Product description

From the Inside Flap

Neil Marshall is a graduate student in the University of Houston's creative writing program. He is also a poet. Graduate student and poet--hardly the world's most lucrative endeavors, especially for someone who has just embarked on a money-draining divorce. To make ends meet, Neil moonlights as a chef for a high-society caterer.
Just when his life seems bleakest, Neil's oldest friend, racehorse breeder Jason Keys, is murdered. And guess what! Neil becomes the prime suspect.
To save his neck, avenge his friend, and rescue a missing championship Thoroughbred, Neil penetrates the dark underworld of horse theft and illegal breeding. Neil's friends--his attractive writing teacher, his cooking colleagues, and a freckle-faced teenage horsewoman--cheer him on. But Neil knows if he fails, his goose is cooked. . . . --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


From Publisher's Weekly: "Hemlin's first mystery is a very promising, quite smart, launch to a new series. Neil Marshall is busy enough as a poetry grad student, part-time caterer and soon-to-be divorce. But when Neil's best friend, horse breeder Jason Keys, is murdered and Neil becomes a suspect, he reluctantly adds amateur sleuth, racing analyst and teen psychologist to his resume. This is a Southern-fried tale blessed by an unconventional cast of characters who are at times more reminiscent of Greenwich Village than Houston." --This text refers to the paperback edition.
