Product Overview

Winner of the 2007 Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Mystery/Suspense. Why have some of America's best jockeys begun to intentionally lose races? And was the death of 92-year-old Bernard Glockner, Chicago's oldest active bookmaker, suicide or murder?

Those are the questions facing Matt O'Conner, a Chicago-based columnist for a national horse racing newspaper. Soon, Matt is deep into an investigation of what he believes are racers whose outcomes have been manipulated for the benefit of a few.

Helping Matt in this puzzling venture are horse trainer Maggie Collins, Dave Zimmer, and a professional gambler known as 'The Fount" for his reputation as an encyclopedic source of information. Who is the brilliant sociopath behind these crimes?
