Wheel of Fortune by Theodore Jerome Cohen raises the bar for aspiring writers of police fiction. NYPD Detectives Lou Martelli and Sean O'Keeffe join forces with the FBI to take on the Lupinacci mob family, as two seemingly unrelated cases begin to focus on a single prime suspect. Staying below the radar, the two agencies pair some of their best operatives to formulate and enact a sting against a mob boss complicit in multiple murders, arson, and a long list of lesser, but still serious, criminal activities. Once again, Martelli places himself in harm's way to Serve and Protect the innocent, but this time he may have bitten off a bit too much. Outnumbered by armed mobsters, relieved of his weapon, and marched deep into a remote wooded area, Martelli faces the possibility that he may have reached the end of the line.
Wheel of Fortune is a captivating tale of good versus evil played out on a grand scale. The story line is almost too involved to be wholly fictional, and much of the detail is indeed documented fact. As Cohen's fans have learned to expect, the story is liberally sprinkled with links to relevant additional information of interest. As Cohen's fans have also come to expect, the story is fascinating and fresh, as if taken from the headlines of today's newspapers. Cohen's 'Detective Martelli' stories are always great entertainment, and Wheel of Fortune is sure to delight readers, whether they be new to Martelli or seasoned veterans of his exploits. Add one more mark to Cohen's 'winner' column.
