"…the writing is right on the money - sharp dialogue and a plot that gallops along like a horse on the home straight!"
It is Cheltenham Gold Cup day and there have been three deaths in the same day. One was a spectator, one was a horse that had just won a race and the last was a jockey. The first two were natural, but there was nothing natural about the jockey found with three bullets in his chest. It had to be Sid Halley who stumbles over the body and it leads him along a very dangerous path of suspicion and threats.
Soon Sid is getting jobs from all directions. Someone wants to know why their horses aren’t running as well as they should. Another asks Sid to investigate a new acquaintance and his Internet gambling site. At the same time an old friend is under suspicion of race fixing – especially now his main jockey has been murdered. Then there is another violent death and Sid finds himself in the middle of a very nasty, devious plot. It doesn’t just involve Sid. His closest loved ones are suddenly in danger, too.
