REVIEW OF DEAD MONEY BY STEVE O'BRIEN


Title: Dead Money
Author:
Steve O'Brien
Publisher:
A&N Publishing
Publication Date:
Jan 10, 2013.
Purchase Book: Amazon, Barnes & Noble.


About The Book:

You Can't Stop It.

The stranger's menacing, dismissive laughter echoed in attorney Dan Morgan s head. In the heart of thoroughbred country--Churchill Downs--a major con was about to be pulled. Despite Dan's efforts, his filly, Aly Dancer, was somehow part of the scheme.

You Can't Stop It.

Dan's dream as a thoroughbred owner was to run in a Grade I race a televised stakes race. That opportunity had finally appeared. So far it had only resulted in threats, violence and death. 

You Can't Stop It.

What was the scam? Who was involved? Who could he turn to? Post time was nearing. The man's sinister voice would not leave him.

You Can't Stop It.


About the Author:

Steve O'Brien is the author of four novels: Elijah's Coin, Bullet Work, Redemption Day, and Dead Money. Elijah's Coin has been added to the reading curriculum in multiple secondary schools throughout the US and has been incorporated in a university ethics course. The e-book version of Redemption Day was an Amazon.com Bestseller. Steve is a graduate of the University of Nebraska and George Washington University Law School. He lives in Washington, DC.


My Thoughts:

This is a fantastic murder mystery and a sequel to Bullet Work. I read the book rather quickly and learned some things about horse racing that I was unaware of. The  book was full of twists and turns that I never saw coming. There was romance,evil, gangsters, believable characters and of course horses. This was one of the best books that I have read so far this year. The ending was unexpected and opens up the door to a sequel. I hope that Mr. O'Brien continues to write in the future. If you love horse racing and mystery novels this is the book for you.
