Dick Francis, the bestselling master of mystery and suspense, takes you into the thrilling world of horse racing.
For a generous commission, ex-prizewinning jockey Jonah Dereham reluctantly agrees to bid on a young steeplechaser on behalf of a wealthy American woman. But his life is thrust into danger immediately following the auction, when he receives a blow to the head by two thugs demanding ownership of the horse.
Unfortunately that’s just the beginning. Now Jonah must figure out the high stakes game being played, before he becomes its next casualty.
