Steeplechase jockey Christmas "Kit" Fielding has had more than his share of close calls both on and off the course. But trouble hits close to home when a grudge between his family and his sister's in-laws turns into a blood feud.

One of Francis's best. Full of racing action, power-hungry aristocracy, and altogether believable characters.
simply excellent. another example of the protagonist as a regular person rising to meet progressively more rigorous challenges through the exercise of character and intelligence. Francis breathes life vividly into the locales and characters. like a steeplechase there are no lulls in the pace of the story lines. character and goodness struggle but triumph! gives one faith in mankind.
