Irreverent Jack Doyle has worn many hats, one or two blown off by his irrepressible temper. Jack's mid-life career has been shaped by the world of thoroughbred horse racing and dark deeds therein. So it's no surprise when two FBI agents pressure him to identify an animal activist who is carrying out "mercy killings" of retired race horses. Plus two Chicago senior citizens are being threatened by an imperious Internet millionaire intent on owning their beloved horse. Then a call comes from Ireland where the life of Jack's friend Niall Hanratty, the noted bookmaker, is under attack. Meanwhile Doyle's nemesis Harvey Rexroth, the rapacious media mogul Jack helped put into federal prison, enlists a fellow inmate, a Mob-connected attorney, to have Jack killed. Fast tracking, Jack visits vet schools while juggling pieces of investigations near home and traveling twice to Ireland to find Hanratty's enemy. Meanwhile the vicious contract killer is, all unknown, tracking Jack... John McEvoy, a former editor and executive columnist for thoroughbred horse racing's "Bible," Daily Racing Form, is the author of six mystery novels published by Poisoned Pen Press, as well as four non-fiction books. He and his wife Judy live in Evanston, IL. http: //
