Like classic film noir such as The Big Sleep or The Maltese Falcon, Law and Disorder, written by author Charlene Newberg, explores the human condition as it simultaneously plumbs the inky depths of what mankind is capable of.
Angel Brewster, beautiful, strong yet sensitive. Is she a heroine, a victim, or both at the same time? Is deputy sheriff Jared McKinney her savior? Or is he, like her grandpa keeps insisting, part of a family of McKinney cheats who will just take advantage of her given time and the right opportunity? Angel's sexy sister Gemma stirs the pot, not to mention their Uncle Eben, who might or might not be involved in so many illegal operations it could take the villainous Lee Vander to bring him to some well-deserved justice. And Lee Vander himself has a tangled history with nearly all of the story's characters, even if they can't remember, or worse, refuse to remember.
Law and Disorder is a rollicking adventure set in a small town, but don't be fooled. The action and the up-close drama are not just full size, they leap off the pages with an intense vigor. Romance abounds amid the hazards, and Angel learns a lot more about herself than she was prepared for. Enjoy! For I certainly did.
