Dev Mallory is sent by the Boss to guard a race horse, Starcrossed, owned by Royalty, leading up to the big race, the biggest money race in history. There are a lot of sharps working the area and horse racing has an unsavory reputation.

First, someone drugs his liquor flask on the train coming in and when he wakes, his partner, female agent Tess O'Neill had been taken. Eventually he is told she will be killed if he doesn't poison the horse.

Then someone sets the stables on fire, killing Starcrosse

This is the summer I finish my weird western novel, so time to consume some westerns.

And sung talent, he is.
