Race into Murder

At a racetrack in southern California, Jeff Frazier is a thoroughbred trainer whose dream is about to become a reality. His wife’s home-bred colt has the talent and determination to place him in top contention for some of the richest races in the country.

Their world is rocked, however, when the future of the stunning young horse not only threatens their relationship, but becomes the catalyst for chaos among the close-knit group of horsemen whose livelihoods depend on racing.

When a well-known jockey is murdered, a homicide detective finds everything is not as it seems. No one is above suspicion. The racing community is on edge, as paranoia becomes contagious, and lies replace loyalty. When circumstances from the past begin to dictate actions of the present, turmoil is the result. Through it all, the races continue.

Written with the knowledge of a racetrack insider, Race into Murder is an intricately woven mystery that will keep the reader wondering until the end.
