Then many more horses test positive for prohibited stimulants, and someone starts making demands, threatening to completely destroy the integrity of the racing industry. In order to limit the damage to the sport, it's critical that Jeff findthe perpetrator. but he'll soon learn he's up against someone who will stop at nothing to prevail"-- "Jeff Hinkley is an undercover investigator for the British Horseracing Authority.
