Sent undercover to a thoroughbred horse track, Raleigh takes on a
double life to find out who’s fixing the races. But when horses start
dying and then her own life is threatened, Raleigh realizes something
bigger-and more sinister-is ruining Emerald Downs. Yet she’s never felt more alone.
one contact with the FBI is Special Agent Jack Stephanson, a guy who
seems to jump from antagonistic to genuine friend depending on the time
of day. And she can’t turn to her family for support. They’re off-limits
while she’s undercover, and her mother isn’t speaking to her anyway,
having been confined to a mental hospital following a psychotic
breakdown. Adding insult to her isolation, Raleigh’s fiance wants them
to begin their life together — now –– precisely when she’s been ordered not to be herself.
just days left before the season ends, Raleigh races to stop the
killing and find out who’s behind the track’s trouble, all the while
trying to determine if Jack is friend or foe, and whether marrying her
fiance will make things better or worse.
