Overview

The sudden death of a client leads private investigator Milan Jacovich (MY-lan YOCK-ovitich) and new associate Kevin “K.O.” O’Bannion behind the scenes at a harness racing track, where they find no shortage of odd characters, suspicious activities . . . and danger.

Did wealthy horse owner/driver Glenn Gallagher make one too many enemies in the competitive racing world at Northcoast Downs? (Certainly the track’s owner, chilly Chloe Markham, isn’t mourning his loss.) Or did someone involved with Gallagher’s investment firm want him dead?

Things get more complicated when Milan spots local mob boss Victor Gaimari at the funeral. Victor does have a legitimate investment business . . . but his henchman was seen lingering trackside at Northcoast Downs. Is there a connection?

Though eager to learn the P.I. business, K.O. still has trouble staying out of trouble. Assigned to dig up some dirt in the horse barns, he tangles with hot-tempered trainer Del Fiddler, who’s jealous of his flirtatious and curvaceous wife—and handy with a horse whip.

Another body turns up at the track, but the local sheriff’s office won’t share leads with a private investigator. Milan’s new flame, Cleveland police detective Tobe Blaine, can’t help; she’s out of her jurisdiction in Summit County.

Milan finally confronts the killer alone—and once again finds himself in deep trouble!
