LOS ANGELES - May 10, 2016 - PRLog -- There's a new author joining the ranks of top political thrillers … his name is Dennis Ricci. You're bound to hear a lot more about him in the near future. Especially when readers get ahold of his heralded novel, Perilous Judgment … it debuts May 17th, 2016.

Think political and legal thriller authors like David Baldacci … Robert Dugoni … Joel C. Rosenberg. Move over Tom Clancy. Forget the 'good reads' … here comes one of the best suspense thrillers in a while.

Ricci says Perilous Judgment is a 'political thriller' … call it what you want. You'll hold his book in the clutches of your hands … turning each page to find out what his lead character Judge Edward Lamport will do next … to see what you would do next … as Lamport wrestles with when … and how … does doing the right thing justify breaking the law.

It's more than a thrill ride. Ricci's Perilous Judgment immerses you in a whole new world as he propels you through the halls of power, justice, and the tension between law, retribution and mercy.

Endorsed by Bestselling Authors

Bestselling authors are already talking about it.

"A big story that pulls no punches and keeps you in its grasp until the final page. A masterful debut thriller." - Robert Dugoni, #1 Amazon and New York Times Bestselling Author of My Sister's Grave and Her Final Breath

"A new thriller writer joins the throng of Grisham, Patterson, Crichton, and Clancy. Ricci creates an intricate story that begs for an answer and leaves the reader breathless. What would you do if everything you held dear was at stake?" - DiAnn Mills, National Bestselling and Christy Award Winning Author

A Real Justice Thriller

Perilous Judgment's lead character Federal Judge Edward Lamport is no stranger to controversy and danger. He's under U.S. Marshal protection from two death threats. But when he receives a plea for help from a woman in his past, he faces a new kind of peril - one that involves his long-lost son, Carlos.

Carlos has discovered an international money-laundering scheme while working at a bank in Mexico. Now he's on the run from those who want him dead.

Having appealed to his Washington connections to get asylum for his son, and running into puzzling dead ends, Lamport finds himself caught between law and love … and takes matters into his own hands.

With only his faith in God to guide him, how far is he willing to venture into the dark recesses of political corruption to save his son?

"I believe real justice pursues restoration, not retribution," says author Dennis Ricci. "Perilous Judgment explores real justice for a federal judge who finds the laws he's sworn to defend will cost his son his life - unless he takes matters into his own hands. I'm grateful to Waterfall Press for bringing my story to readers everywhere."
