About the Book

Sired by a national champion, Summer Storm’s birth in the beautiful rolling hills of Kentucky is a highly anticipated event. Great things are expected of Summer Storm, and she doesn’t disappoint.

Summer Storm—a beautiful, innocent, and carefree championship racehorse—has a persistent spirit. The word quit is not in her vocabulary. She wins every race she runs and achieves incredible success and fame. But the innocence of her youth is eventually consumed as the Mafia’s tentacles grab hold and Summer Storm becomes embroiled in a doping scandal. Betrayal, greed, and murder enter the picture and leave her once-beautiful body and home and her promising future in peril.

The Jagged Side of Midnight, told by Summer Storm, follows her life through Kentucky, meandering across the country to the scenic mountains of Tehachapi, California, to tragedy in the desert of Lancaster, California, where she becomes a rescue horse—leaving her lonely and depressed.
