I feel compelled to offer some preconditions on this review. The worst thing to do, of course -- making excuses before you've said word one about the text itself. But here goes.

First of all, I don't naturally gravitate toward mystery genre books. Now, I'm a sucker for a sci-fi or horror genre book, cliches and all . . . but mystery cliches cause a lot of eye rolling for me. (There's several in Triple Cross, but they come with the territory, so I can't find fault for their use.)

Second, I know not

While the horse details were dead on, for the most part, and other details were well researched, I personally didn't care for the story. I have read two of Ehrman's titles and simply can't warm up to the main character. I don't search out mystery novels but I do horse related novels. I'm going to have to say I'm skipping on this series from here on out. Also, I have a pet peeve about language and the use of more than necessary,in my opinion,trash talk.

An engaging read, especially if you live in the Louisville, Kentucky area, but not one of my favorites. If you're not familiar with the area (or the Kentucky Derby), you may frequently be lost.

“There’s something about being on the backside of a racetrack just before dawn that is truly magical--standing along the rail when the light’s just coming up, watching the horses move fluidly across the damp earth, their dark shapes silhouetted against a rainbow sky. You stand there, breathing in the clean air, listening to the steady primal rhythm of a galloping horse, and the rest of the world simply does not exist.” 0 likes
