New paperback publication from Altus Press with introduction by Ed Hulse.
To habits of the nation's top racetracks he's known as "The Bland Buddha of the Bangtail Circuit." Less polite players of the ponies call him a tout or a bookie. There's no doubt that Mr. Joe Maddox is a shrewd judge of horseflesh, but he's also shrewd judge of men. And that's a critically important quality to posses, because Mr. Maddox repeatedly finds himself pitted against crooks and killers whose depredations are linked in some way to the racing game. Assisted by his sidekick Oscar, the heavyset handicapper has always managed to beat the odds, but sooner or later his luck is bound to change...
