Years ago, an innocent mother was brutally murdered. Now her husband has just survived what appears to be an attempt on his life. Is someone really trying to kill him and if so why? Jack must investigate this latest crime — is it connected to the secrets flowing from Julia's death many years before? Jack battles with these issues and the possible involvement of his own father-in-law in the murder.

Jack has an inkling the wrong man is in jail. Using the new Crimetrace photogrammetry technology for blood spatter analysis and advanced DNA testing, he sets out to right the wrong of the past and in the process makes himself very unpopular indeed.

Set against the seedy background of the Greyhound racing industry, BlackJack - In the Money probes the secrets of a family torn apart many years ago. In doing so, Jack's daughter encourages him to reconnect with his own troubled family.
