Book Description


Fawcett: NYColumbine 1994 First edition, first printing, new/unread in flawless dustjacket.

The greatest jockey of all time, Bill Shoemaker moved in a world of fast horses, high living, and gorgeous, dangerous women. Now, in his fiction debut, Shoemaker draws on his experiences on and off the track to spin one of the most suspenseful and entertaining mysteries to appear in years. Stalking Horse is an odds-on favorite to win Shoemaker a huge and devoted readership. Colley Killebrew, the hero of Stalking Horse, was a jockey himself, one of the best in the business, until a race-fixing scandal got him barred from the track seven years before. But Colley blew more than his racing career - he also lost Francie Dorn, the irresistible redhead he loved. Colley wants Francie back and badly. So badly he'll even cut a deal with Raymond Starbuck the former track steward who destroyed his reputation. The deal works like this: Colley goes down to New Orleans to foul up a racetrack scam that a rich, sleek aristocrat named Remy Courville is running. If Colley can keep Remy and his unsavory cronies from muscling in on the old Magnolia Park track, Starbuck will give him ten thousand dollars and Francie Dorn's address. But Colley doesn't expect to run into Lea, Starbuck's leggy, blond daughter, who is as adept at seducing men as she is at blowing them away.... From the racetrack barns to the mansions of Los Angeles and the steamy plantations of New Orleans, Shoemaker guides us through an intricate tale that could only play out at the races. With Stalking Horse, the fabled jockey who triumphed in four Kentucky Derbies takes yet another winner across the finish line.
