STARTING PRICE – Jacquie Little’s new novel available now / National / 29 May, 2009

STARTING PRICE, Jacquie Little’s recently released great new novel, is now available at the introductory price of $30.

Written by Jacquie Little, a horse lover from her early days and the wife of the highly successful Victorian trainer and Australian Trainers' Association (Vic Branch) Committee Member Colin Little, Jacquie worked on her novel for five years, finishing shortly before discovering she had a brain tumour.

STARTING PRICE tells the story of when Ryan Miller, an ex cop with racing roots, joins the stewards department at the National Racing Commission. It doesn’t take him long to discover that a pervading sense of disquiet surrounds his department.

Keen to make a go of his new career he says nothing, but things change when a prominent jockey is found murdered and Ryan’s investigative skills are called into play.

The more Ryan digs into the life of the jockey and those associated with him, the more intriguing the situation becomes. Calling on unconventional contacts made during his days in the police force, Ryan unearths a trial of deceit, revenge and blackmail.
