Jate’s Boy is the fourth book in the Michael Butler Saga by Peter P. Sellers, a great read with a sophisticated plot and a strong conflict. It’s an enthralling story of intrigue, manipulation, and conspiracy. Sophia Butler is the American hotshot in horse harnessing, an icon in the industry. While her husband is serving five years for conspiracy, there are powerful men who want to use her for their own gain. The Governor sees her as the only one who can promote the New York State harness racing tracks. So, they offer a deal to her husband in jail to get Sophia to race at the Yonkers Raceway in New York in exchange for his freedom. On another front, her family of mobsters wants to use her fame to build a racing track in Iowa. Can Sophia accept the deal or will she allow herself to be manipulated?

Peter P. Sellers has the unusual ability to tell a riveting story, something that a good author must have. Sellers is, first and foremost, a great storyteller and he knows how to keep his audience hooked and focused on every word - from the very first page to the satisfying, cliffhanger ending. I marveled at both the pace and the intricacies of the plot, but character development was one of the elements that had me rooting for this author. Jate’s Boy is one of those rare books that kept me reading nonstop, completely entertained and satisfied. Great writing, punctuated by exciting and well-crafted dialogues; it is one of those books you finish without noticing when you even started it.
