Dead Wrong (Jason Justice Mystery Book 2) by Ralph Zeta

Reviewed by Chris Phillips

Dead WrongJason Justice is a “simple” divorce attorney in West Palm Beach, Florida. He is content with his position and his status. However, he seems to have a predilection toward getting involved in some more mysterious intrigue than would be thought for a divorce lawyer.

He goes to meet a potential client who happens to be a celebrity of note in the area. He doesn’t know what it is about, but assumes Milton Lowry wanted to discuss a divorce as that was his specialty. When he arrives at the designated location, he finds a BMW in front of an old mansion in the middle of the Okeechobee Lake region. There is music playing but nothing else to indicate other people are present.

Naturally, Jason investigates. He comes upon the apparent murder of Mr. Lowry but is knocked unconscious before he can aid.

Thus, begins a great mystery. It is neither obvious nor easy to determine who did what to whom and for what reason.

Jason is an unlikely investigator, but with the help of his private investigator, Sammy Raj, and a few other unlikely participants he seeks justice for Mr. Lowry.

Mr. Lowry comes from money, lots of money, from land investments all over southern Florida. His father was “Bull” Lowry. Apparently, the nickname was more than just a convenient shortening of a name. “Bull” spent a lot of time spreading his genes among many women in the area. The speculation is that there are upwards of 20 offspring that do not fall under the legitimate inheritance laws. Then the story gets more convoluted with the illegitimate children and their mothers getting involved. Read the rest of this entry »

Cry for Justice by Ralph Zeta

Cry for JusticeReviewed by Douglas R. Cobb

Successful Palm Beach lawyer Jason Justice specializes in divorce cases involving prenuptial agreements. Even when the agreement seems iron-clad, he can often find a loophole in it and ensure that justice is done. He’s managed to survive and thrive even under the difficult economic conditions and times America is going through. But, can he survive a case that’s brought to him by his girlfriend (Nora), whose friend’s (Amy Kelly’s) mother has been scammed out of millions of dollars, and was possibly murdered by the same man? The stunning, suspenseful, and page-turning debut novel, Cry For Justice, by Ralph Zeta will keep you reading until late into the night, and you won’t want to put it down.

Life is pretty sweet for Jason Justice. He drives a Porsche, dates hot women, and lives in a yacht he bought from his father’s estate after his father died of cancer. He still owes money on the yacht, but it is well worth it to him to have kept it in the family, and he has plans to travel with Nora on it to the Bahamas. Nora was one of his father’s attending physicians two years before.

Gun-shy in part because of his own parents’ miserable marriage, and in part from what he’s seen as a divorce lawyer, Justice is very jaded about marriage, and feels that most marriages are travesties. He and Nora have lasted longer together as a couple than anyone else Jason’s dated, and they have an agreement not to talk about marriage that both have held to and have seemed satisfied with.
