★★★★★ “An alchemic inferno” ~~San Francisco Book Review


  Nick Fister’s the winningest ultra-runner ever, but he’s paid a price. His daughter Tuesday took her own life. His wife is sleeping with his crew chief, Floyd. And his “greatest fan” — a former-Marine sniper — has progressed from creepy stalker to deadly menace. Nick’s chosen Death Valley’s Badwater 135 as the brutal capstone to his career. When Floyd fails to show at race start, Nick begins without him — and learns shortly later Floyd was stabbed to death the night before. Nick Fister always wins, and his relentless focus keeps him in the race. But soon the Inyo County Deputies learn about Nick’s cheating wife. The troubled business partnership. The life insurance. Did Nick murder Floyd, while queuing a psychotic sniper to take the fall? Or is Nick Fister running for his life?  


★★★★★ Relentless “Five stars for a beautiful book with a truly triumphant ending.” ~~Kate Pynch
