And they're back! Shifty Lou Anderson, close-up magician and horseplayer supreme, and all his track cronies - the wiseguys and hard knockers who follow the racing circuit with a devotion that is almost religious in its intensity.
It's the Hollywood Park summer race meet, the warm-up for the Del Mar season, and life is sweet - a carefree series of one-liners and daily doubles in pursuit of the right odds. Until Shifty spots her.
All leg and curly hair, Megan Starbuck is the woman of his dreams. It doesn't hurt that she also knows her horses. And it isn't long before Shifty is plotting to make the two of them a private daily double. Trouble is, the lady just keeps vanishing.
His eighth outing into mystery and mayhem finds the ever romantic and always gallant Shifty falling in love again. It also finds him moving from the peaceable kingdom of touts and handicappers into a glitterati world of celebrity movie stars and power-hungry millionaires whose Futurity bets have less to do with thoroughbred racing than with America's political destiny.
Against this backdrop of duplicity, double-dealing, and murder, does love stand a chance?
