AbstractHistoryArchive Description

From cover blurb: 'Joe Bedeli had a job to do - kill a guy for five thousand dollars. A jockey in the fourth race. Joe made only two mistakes - before his last and fatal - the jockey he was to kill wasn't riding the horse Joe had been told he would be. So another jock died instead. The second mistake was that Joe couldn't resist a long shot bet. He backed Laughing Boy in the same race - and that brought Mike Dresser in on the case. Laughing Boy won and there was only one bettor. Mike Dresser followed the lead and found Joe dead. From then on the racket began to unfold. Someone was fixing it so that syndicate bettors just couldn't lose. But how was the question. Doping? That angle was being covered by the loveliest racetrack analyst Mike had met, Ann Temple. Here was a dame that knew about several sciences - one of which Mike found she really excelled in. When he found out what else Ann knew, Mike was too hot - even for a racetrack!'
