Description

When racehorse trainer Delbert "Shorty" Rogers is found dead in a stall at Caledonia Downs, Homicide Detective Campbell Young is drawn into the investigation. Add to the mix a lottery winner, an Internet mogul, a reclusive land baron, his voluptuous helpmate and twin bodyguards, an eccentric environmentalist, a cast of backstretch characters reminiscent of Damon Runyon, and the murder of a thoroughbred racehorse named Download, and the scene is set. The possibility that the deaths of Rogers and Download are unrelated makes Young’s task even more difficult. With the assistance of washed-up racetrack journalist Priam Harvey, Young sets out to solve the mysteries and bring the guilty to justice.
This is book #2 of the Campbell Young Mystery series. Book #1 is The Devil in Me (McClelland & Stewart, 2001).

Editorial Reviews

...Carpenter builds a worthy mystery, populated with characters that sometimes seem so real they could be your neighbours... Even if you don't care a whit about the racing world; Bright's Kill is a satisfying suspense story of the first order, with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing about the bad guys.

— Edmonton Journal

This complicated story keeps the reader's attention, building on its setting inside the world of horses.
