Racino by Peter P. Sellers is the third book in The Michael Butler Saga, following its predecessors, Vernon Fix and Saratoga Called. In this installment, we pick up in the world of harness racing with Michael Butler, who is pulled from a relative calm within his own horse stable when his in-laws, entangled in a sect of East Coast organized crime, are securing a newly groomed generation of the Tanzini crime family into the fold. Butler, having already been hit previously with the consequences of the connection, has been working to rebuild his relationship with his wife, Sophia, whose devotion to her family forces Butler to consider the possibility that she might be involved in a money laundering scheme.
Racino by Peter P. Sellers starts out with a bolt from the gate and doesn't slow down in this action-packed crime thriller. The detail Sellers imparts of the realm of harness racing is extraordinary. I actually live in the UK and have often watched the Traveler community as they trained with their horses on suburban streets in preparation for their (illegal) sulky-races. Initially, my curiosity of a sport I knew absolutely nothing about is what prompted me to read Racino, but it's the story crafting and Sellers' skill as a writer of intrigue that kept me turning the pages. The dialogue is authentic and the descriptions of people, atmosphere, and both sides of the racing world - honorable and the dishonorable underbelly that, truthfully, keeps people betting - are top notch. Luckily, readers don't have to wait to find out how Michael Butler fares as the final installment of the series, Jate's Boy, is already out.
