When Kurt Maxxon arrives at the Centralia Racetrack, he is confronted by a gun-wielding man with a wad of cash in his free hand. Inside the driver’s lounge, Kurt finds the body of local race driver Melvyn Hightower—shot dead—his wallet rifled. Kurt has no doubt the gun-wielding man did it—until they can’t find the dead man’s racecar. Who shot Melvyn Hightower? Why? Where is Melvyn’s car? Kurt is surrounded by possibilities, but no clear answers. The facts are leading to nothing but dead ends. Could this be the first case Kurt cannot solve?
