What's Super Bowl Sunday without a little gambling party in Saratoga Springs? By bedtime, private detective Charlie Bradshaw's a busy man. The bash has been robbed, Charlie hasn't recovered a stolen painting and a grocer lies dead behind his cash register.
The names of five heavy gamblers promise to hold the key to the murder...and maybe much more. Charlie's investigation veers toward terror as it twists through a netherworld of unpleasant surprises.
"Dobyns is a graceful, assured writer with felicity of word and phrase. His characters spring to life, and he captures the charm of Saratoga Springs, both past and present." (The Washington Post)

7 1-hour cassettesFrom Publishers Weekly:
A group of mysteries in one, Saratoga Bestiary builds up smoothly to a truly savage ending. First, a painting of a famous racehorse is stolen, and private investigator Charlie Bradshaw (in his fifth outing) is hired to deliver the ransom money. The painting isn't returned, and Bradshaw, despite being asked to desist, investigates the theft. A shopkeeper he likes is murdered, and he plunges into the caseagain, unasked. He is, however, requested to investigate the robbery of friends during a Superbowl gambling party. And it's then that the story's theme, gambling, draws together many different people and clues. Busy with all the investigations, Bradshaw is always half a step behind his suspects. But this keeps the story engaging and the reader well-entertained.
