Eddie owes a big favor to Maven Judge, the solitary software genius who helped him out in a previous case. He also owes time to healing family wounds with his nephew, Kim, and his sister, Marie. And Eddie's old friend, Mac, is suddenly sacked from his job in racing security. He, too, needs Eddie's help.
Eddie sees this as the summer of repayment, but beautiful redhead Nina Raine has plans to kill Eddie's career for good unless he does what she wants. Crooked bookie Jordan Ivory also wants Eddie out of the way so that his race-fixing scheme will carry on earning millions. The time has come for Eddie to find out if dependence on his own courage and sense of justice is enough to keep him and those he loves safe. Is the bravery and willpower of one man enough to defeat the evil plans of many?
