After serving sixteen years as the elected Constable of Tarrant County, Texas, Jinx Porter has four years to go before he can retire with a pension. However, the fifty-year-old veteran law enforcement official has a competitor this time, a very well funded junior college student Rudy Castro who has no experience in the field at all.

Jinx worries about losing but goes about his job while his girlfriend Reserve Deputy Raven has two problems to contend with. Prince Ivan Balough of the Gypsies has a contract on her for a slight and her beloved Jinx has been cheating with another woman. What is a girl to do? Simple: eliminate the threat to one's life and gain revenge on her former lover by taking away what is most cherished by him.

CONSTABLE'S RUN is an exciting character driven police procedural (perhaps more like a sheriff procedural). The story line engages the reader in a humorous way from the start especially with the constables doing their job. Raven is a delightful heroine and Jinx acts like a beleaguered individual lost at every turn. Though the Gypsy subplot never really adds the suspense that one would expect of a death threat, fans will relish Laura Moore's strong tale starring a wonderful champion.
