“Race” is a window into death and life investigated by a detective who has his own choice to make between heaven and hell.

Roman Diego, a Thoroughbred assistant trainer, is found dead in his tack room at the Rainier Meadows Racetrack. Is the confused, barely-covered young woman who had awakened next to the dead man a killer?

As Detective David James investigates the death of Roman Diego, a syringe containing a mystery liquid is discovered. The mystery deepens as the list of suspects gets longer. Who would want to kill Roman Diego, one of the “good guys”?

In this raw, romantic, and redemptive novel, David James searches for a common denominator between the suspects and the victim as the motive becomes harder to ignore.

“In this moving story of betrayal and redemption, Petrino-Salter breathes new life into a familiar character-the hard-bitten detective-and turns the genre’s cliches on their heads. ‘Race’ is what a mystery should be.”
-Karin Kaufman, author of the bestselling “Juniper Grove Cozy Mystery Series”
