Jason Rich is suspended from the bar and off the wagon. He finds himself totally drunk and hears the police coming to arrest him. Although he isn’t sure why, he throws his new gun in the lake. Tyson Cade, the meth king of Sand Mountain, has been gunned down, and Jason only vaguely remembers being at the scene. The problem is that Cade’s last words said Jason was the one who shot him. The third novel in the Jason Rich series starts out with plenty of suspense. Rich Justice, by bestselling author Robert Bailey is unputdownable. The evidence against Jason is circumstantial, but the prosecutor is sure he will get a conviction. Shay Lankford, the previous prosecutor and friend of Jason is his advisory attorney, since he is representing himself, which most are sure is a mistake. The Tonidandels are acting as bodyguards since Cade’s successors are out to kill Jason.

Bailey is known for his excellent novels that are set in small towns in Alabama. They seem real and readers feel that they are actually there. His writing is so good that most readers will want to pick up his next novel as soon as it comes out because he has introduced believable characters that are relatable.

One thing to remember about this novel is that it seems to be a continuation of Rich Blood and Rich Waters, the preceding novels in the series, giving away the dénouement of both. So it is very important to read the previous novels first. They are very good novels, so that isn’t a real problem.

All told, readers should read the three novels in order, but won’t want to miss this one. Bailey has become a favorite author and most readers won’t want to miss anything he writes.
