Michael Phelps is a writer with a background in law enforcement and private investigations and it certainly shows in his newest detective novel. Jockey's Justice is filled with real blow by blow investigative work, the day to day grind, witness interviews, and actual legwork that an investigator goes through to solve a crime or at least find evidence to prove their client not-guilty. The story begins with a cold case: a jockey beaten to death eight years earlier. Suddenly, for no apparent reason his widow is charged with the crime. Mike and his assistant fly to Kentucky to begin questioning people who knew both the widow and the murdered Jockey. Danger and excitement ensue along the way but basically this is a police procedural. If you enjoy shows like Law and Order, you'll probably like The Jockey's Justice.
