August 4, 1996. Monday morning. Chase Chilton wakes up with the thought..."Damn! Foiled again!" Still burning from his date last night with a Hot Tamale. A fiesta that ended up in a fiasco! Chase picks up the morning paper, and this simple act precipites his immediate endeavor: trying to evade the APB issued in his name by the San Bruno Police Department. Seems he's the number one suspect in a murder investigation that has more twists than a pretzel; more wrinkles than a $50 suit; more turning points than a staircase in a lighthouse.
Chase is chased and Chase is the chaser. He attempts to clear his name with a little help from his friends - retired Criminology Professor Jeremy Jenkins, and the brother of the victim, Mario Lopez, this year's leading apprentice jockey at Bay Meadows race track. The track where Chase mans a $50 Turf Club window.
The race is on! To see if the three sleuths can uncover the real murderer. Before Chase is apprehended and incicted for the crime!
