Jersey Law

A Novel

Jersey Law

“There are no doubt more qualified lawyers around here. Most probably across the river in Philadelphia. But know what? Me and Mickie have got them scratching their heads. They’re thinking, How come those two guys keep winning their cases?” —from chapter two of JERSEY LAW

NOT SINCE THE SOPRANOS HAS THE UNDERBELLY OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY BEEN BROUGHT SO VIVIDLY TO LIFE.

Meet Mickie and Junne. That’s Mickie Mezzonatti and Salvatore “Junne” Salerno of Camden, New Jersey, a lovable pair of cops-turned-attorneys who defend and corral New Jersey’s worst of the worst.

Set in the streets and courtrooms of Camden, JERSEY LAW is the story of Junne and Mickie’s attempts to spring longtime client Slippery Williams, a charismatic drug lord who rules the local underworld, from jail. Junne and Mickie owe Slippery big time. He once saved their lives—literally—after a previous client tried to have our heroes murdered. But this case turns out to be much more complicated and far more perilous than Junne and Mickie imagined, and, once again, they’ll be lucky if they survive to hear the verdict.

Dark, witty, and fast, JERSEY LAW is a juicy, cinematic thriller that will enthrall readers through the very last page.
