About this title
SPEED TRAP is one good cop versus a whole town of bad cops.
SPEED TRAP is set in 1959 in a small south Georgia town, a place you can't avoid on your long road trip to Florida, and you'd better hope you only get a ticket when you get pulled over.
SPEED TRAP introduces Special Agent Cal Bocock, a handsome young investigator handpicked by the Governor of Georgia to bring down small town tyrant Earl "Boss" Griffin and his corrupt cops and gang of evil henchmen.
SPEED TRAP features Fancy Fontaine, a beautiful and mysterious lady in black who initially enchants Bocock at the funeral of a murder victim.
A veteran book editor calls SPEED TRAP a "suspenseful Southern gothic." A prolific author says Joey Ledford's "characters are vivid and powerful, and his plot is thoroughly believable and fast paced."

“As a journalist who covered traffic for years as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s “Lane Ranger” columnist, Joey Ledford headed for familiar ground for his first novel, SPEED TRAP. The book is set in a small south Georgia town in 1959 and involves dueling politicians, a tourist-unfriendly ticketing scheme and a murder mystery.” --Jennifer Brett, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“Congrats to Joey Ledford, a great Southern writer and journalist, for taking us back into the dark drama of rural Georgia in another age.” --Pulitzer Prize winning author Douglas A. Blackmon
“In his debut novel, the former Atlanta journalist has created a compelling murder mystery with a colorful cast of Southern characters who would be right at home in Deliverance or the Dukes of Hazard.” --Veteran book editor Don O’Briant
“His characters are vivid and powerful, and his plot is thoroughly believable and fast paced. The writing is polished and professional.” --Author Frank Cook
Joey Ledford began writing on an old typewriter at age 15, signing on with his hometown's weekly newspaper to cover high school sports. He graduated from the University of Tennessee, where he edited the daily student newspaper and was the top journalism graduate. From there, he did stints with United Press International and the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, covering stories as varied as the death of Elvis Presley, the retirement of Bear Bryant and the creation of a new federal holiday to honor civil rights icon Martin Luther King. He is married and is the father of two grown children. Speed Trap is first of a series, and more Cal Bocock Adventures are on the way.
