Synopsis

Why are some of America's best and most respected jockeys suddenly losing big races? And who would kill a ninety-two-year-old bookmaker? ''McEvoy has created a winning protagonist in Chicago turf writer Matt O'Connor, who has an abundance of friends in mostly low places and his finger firmly on the pulse of the national horseracing scene.... [He] is dead-on in his descriptions and accounts of Thoroughbred racing. He also gives us characters we can care about and suspense enough to make the blood race like a stakes-winning sprinter.'' - Booklist starred review ''Horse racing has always attracted a wide range of colorful characters, and McEvoy portrays them all with an obvious affection and a sharp eye, from jockeys, trainers and touts to fans, newsmen and suckers.... charm, racing expertise and a willingness to go the distance that will carry the reader all the way to the finish line.''
