I have not read a traditional murder mystery in quite a while, and it’s always nice to break away from what I normally read to explore what’s out there. I’m glad I picked Race Into Murder by Karen Black, not only does this book have a mystery unraveling in it, it also has a wealth of knowledge about horse racing.
Each character in Race Into Murder is well developed and under the reader’s suspicion on who committed murder. As the story unfolds, the tensions between the characters grow, giving a wonderful edginess that feels real.
I give Race Into Murder 4 out of 5 Stars, and recommend you getting your copy today.
