But as he's tailing his quarry through the Cheltenham Racing Festival, the last thing he expects to witness is a gruesome murder. Could it have something to do with the reason the trainer was banned in the first place --

pay up or face the consequences. In order to limit the damage to the sport, it's critical that Jeff find the perpetrator ... but he'll soon learn he's up against someone who will stop at nothing to prevail ...
