Within the fiercely competitive world of horse racing which includes owners, trainers, vets, and jockeys, something has gone terribly wrong. As opening day approaches, one racehorse is poisoned, another has her leg crushed by a lead pipe and a third mysteriously disappears. Shock and horror grip the racing community as the message is simple: pay and your horses will not be touched. Despite all security efforts, the brutal killings continue.

In racing, a truly special horse may come along only once in a lifetime. Dan Morgan is an owner who has been waiting a long time; now it looks like he may just have it all in one wonderful horse named Aly Dancer. After an extortion scheme is hatched at the track, several horses are killed, and Aly Dancer could be next. Dan decides to pay off the extortionist, but at the same time, begins a search to find the monsters responsible. Dan joins up with AJ, a young hot walker, horse whisperer and more, to take on the system, protect Aly Dancer, and find the persons responsible for these heinous acts. But could this also put his life at risk?

Absolutely the best book I read in quite some time! Although this is not a classic mystery, spending a great amount of time determining who the bad guy are, it's a solid action-adventure-mystery filled with large doses intrigue. I quickly got caught up in the story and didn't want to stop reading. Bullet Work grabs you from the beginning and continues from there. In this book, the author gives the reader the chance to see the world of racing from a different side, the backside where everything is not all glamor and glitz. I found the cast of characters to be outstanding and the plot suspenseful and excellent. The author let the suspense continue to slowly build through each chapter to a thrilling end. Bullet work has it all: a great beginning, an excellent middle, and super ending. Very well done.
