"I felt my legs buckle and the floor rushed up to meet me…"

Arizona, 1954. When promising mile runner Todd 'The Phoenix Flyer' Naylor turns up dead in the desert, the case falls to Daniel Stone. A private investigator with a passion for track and field, Stone soon finds himself tangled in a web of conspiracy and corruption – there's more to this death than meets the eye.

As the international battle to break the four minute mile barrier intensifies, Stone races to unravel the mystery and prevent further deaths. But will he make it in time? And who do you trust when you're running the Murder Mile?
