About the Book

John Giordano is the former associate US attorney who has already prosecuted five New York crime families in the trial of the century when he is recruited by the president to run for the Senate. But just as he thinks life is going according to plan, Giordano receives a visit from his former lover, Paula Fasano, the granddaughter of a Mafia Don with whom he had a secret love affair thirty-five years earlier.

Paula is accused of murdering her husband and wants Giordano to defend her. Despite receiving discouragement from the powers behind his candidacy, John takes the case, believing Paula is innocent. After alienating his two most ardent supporters, Giordano is pitted against the DA in a riveting courtroom confrontation that determines Paula’s fate and his quest for the Senate seat. As Giordano fears Paula will be found guilty, he must question the legal and political system he has spent his life believing in and defending. Now only time will tell if love will be strong enough to bind two people destined to be together, despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles standing in their way.

The Litigator’s Wife is a tale of murder, deceit, betrayal, and revenge as an attorney risks everything to defend the woman he loves.

After retirement, he began a second career as an author, and through a long battle with cancer created yet another page turner. John passed away in 2015 and leaves behind a legacy of courage, creativity, and most of all wonderful memories for his wife, daughters, grandchildren and friends.
