Photofinish delves into the mysterious death of famed horse-trainer Rory Kind. His name-sake grand-daughter turns her grief at his death into a search for how and why it happened. As she solves the crime, she relives the chance way she came to live with him and realizes once again that family is the very heart of everything she has grown to love.
Photofinish is a suspense novel written in a tight, wide-appeal style for adults. The length is approximately 78,500 words, or 340 pages. SYNOPSIS and SETUP: Rory Kind I, a wellknown horse-trainer, is killed at night alone at his racetrack stable. His death occurs from a blow to the head, after a charity meet where heavy attendance and betting result in a myriad of suspects. The initial motive seems to be unknown; at first the police think he was kicked accidentally by a horse. But, Rory, his granddaughter, named for him, does not believe that. She begins to search, and uncovers something of both her past and her future as she proves his death was no accident.
