Rancher Kit Troxley loves the thrill of the racetrack. He is well aware that horse racing can be a perilous sport, but when ruthless jockey Sam Overmyer cheats him for the win, Kit's eyes are opened to the dark side of the competition. After accusing Sam of foul play, Kit discovers that horses don't pose the only danger on the track—Sam's fury has followed Kit back to his Utah ranch, and the man is out for vengeance. His agenda is to destroy Kit's life one piece at a time—and why not start big, with an accusation of murder? As Kit struggles to prove his innocence, he must rely on his faithful family and friends for help. But even as he stays one step ahead of Sam's wrath, Kit soon realizes that simple vindication will never be enough for his opponent. What began as a feud on the track has turned into a deadly game of cat and mouse, and Kit will be lucky if he makes it out alive.
