A contemporary murder mystery debut in a classic vein: introducing private eye Jim Guthrie in this gripping first crime novel by Rick Neumayer. When a Guatemalan groom's body is found on the backside after the Kentucky Derby, police are stymied by the distrust of immigrant workers. Then the victim's son makes the sleuth an offer he can't refuse, plunging Guthrie into an alien world of danger, violence, and beautiful women. Rick Neumayer is a fresh voice in American detective fiction and his Hotwalker novel is one you don't want to miss.
