Ferrigno's a good guy as well as a fine writer (he's local to me).

If it's the one I'm thinking of, I liked THE HORSE LATITUDES right up till the ending, which I found unbelievable.

  Robert Ferrigno's first novel, THE HORSE LATITUDES, from 1990, could be
  labeled as sports noir, since the bad guys in the book are two incredibly
  stupid bodybuilders, who talk about their muscles and protein and stuff all
  the time.

  I seem to remember Duane Swierczynski saying good words about this book,
  maybe in his blog. It is pretty good.
