Publisher's Description

After the FBI suspends her for bending its rules, Special Agent Raleigh Harmon is looking for a chance to redeem her career and re-start her life.

Sent undercover to a thoroughbred horse track, Raleigh takes on a double life to find out whoÆs fixing the races. But when horses start dying and then her own life is threatened, Raleigh realizes something biggerùand more sinisterùis ruining Emerald Meadows.

SheÆs never felt more alone.

Her one contact with the FBI is Special Agent Jack Stephanson, a guy who seems to jump from antagonistic to genuine friend depending on the time of day. And she canÆt turn to her family for support. TheyÆre off-limits while sheÆs undercover, and her mother isnÆt speaking to her anyway, having been confined to a mental hospital following a psychotic breakdown. Adding insult to her isolation, RaleighÆs fiancΘ wants them to begin their life togetherùnowùprecisely when sheÆs been ordered not to be herself.

With just days left before the season ends, Raleigh races to stop the killing and find out whoÆs behind the trackÆs trouble, all the while trying to determine if Jack is friend or foe, and whether marrying her fiancΘ will make things betterùor worse.

Raleigh is walking through the darkest night sheÆs faced, searching for a place where the stars shine bright.

Publishers Weekly

Christy Award–winner Giorello arrives with the fifth in the Raleigh Harmon series, (after The Mountains Bow Down) which brings some closure to angst the protagonist feels about her mentally ill mother and overbearing fiancé. FBI agent Harmon, who was disciplined for stealing evidence, tries to redeem herself on assignment, but is forced to live a double life as she goes undercover in a horse race–fixing scandal. When horses die at the race track, she learns that the death of the animals is only a by-product of a more evil plot. Special Agent Jack Stephanson appears to play a lesser role, but the reader finds out he’s with Raleigh in ways she never imagined throughout the story. Giorello’s writing is poignant, concrete, and humorously descriptive yet sincere: “Crabby from salt bloat and layers of big fat lies, I grabbed my purse from the Ghost [her car] and stomped toward the track’s private entrance.” Research on geology, horse racing, and law enforcement, is vividly on display throughout the story, adding to Giorello’s reputation as a pro and a shining star. Agent: Brian Peterson. (July) 2012 Reed Business Information
