Les Roberts has written another great book. I really enjoyed reading this, especially as Milan is confronting the fact that he is growing older and not able to do all the things he has done in the past. And his young associate, K. O., is developing also. I hope that Les Roberts keeps them coming.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This is my introduction to Les Roberts and his character Milan J
This is my introduction to Les Roberts and his character Milan Jacovich. I enjoyed his insights into the geography and culture of Cleveland and in this book his look at harness racing. With the aid of Dan S. Kennedy Roberts gives a view of what life is like for the workers in the shadows at a harness race track with the jealousies and rumors that probably goes on at all tracks.Was this review helpful?

The private detective Jacovich is a well-developed character and I look forward to going back and reading the whole series of books in which he is the main character. All of the characters seem to be real and are developed to the point that you become involved in their lives.
The story begins with a trip to the track with a millionaire client who is a horse owner and driver who dies in Milan’s arms. The son of this man asks Milan to investigate and see if there are anything unusual about his father’s death. Milan and his employee K.O. split up the work questioning the workers in the barn area of the track and the rich people that had contact with the decease. The investigation is entwined with the personal lives of the two investigators. A very good and enjoyable read.
I plan on looking up the previous books in this series and look forward to getting to know Milan better.
