The Execution of Justice...

The Execution of Justice by Michael Phelps

I was so honored when Mr. Phelps asked me personally to review his book.
This is the debut story of Mike Walsh, a patrol officer in the Indianapolic Police Department and it introduces us to what will be a series of Mike Walsh detective novels.

As we follow Officer Walsh through the story he gets promoted to Detective in the Robbery and Homicide division and gets partnered with his former mentor Sergeant Jack Lovell. I really enjoyed learning through Mike Walsh, the steps to solving a crime. Very cool!
This isn't just a Detective Novel..and that's what I really like about it. The author really gives a detailed look at what life is like for those who serve in the Police Department both on and off duty.
As we read, we watch in vivid detail as Walsh's marriage fails and he turns to alcohol and eventually sobers up and leaves his job. The development of Mike Walsh is done very well, and I really appreciated the insight it gave me of day to day life for a police officer.
I really look forward to seeing what happens next in the Mike Walsh story.

Dear Amy,

Thank you so much for your indepth Review and kind words.

I will count that as a TEN STARS (just kidding) Revfiew. It is one of the BEST my novel has received, and I appreciate it very much.

You will receive a copy of "THE JOCKEY'S WIDOW" hot off the press.

As one Air Force Veteran to another, Thank You; and I salute your husband who is still serving our country in the USAF.

Best Wishes,
Michael Phelps
