    1. I feel compelled to offer some preconditions on this review. The worst thing to do, of course -- making excuses before you've said word one about the text itself. But here goes.First of all, I don't naturally gravitate toward mystery genre books. Now, I'm a sucker for a sci-fi or horror genre book, cliches and all . . . but mystery cliches cause a lot of eye rolling for me. (There's several in Triple Cross, but they come with the territory, so I can't find fault for their use.)Second, I know not [...]


    2. This is the fourth in the Steve Cline series. TRIPLE CROSS is set during the two weeks leading up to the Kentucky Derby. Steve's dad has a horse running in the race, so Steve is there to help him. Steve is also taking a course in detective work and as part of that he picks a person at random to research. When he does so, he stumbles on a major mystery when the woman disappears and is later found murdered. Steve is roughed up and robbed, his room tossed, and is then chased all around the city by [...]


    3. While the horse details were dead on, for the most part, and other details were well researched, I personally didn't care for the story. I have read two of Ehrman's titles and simply can't warm up to the main character. I don't search out mystery novels but I do horse related novels. I'm going to have to say I'm skipping on this series from here on out. Also, I have a pet peeve about language and the use of more than necessary,in my opinion,trash talk.


    4. An engaging read, especially if you live in the Louisville, Kentucky area, but not one of my favorites. If you're not familiar with the area (or the Kentucky Derby), you may frequently be lost.
