My Review:

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!
