Item description for The Devil's Racket by Wallace Tom...
Four people brutally murdered in Manson-style slayings. A name written in blood on the TV screen. A scene straight out of a gruesome horror movie. Only it isn't a movie-it's very real. It's also unlike anything Kentucky homicide detective Jack Dantzler has ever encountered. The Devil's Racket plunges Dantzler into a nightmarish world where he will have to uncover acts of unspeakable evil. To avoid becoming the next victim, Dantzler must use all of his skill and cunning to stop the powers of darkness that have been unleashed in this normally quiet city.

One Tough Cop Apr 27, 2008
Jack Dantzler of the Lexington, KY homicide squad is one tough cop with a perfect solve record. But evil enters the horse country and attracts followers and Jack meets his toughest case ever in the person of Victor Sammual. Drugs, human sacrifice, satanism, and brutality pepper the pages of the police procedural that rated a review in the Lexington paper, not know for its interest in mysteries. People who know the territory will keep turning to pages looking for local haunts they know and recognize. Other readers will enjoy the skill with which Tom Wallace presents THE DEVIL'S RACKET, he makes you hear the balls bounce on the court. Nash Black, author of WRITING AS A SMALL BUSINESS and SINS OF THE FATHERS.

Homicide detective Jack Dantzler has a perfect solve rate with the Lexington, Kentucky police department. His secret: Dantzler prides himself on outsmarting the criminals he's after. But his ideal record is threatened when an evil darkness comes to Lexington, the likes of which Dantzler and his partners have never encountered.
When a woman and two of her three daughters are brutally slain, Dantzler is not only puzzled but also angry. He knew the woman and her daughters and can think of no reason why these three would be slaughtered. Dantzler's investigation leads him to New York and back to a horse farm in Lexington, where young women are disappearing. What Dantzler uncovers during his investigation is evil incarnate that puts his own life in danger, as well as his friends and other investigators.
The Devil's Racket is a chilling thriller, packed with breath-taking suspense. The gritty, fast-paced plot holds the reader's interest from the first page to the last. Dantzler is an engaging character, a talented tennis player with a genius IQ whose investigative techniques are infallible. His developing relationship with detective Laurie Dunn adds a warm touch to a disturbing, albeit galvanizing, storyline.
