“These are perfect reading for anyone who enjoys hard-boiled characters and racetrack settings. Sit back, relax and start reading—and enjoying.” —Robert J. Randisi, founder of the Private Eye Writers of America.

Four hard-boiled novellas of crime and intrigue involving the Sport of Kings.

Known from Saratoga to Belmont and throughout the racing circuit, Chief Van Eyck keeps the bookies and fix games in check—whether using a little strong-arm, or, when necessary, the nickel-plated death carried in his shoulder holster. And Van Eyck is never above picking up a few greenbacks on the side, thanks to an inside tip or two from the jockey club. Grab a stool, order a strong one and slide to the edge of your seat as the ponies and Van Eyck both give a thrill ride from wire to wire!

With an introduction by Robert J. Randisi, author of the Rat Pack, Joe Keogh, Miles Jacoby, Nick Delvecchio and Henry Po mystery series; founder of the Private Eye Writers of America.
