Booklist: "When Steve Cline accepts his horse trainer father's invitation to spend two weeks at Churchill Downs as one of two caregivers for Kentucky Derby contender Gallant Storm, he looks forward to an idyllic respite from his normal duties as a barn manager in Maryland. Cline wouldn't be in his fourth crime mystery at the tender age of 23 if he weren't a magnet for trouble, however, and within days of arriving in Louisville, he has befriended a young woman who soon turns up dead. Quickly, Cline has become a target of both the police and a couple of thugs bent on maynhem. His attempts to find out why the young woman was killed lead him deep into the exclusive world of Bluegrass bluebloods, where he becomes increasingly at risk as he gets closer to uncovering a shameful secret. There is plenty of action here, all set against the excitement and pagentry of the build-up to America's greatest horse race. Neither race fans nor devotees of suspense will be disappointed." ~ Dennis Dodge for Booklist
