Blind Switch by John McEvoy

Book Description

Praise for Blind Switch "This accomplished first novel set in the world of horse racing is bound to be compared to the novels of Dick Francis..." -Publishers Weekly starred review One-time amateur boxer Jack Doyle, an irreverent and rebellious advertising account representative, goes to work one fine Chicago day and finds his desk-and his job-both gone. A two-time loser at the marriage game as well, Doyle, usually ultra-confident, fishes himself out of a bottle to take stock, realizing, "with a thumping finality, that Life sure as hell did have his Number and was crunching it." At loose ends, Doyle accepts an unusual offer from an acquaintance, Moe Kellman, to fix a horse race. The context of making the deal-a Cubs game at storied Wrigley Field- sets up a chain of events that will lead the FBI to Doyle's door. They "coopt" him into a quest after people who are maiming or killing thoroughbred horses for their insurance values. Their number one target is a loathsome media mogul who can't bear to lose...at anything. John McEvoy, former Midwest Editor and senior correspondent for Daily Racing Form, is the author of several previously published non-fiction books on thoroughbred horse racing, including the award-winning Great Horse Racing Mysteries. Blind Switch is the first novel in his Jack Doyle horseracing mysteries set in Chicago. He lives and writes in Evanston, IL. www.johnmcevoyauthor.com
