Six years ago, private investigator Sid Halley retired. He'd been harassed, beaten, shot, even lost a hand--enough was enough. For the sake of his wife and new daughter, he gave up that life, and he thought nothing would ever lure him back into the game.
He thought wrong.
Sir Richard Stewart, chairman of the racing authority, begs Sid to investigate a series of dodgy races. Sid refuses. Then Sir Richard is found dead under suspicious circumstances. And then a man with an Irish accent contacts Sid, telling him to deliver a whitewashed report about the suspected race-fixing...or else.
At first Sid ignores these warnings. But as the intimidation tactics escalate--and his own family comes under threat--Sid realizes he must meet his enemy head-on...or he might pay the ultimate price for his refusal.
