There's a new kid on the block. And can he write! Suffering from jet lag and unable to sleep, I started Nick Santora's first novel, Slip & Fall, at 3:00 am and didn't put it down until I had finished it at 8:30 am. Good book.

Bobby Principe is a lawyer with scruples. He believed he could make a good living for himself and Janine, the wife he adored, by playing the game by the rules. Law is most important to him and he felt he could make a difference by being honest and aboveboard. How wrong can a person be? Ending up tied to the mob, he gets himself in the kind of bad trouble that could lead to being fitted for a pair of cement shoes before being dumped in the harbor. Slip & Fall starts off running and keeps up the same pace for the whole of the story. If anything, tension mounts by the page.

Nick Santora's novel is the first to be published by Borders, who are selling it exclusively. Santora is a good choice for this honor as he has an impressive resumé. He is the writer and co-producer of Prison Break and has also written for The Sopranos, Law & Order, and The Guardian, in addition to multiple feature films. He practiced law before making his living by writing, and has used his legal skills to craft a memorable book. Don't miss it.
