Racing at Virginia's beautiful Colonial Downs turns into a nightmare for jockey Nikki Latrelle. A sociopath is selling diet cocktails...and killing jockets who struggle to make racing weight. To make matters worse, Nikki nad her exercise friend Lorna hear strange noises echoing in the nighttime woods, and a burned body turns up on the road outside the track.
Are all these events related? Nikki's unease turns to dismay when bad-boy Bobby Duvayne mesmerizes young Lorna with his raw sexuality and a dangerous supply of drugs. A hidden meth lab, an old family secret, a body buried years ago in the woods, and Lorna's sudden disappearance pull Nikki into a race against death.
An exciting new racing mystery from the Agatha and Macavity Award-nominated author of Full Mortality!
