In the middle of the night on a quiet country road in Northern Indiana a crop duster is stolen, and the patrol cop who happens by during the theft is brutally murdered. With the most famous racing event in the world only days away, the governor, along with the Department of Homeland Security task Virgil Jones and the state’s Major Crimes Unit to determine if the two events are somehow connected. Their fear? The plane could be used to spray the crowd of spectators with a deadly substance, killing or injuring thousands…
But Virgil has his own personal motivation for finding the stolen aircraft: His wife, Sandy, has been chosen to wave the green flag to start the Indianapolis 500, something she is extremely excited about. But Virgil isn’t excited about the idea at all. In fact, he’s afraid if they don’t find the plane in time, and figure out who is responsible for one of the most complicated cases he’s ever investigated, the Brickyard could be turned into a graveyard.
Virgil Jones always knew racing could be deadly, especially at the Indianapolis 500. He just never thought it would lead to murder.
