The Sea Horse Trade

A Nikki Latrelle Racing Mystery

Sasscer Hill (Author)

Literary star Sasscer Hill’s growing multitude of fans who have been chomping at the bit for another Nikki Latrelle Racing Mystery need wait no more! Hill’s latest spellbinding, page-turning suspense story, The Sea Horse Trade, takes readers to South Florida for a wild ride on the dark side, mixing horse racing, a mysterious drug kingpin, prostitution, and a mother’s brave search for the daughter she was forced to give up at birth.

When Nikki works the January meet at Gulfstream Park near Miami, something about a new racehorse owner worries her. Bad enough she’s expected to handle Currito Maldonista’s evil-minded colt, but Nikki begins to suspect the Colombian may be a drug lord, using horses as a cover to sell his product in the United States. Worse, could he be abducting underage American girls into a network of overseas sex trafficking?

Nikki’s world and Maldonista’s become further entwined when Nikki’s oldest friend, Carla Ruben, comes to Florida to find the teenage daughter she gave up for adoption years ago. The teenager’s adoptive parents died unexpectedly, and the exotically beautiful girl was last seen in Miami. Could Maldonista be involved? Nikki and Carla must put lives on the line to find out.

A thrilling new racing mystery from the Agatha and Macavity Award-nominated author of Full Mortality and Racing from Death!

Sasscer knows her stuff!” – Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity–winning author
