LAUREL -- With the Laurel Turf Cup switched to the dirt track, people around the winner's circle yesterday couldn't resist referring to it as the "Laurel Dirt Cup."The race carried a $100,000 guaranteed purse, and the nine starters all had their names on saddlecloths made just for the occasion.But with a change in racing surface and a reduction in distance from 1 1/2 miles to 1 1/4 miles, it was open to a little joking.Trainer Rodger Gill smiled for a different reason, however. Things were just fine for Gill, trainer of Chas' Whim, the winner.

Fifteen years ago, on a cold December morning, a distraught and financially desperate Iowa farmer named Dale Burr walked into the Hills Bank & Trust Company in the tiny town of Hills and shot the bank president in the head with a 12-gauge shotgun. Before he was finished, the 63-year-old Burr had also killed his wife, his neighbor and himself, and the worst agricultural crisis since the Great Depression had reached a bloody and symbolic climax. Claire Davis may or may not have heard of Dale Burr before she wrote this haunting and remarkable novel, her first, but she knows his type.

Internet listings of new mysteries have gone up as high as the stock in Amazon.com. There is no feasible way to cull out the best -- or the worst. Bestselling authors P.D. James, Ruth Rendell, Thomas Harris, John Grisham, Tony Hillerman are excluded, though each of them will have published this season. Those included here were chosen through bumbling investigation into a random sampling.Starting on the home front, there is Blair S. Walker's "Hidden in Plain View," (Avon Books, 229 pages, $22.)
