Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
In this 4th book in the series, Drew Nolan heads to the horse races at Santa Anita Park, and the funeral of a man he's never met. At the grave's edge he meets a beautiful Hispanic woman who let's on that the dead man died by no accident... he was murdered.

Nolan's day at the races is no walk in the park. Conmen, jockeys, horse thieves, killers, the FBI... think Nolan can leave this alone? No way. More

About Charles Bechtel

Spring Lake, North Carolina, April, 1953, fourth day, five minutes past midnight (thus late for my parents’ anniversary, which sets a standard for all such events from then on.)

a long while back, when colleges offered to improve human beings attending their classes, not dedicate themselves to the function of making a person employable. Ahh, the good old days.
Undergraduate degree: In English from a State college in Glassboro, NJ, that changed its name to Rowan University when Mr. Rowan gave it a huge wad of cash.

Master degree:
In English from Temple University in 1996, which is where I got to learn exactly what I needed to know from David H. Bradley, the author of a fine book, “The Chaneysville Incident” *among others) which I recommend reading. Otherwise, graduate school for writers is a waste of time and money.

I married to the finest woman on Earth, by accounts of many others more than myself: Manuela.

I married once before, but for practice. It lasted a mere sixteen months.

Manuela brought with her two wonderful young ladies, Elizabeth (Baby Beth) and Manuela (Meme), who each in turn delivered into my life young ladies of inestimable worth: Sky (b. 2003) Lucy (b. 2007) and Mia (b. 2008.) Though I give to each huge chunks of my heart, doing so has increased that heart’s size.

Work History:
Let’s say I worked, and have enjoyed no occupation more than Educator. My students put their trust in me; I put my faith in them. Pretty much always works out.

What I do for fun:
Everything. If it is not fun, I quickly stop doing it. (see Work, above)

Writing Philosophy:
Make sense by appealing to the senses.

Review by: Darlene Formanek on July 11, 2013 :
This new series is fun. I could not put it down. The characters of Drew and Wiley are ENTERTAINING! I read mostly heavy classics and historical Novels, but from time to time need a light fun read. Now I am not saying that a mystery about murder is light subject but it is fun and makes you use your brain to figure out the who dunnit person. The Author keeps you guessing to the end.

A really great read. I would recommend it to all my friends and family.

Start with book 1 a hole in the water. It build a good relationship between you and the main character Drew Nolan.
Then move onto book 2 Hells' Cold Furies to see what Drew gets into next. I am so glad I found all 4 books to this series so I do not miss a thing.
