One week before Jake Rutledge is scheduled to graduate from law school, he receives the devastating news of the death of his fraternal twin, Blake. What makes this death even more terrible for Jake is that his brother died of a drug overdose. Until hearing of his death, Jake had no idea his brother was even using drugs. When Jake returns home to Oakley, West Virginia, he takes a hard look at the circumstances of his brother’s death. In the five years Jake has been away for his schooling, his hometown has drastically changed. Because of the opioid epidemic, and the blight it has brought, many now call Oakley “Zombieland.” Jake can see how his town’s demise parallels his brother’s. Undeterred, the newly minted lawyer takes on the entrenched powers by filing two lawsuits. Jake quickly learns what happens when you upset a hornet’s nest. The young attorney might be wet behind the ears, but is sure there is no lawyer that could help him more than Nick “Deke” Deketomis and his law firm of Bergman/Deketomis. Deke is a legendary lawyer. When he was Jake’s age he was making his name fighting Big Tobacco. Against all odds, Jake gets Nick and his firm to sign on to his case before it’s too late.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This compelling read is both entertaining and edifying, and the story is more than timely. In his real life, attorney Papantonio is making it his mission to bring to justice those who unleashed the opioid scourge upon our country; in this fictional tour de force he has drawn characters engaged in this life and death struggle that the reader can’t help but care about. Bravo!” Alan Russell, #1 bestselling author of Burning Man and Guardians of the Night
“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 Addiction!” Thom Hartmann, nationally syndicated talk-show host and New York Times bestselling author
