New Novel by Former Judge REELFOOT KILLINS is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jan 17, 2017

A gruesome double murder and the trial of a suspect who might be headed to death row consumes a community for a decade. Readers can follow the action from an anonymous tip through the process of Justice in a new book, expected to be released soon by Dog Ear Publishing. 'Reelfoot Killins' centers on the murders of a drug dealer and a well-respected businesswoman. They don't seem to have any obvious connection, and the motive for the murders isn't apparent, but their brutal, execution-style slayings on Reelfoot Lake in northwest Tennessee make it clear their deaths were no accident. An anonymous tip leads to the arrest of two brothers who are local duck hunting and fishing guides. The case seems to be a slam-dunk because of the pair's criminal history, but the suspects seem to think they've got Justice on their side and act accordingly. There may be more to the crimes than meets the eye. Readers follow the characters through several states and a world away in war-torn Iraq. Told primarily from the point of view of the veteran trial judge, the story reveals the murders and the ripple effect they have on Judge Jim Gordon, the suspects, the attorneys and the entire community. In the end, events lead the now-retired judge to a surprising viewpoint he chooses to reveal on national television. The book's twists and turns take readers on a thrill ride that takes its inspiration from the controversy of the death penalty and everything that it entails. Joe G. Riley wrote this novel from the perspective of a judge, made easier thanks to his 26 years on the bench. He was a trial judge for 18 years near Reelfoot Lake in Lake and Dyer Counties in Tennessee, trying several capital cases and imposing the death penalty in murder cases. He served as an appellate court judge for almost eight years, writing and participating in numerous death penalty opinions. Riley is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Tennessee and an honors graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Law. He and his wife, Connie, have been married for 47 years. They have three sons and five grandchildren. The retired judge is an avid waterfowl hunter and outdoorsman, as are his sons.
