    A dead hitchhiker, empty canisters found at the bottom of several trucks, and the murder of a harmless mechanic are the bizarre events that lead ex-jockey Freddie Croft to suspect that his transport company, Driving Force, is involved in drug smuggling, or something far worse.

    Dick Francis is hands down the best mystery writer. This book offers intriguing characters and a well developed plot. Then again, all of his books do. Simon Prebble brings it all together with his engrossing style.

    No one really notices that a certain horse race might have been fixed until Matt O’Connor, a Chicago-based columnist for a national racing newspaper, gets a call from Moe Kellman, a horse-owning acquaintance. Kellman’s question for Matt: Was the death of 92-year-old Bernard Glockner, Chicago’s oldest active bookie, suicide or murder? Glockner was Kellman’s late uncle, and Kellman, a man familiar with the Chicago mob, wants Matt to check it out.

    This book, part 2 of a series I believe, is full of fascinating characters from the world of gambling and horse racing. A very clever plot and keeps the pages turning fast. Love the "little furrier"

    What happens when a young Wall Street investment banker spends a small fortune to have lunch with Warren Buffett? He becomes a real value investor. In this fascinating inside story, Guy Spier details his career from Harvard MBA to hedge fund manager. But the path was not so straightforward. Spier reveals his transformation from a Gordon Gekko wannabe, driven by greed, to a sophisticated investor who enjoys success without selling his soul to the highest bidder.

    Guy Spier says: "Malk Williams does a superb job."
    "Great bio and life philoshophy"

    This book is more of a personal bio and explanation of a philosophy on life rather than an investment tome. As such it was thoroughly enjoyable. Very candid and personal account

    I just finished this 4th book in the series. Loved each one. A strong main and supporting characters make each one enjoyable. The author writes in a similar vein as Dick Francis, but his plots are based around Chicago, IL. Looking forward to his latest work
