Publisher's Summary

Sophie Bradford is pretty, blonde, and an accomplished flirt. When her body is found dumped in a ditch on a lonely West Country road, Jamie Mullin is the prime suspect. He was her latest boyfriend, and they'd had a very public row just before she disappeared.

Jamie protests his innocence but soon spirals into a breakdown fuelled by frustration, self-pity, and drink, and it is left to his friend, Matt Shepherd, to fight his corner. Can he find the truth behind what appears to be a motiveless murder?

As Matt begins to uncover some dark secrets - secrets that someone will kill to protect - he soon learns that loyalty at all costs carries a lethal price.

    "A day at the races"

    This is an exciting who dunnit. As it is also about the life of a steeplechase jockey and his world, it is also an eye opener on UK steeplechasing world and its hazards (of which I knew almost nothing).

    Matt Shepherd is a good friend of fellow jockey, Jamie Mullin, who, it seems from the behaviour of the police, is the most likely suspect in the murder of his girlfriend.

    From initially defending his friend's innocence Matt finds hinself committed to clearing Jamie's name by finding the real killer. Matt's loyalty to Jamie, and his promise to help him, first upsets then endangers his job as a jockey, his relationship with his fiancee, Cassandra and ultimately his life.

    This well-told thriller has an excellent narrator in Jonathon Keeble and is a riverting 'read'.

    "A Great Story"

    I didn't know this author but am glad to find him. What I liked about this story especially, was the fact that the characters did what common sense suggested which doesn't always happen. So I wasn't left thinking ' that was stupid, no one would do that!' The story moves along at a fast pace and there is always something keeping the reader guessing. Language was in keeping and I felt really involved. The ending was also satisfying, unlike some recent reads and left me looking up his other books, which I will certainly buy. They are all in my wish list now.

    "fantastic"

    great story line and the narrator Jonathan Keeble is the best, would listen to him reading the phone directory, makes the story come alive

    "horse racing to conclusion"

    pretty good book. i enjoyed listening & the narrator. more horse racing detail than interested me or was necessary to advance the story. the final escape from the "bad guy" went on a little too long, although i did like the hero and was glad he prevailed.
