After the Last Race

by Dean Koontz
Release date: 1974
Type: other fiction
Genres: thriller

Edgar and Annie are tired of living by the rules. Hard work has earned them only debt and loneliness. They want wealth - no matter what the risk.

Fearful but determined, they plan a clever, hideously dangerous robbery. The target: a thoroughbred race track on Sweepstakes Day. The goal: steal every dollar from the cash room and the mutual windows - plus one million dollars that is on display as a promotional gimmick.

The attempt draws into their lives many unexpected, sharply delineated characters, including an arsonist, a psychopathic killer, a cancer-stricken gambler on his last fling, and a wise young track detective.
