Maggie Estep’s critically praised heroine, Ruby Murphy, is back! Back in Coney Island with a bunch of endearing misfits, back at the racetrack ogling thoroughbreds, and back learning that, on the seamy side of the sport of kings, survival can be a long shot. Ruby’s life is nothing if not complicated: she’s spending a lot of her time worrying about a jockey named Attila Johnson; a good-hearted Teamster with a bad back; a neighbor who is suspicious of anything that moves; one very fat cat who craves raw meat; a missing FBI agent; an underused piano; a few fine horses—and the sure knowledge that somehow, somewhere, there is a killer among them.

Poor Maggie Estep who died at just 50. She was one of the most original and captivating writers in America. The former MTV star in its early days, and long time feature of poetry slams in Greenwich Village, was a horseplayer and racetracker through and through.
Gargantua is a powerful story of the racetrack life. Grittier and more realistic than anything Dick Francis ever wrote, deeper by far than Lord of Misrule which won the National Book Award. It is a fast paced page turner that cannot be put down. It is also a provocatively thoughtful book. I could not recommend it more.

It took me a minute to get into her voice but then I loved it. She writes a compelling story with quirky, flawed, lovable characters that engages me and kept me pushing the page turn thingy on my kindle. As I write this I have already read all 3 books in the trilogy and I recommend them to anyone who likes mysteries or horses or love stories that take a while to develop.
Lots of fun to read. Great characters as always.
Maggie Estep is brilliant, hilarious, incisive, wildly talented, and did I mention brilliant? The only bad thing about her is that she makes her fans wait months between books. Finally, Gargantuan has arrived. We can breathe--and read, and laugh, and gasp--again. Sweet relief!
Great characters, but too many for me. I got irritated that every chapter was a new character. Please, keep it to 3 characters!
