Summary

A murder investigation leads Du Pré into the cutthroat world of illegal horse racing

Gabriel Du Pré’s aunt Pauline has burned through more than her share of husbands, so it’s no surprise when she shows up in Toussaint complaining that the latest one, Badger, has run off. Du Pré, the fiddler and sometimes deputy, agrees to go looking for her man and finds him shot, execution-style, in the wilds of the Montana countryside. A chat with his contacts at the FBI reveals that Badger, a small-time drug smuggler, had been working for them since his last arrest. Pauline’s husband was bait, but the big fish got away.

The last lead was to a cabal of wealthy gamblers who pass their time racing horses in the barren Montana brush. To infiltrate their tight-knit syndicate, Du Pré goes undercover, lining up his own horse and jockey. He must tread lightly - horses are not the only things these men shoot.

the story could be taken out of today's headlines

the continuing saga of Gabriel Dupree and his family and friends although you could read this as a standalone I hardly recommend starting with the first book you'll enjoy every single story in many things within each story will make sense as they relate to some things in the past . if you're not read them yet all I can say is lucky you enjoy the reading...

First class series, characters and setting

The characters in this series are as likable and fun to go on an adventure with as Captain Aubrey and Stephen Maturin. Like Patrick O'Brian Peter Bowen can tell a great story.
