible, fast-moving but not unrealistically so, and demonstrates a passion for justice that still exists for those legal minds who have not become too jaded from experience. Law and Vengeance is a quick read because of its constant action-packed pages and interesting characters and issues. Enjoy the read and you’ll want to Mike Papantonio’s other novels!
