Ex-amateur boxer and failed advertising account executive Jack Doyle, hero of Blind Switch, returns to the world of thoroughbred horse racing at a suburban Chicago track. With the help of furrier-to-the-mob Moe Kellman, Doyle is hired as publicity director at Monee Park - a struggling racetrack owned by heiress Celia McCann. Celia, whose husband is afflicted with Lou Gehrig's disease, is fighting to keep the business afloat while awaiting passage of a law allowing the introduction of lucrative video slot machines. She's determined to maintain the business inherited from her beloved uncle Jim Joyce. However, she is under pressure from her co-heir and cousin, Niall Hanratty, to close the track and sell the valuable property to real estate developers. Niall will stop at nothing to convince Celia to sell, even hiring thugs from Chicago's Canaryville neighborhood to help persuade her. Can the exploits of star sprinter Rambling Rosie save the track? Or will Doyle hold the key? Written from an insider's viewpoint, and featuring a robust cast of offbeat characters, Close Call provides entertaining insight into the unique world of American horse racing with a climax as exciting as a Derby photo finish.

There’s nothing like a murder to shake up a quiet neighborhood in this twisting whodunit featuring Britain’s intrepid detective duo, Lambert and Hook. Gurney Close is a small, recently-built cul-de-sac in Gloucestershire. Three nice houses and bungalow overlooking the river Wye. What better way for everyone—three married couples and a divorcee—to get acquainted than a block party? But on the morning after, the charming, utterly ordinary Robin Durkin is found garroted. Apart from his devastated wife, he was surrounded on all sides by perfect strangers. Superintendent John Lambert and Detective Sergeant Bert Hook beg to differ. Each neighbor had ties with the victim. And they’re far from perfect. Including Durkin himself. Unearthing Durkin’s past exposes a dirty little enclave of blackmail, vengeance, and adultery. But who, among these seemingly friendly faces, knew Durkin’s darkest secret—and was driven to murder to keep it hidden?
