Robert R. Principe, Esq., Attorney at Law, finally has his own business. He just learns from his wife, Janice that they are going to have a baby. He thought they were going to wait until they were financially set.

Jackie Masella, cousin to Robert, is a labor negotiator and consultant for the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America – that is what everyone in the neighborhood would confess, when in reality he is a thief, cook, gangster and wise guy.

Robert has serious stomach problems, leaving him often with stomach attacks that are related to stress and anxiety. He keeps it to himself not even telling his wife, Janice. She is his biggest supporter and fan. They met while he was still in law school. There is nothing he would not do for her until the day he has to lie then feels as if he has really disappointed her. When he has a break-down in court, things take a turn for Rob. He turns to Jackie in hopes of gaining some extra money. Of course with Jackie things are not as honestly done as with Robert, and in no time Robert is involved in a money making scheme that could cost him dearly. He falsely confides to Janice that he won a huge case, something he hates doing. Janice tells his family and they all give him a celebration. When things turn to a sour note for Robert and everything breaks like humpty dumpty’s egg, it is Janice who understands all the pressure he is under from many family members. No matter how terrible Robert feels with the outcome of everything, sometimes the love of a good woman can make things a bit better in life.

Slip and Fall is one of those stories that involve the reader in every scene, in every embodiment of the lives of the characters. There were moments I was so caught up in Robert and Janice, and their relationship, along with his family that I often felt as if I knew each of them. They instill human traits, and Robert shows strengths and weaknesses that make this thriller fantastic. Nick Santora takes clever characters, creates a plot that spins until the end, formulating a page-turner hard to put down. The dialogue, the episodes with Robert and his dad, especially the ending, were remarkably awesome.
