Outpaced from the Gate
James Thackeray's career is wavering, his finances are in ruin, and his hopes for becoming a winning amateur jockey are slipping away. Still, when a hot tip turns into a cold body, Thackeray can't resist a look into who would dare do away with the esteemed Lord Croft.
Unfortunately Thackeray is in over his head, galloping toward a cloud of blackmail and corruption that is wafting dangerously close. If he moves fast enough, he still might have a shot at the winner's circlethat is, if someone doesn't take a shot at him first.
