Editorial Reviews


" engaging tribute to the glory of Gloucester fishermen and the adventure of good lawyering... [Orlando] cleverly blurs the lines of good and evil to tease the reader, inevitably the good are very, very good and the evil are rotten. The fun lies in determining who is who." -- Massachusetts Lawyer's Weekly

"In The Bastard's Weapon, Joe wastes no time emotionally setting up the reader with the loss of Palermo's wife, Connie. Attorney John Palermo struggles as a single father to raise the two small children he and Connie spawned as he takes on the case of his nemesis, Captain Joe Amalfi of the Mio Mondo. Amalfi, rescued from the icy Atlantic after the Mio Mondo sinks with his crew of three still aboard, hires Palermo to win his claim against the insurance company. John seeks to solve the mystery of what transpired on the Mio Mondo as well save the homes of the widows and children of the men onboard. As Amalfi's emotional state deteriorates setting the stage for the courtroom drama, John realizes he has feelings for one of the widows he is representing." -- Ever Seen Magazine

"Orlando has written about what he knows and loves best: family values, trial lawyering, Gloucester fishermen and good Italian food. And he succeeds in making your senses tingle for each one. Not only is his latest novel an entertaining digression into the arduous and often dangerous lives of Gloucester fishermen and their families, but it offers a tantalizing invitation into the life of John Palermo, first-generation Sicilian, a fisherman's son and a dashingly eloquent trial attorney." -- Exhibit A Magazine
