  By Sibella Giorello

If you enjoy mysteries that keep you on the edge of your seat, while you read, this is definitely a book for you!! I was spellbound with all the twists and turns of the plot of Sibella's new book in her series from the "Raleigh Harmon Novels".  The suspense  gives the readers the mystery, intrigue and excitement they enjoy. What an outstanding ability Sibella has, to write about so many different subjects with such knowledge. She has certainly done her research well. The reader is brought into a world of crime and has you attempting to help Raleigh solve the crime in the dark realm of horse racing  and gambling. I was intrigued by the things that I learned as I read this book. Forensic facts were addressed, which I had no awareness of. So , in addition to keeping me glued to the book , with all the mysterious happenings, I learned as I read. 
The main character, Raleigh, lives a double life, as an FBI agent.The subject of the consequences of lying is examined, to protect someone you love is a theme throughout the story. Raleigh becomes your best friend, someone you want to help and save from harm, Sibella has the talent of such exquisite character description, that you feel part of the story. 

Synopsis: Raleigh is sent undercover to a thoroughbred horse track . Someone is fixing the races , however, who is it???Then horses started dying  and her own life is threatened! There is something bigger and more sinister going on and she must discover what it is. Entering the scene, is Special Agent Jack, a guy who changes from friend to antagonistic in a heartbeat!
