by Richard Wormser
Introduction by Robert J. Randisi
Four hard-boiled novellas of crime and intrigue around the Sport of Kings.”These are perfect reading for anyone who enjoys hard-boiled characters and race track settings. Sit back, relax and start reading—and enjoying.”—Robert J. Randisi
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 the nickel-platted death secured in his wide right fist—in the process.
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 slid to the edge of your seat as the ponies and Van Eyck both give a thrill ride from wire to wire!
First time in book form.
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.
