Nashville private investigator Jared McKean has a son with Down syndrome, a best friend with AIDS, an ex-wife he can’t seem to fall out of love with, and a weakness for women in jeopardy - until one frames him for murder.
His DNA and fingerprints are found at the murder scene, his voice is on the victim’s answering machine, and the victim was killed with a bullet from his gun. To make matters worse, his teenage nephew comes out of the closet and runs away to join a dangerous fringe of the goth subculture. Now Jared must find a way to clear his name, hold his family together, and solve a case that could cost him his life.

“This is a first-rate PI novel that opens with one of the best-constructed frame-ups I’ve ever read.…Written in spare, note-perfect prose, with a knockout plot and characters who don’t go away when you close the cover, this is a terrific book. I hope there’s going to be a lot more of Jared McKean.” (Timothy Hallinan, Edgar Award nominee)
“The stuff Hollywood movies are made of: suspense, intrigue, hi-fi action - all the ingredients of a staple thriller are there in the correct proportions in Racing the Devil.…Terrell delivers a punching thriller that’s pure Hitchcockian in suspense.” ( New Mystery Review)
