A New Kind of Hero for a New Kind of Thriller!
Nick “Deke” Deketomis shares more than a few qualities with his creator, Mike Papantonio. He’s a tough-minded trial lawyer with a history of making large corporations pay for their bullying tactics. As one of the few powerful liberal voices in his community of Spanish Trace in Florida’s Panhandle, he is not afraid to speak his mind—especially when it comes to “wing nut” conservatives and their corrupt allies.
But when Nick prepares to butt heads with the owners of S.I. Oil, the tyrannical, corrupt, multibillionaire Swanson brothers, he faces one of the riskiest trials of his career. Suddenly his nasty habit of rubbing powerful people wrong way catches up with him.
Mike Papantonio is a rising star in thrillers, delivering exciting fiction with a smart political insight. Along with co-hosts Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and Sam Seder, Papantonio’s nationally syndicated radio show Ring of Fire and its expanding multimedia network delivers the latest progressive news, commentary, and analysis to millions of listeners and viewers.
"The multidimensional brilliance of Mike Papantonio shines brightly through this can't-put-it-down legal thriller. For a deep dive into law and politics, power and those who fight it, and the very human conflicts that drive and tear at us all, read Law and Disorder!"
—Thom Hartmann, nationally syndicated talk show host and best-selling author
"Law and Disorder is not only a legal thriller in true Grisham style-it is also an excellent window into the total dysfunction of the justice System. I literally couldn't put it down."
—Mark Geragos, renowned criminal defense attorney and author of Mistrial: An Inside Look at How the Criminal Justice System Works…and Sometimes Doesn't
"The legal maneuvering, courtroom drama, and brisk pace make this a satisfying tale of greed, corruption, lust, and murder."
"You think you know the legal system? Mike Papantonio’s Law and Disorder is an eye-opener. This is a legal thriller that edifies. Papantonio recasts the role of mass tort lawyers from villains and bottom-feeders, framing them instead as heroes and the last defense against corporate money and vested interests. In his legal career the author has walked the walk; now he successfully talks the talk in this compelling David vs. Goliath story."
—Alan Russell, bestselling author of Burning Man
