Law and Vengeance: A Legal Thriller by Mike Papantonio – Book Review

Law and VengeanceLaw and Vengeance: A Legal Thriller by Mike Papantonio has an expected publication date of September 26th 2017 by Select Books (NY) and is a legal thriller. Gina Romano is a highly successful trial lawyer with Bergman/Deketomis, a firm dedicated to protecting the public by exposing and penalizing corporate crooks and their allies in government. Well into her thirties, Gina hasn’t overcome the anger and defensiveness resulting from a bizarre and traumatic childhood. As she contemplates whether to marry solid, attractive and loyal veterinarian Bryan Penn or to send him packing, the murder of a friend and mentor, Angus Moore, turns her life into a quest for vengeance. In consort with partner Nick Deketomis, Gina runs headlong into a life and death struggle against weapons manufacturers, a gun rights lobbyist, psychopathic Chicago police, a hi-tech genius assassin, and the U.S. Department of Justice. Still, the most formidable and dangerous enemy she faces is herself.

My thoughts:  You will not be disappointed when you read Law and Vengeance: A Legal Thriller with its action pack suspenseful plot line. I was hooked after reading the first few pages. Papantonio writes with his experience as a guide making this novel realistic and very believable with well thought out characters, a very developed story line and passion for justice that comes from working in a law firm. I did not read the first book in this series but I do feel that this book can be read as a standalone. I love that the characters have developed backstories that help to guide you through the reasons behind their choices and how they react to present day events. Papantonio brings the climax to a satisfying conclusion in this must read for any lover of crime, mystery, thriller and suspense, political, and law and order. ** I received an advanced reader copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. **
