Fire Horse by Bill Shoemaker

Bill Shoemaker, the greatest jockey of all time, made a smashing fiction debut with his first novel, Stalking Horse, starring jockey-turned-sleuth Coley Killebrew. Now Coley is back, and this time hes up against the toughest odds hes ever faced. It all starts when Johnny Rousseau, Coleys partner in the Horses Neck Bar and Grill, finds himself saddled with a little problem named Paula Dresner. Gorgeous, rich, and spoiled rotten, Paula has Johnny twisted around her manicured little finger -- but hes not too love-blind to see that shes gotten herself mixed up in some very suspicious business. Johnny cant figure out whether Paulas trouble has to do with her father, Wilton Dresner, the ultra-conservative political pundit, or with her creepy brother Neil, whos left a trail of bad checks in Vegas. He enlists his old pal Coley to find out. Paulas trail leads Coley to a peculiar passel of racetrack photos, a foul-mouthed, washed-up jockey with secrets to keep, some cut-rate hoodlums making nocturnal shipments of high-priced thoroughbreds, and one very dead body. And then theres the surprising interest in the case evinced by one Raymond Starbuck, the man who once upon a time put Coley out of business as a jockey, and who just happens to be the protective father of Coleys beautiful girlfriend, Lea. Now, with the help -- and sometimes the hindrance -- of Lea and Starbuck, Coley begins to put the pieces together. As he does, things get hotter and hotter. Its a fire than may consume some of the finest thoroughbreds in the country -- and Coley, too.
