Everything seems to be going right for brilliant young jockey Duncan Claymore. A career on the up, a beautiful wife, and all the trappings of wealth. But Duncan is haunted by the death of one of his archrivals. He may not have pulled the trigger, but he still has blood on his hands.
As Duncan struggles to keep his focus on the job, Michelle O'Brien - a friend and talented fellow jockey - is killed, and Duncan knows this was far from a tragic accident. He's never liked William Osborne, but now he will stop at nothing to avenge Michelle's death.
With Duncan's seemingly perfect world starting to come apart at the seams, can he balance his desire for victory on the field with his desire to see justice served?

Having finished all the Dick Francis novels, I'm delighted to find someone writing using the same background of horse racing.
There is a different tone to this book, but the characters are good, the plot pulls you in, and you are kept in suspense right to the end. Well written.
The narrator brought it to life, and didn't get in the way.
I have just downloaded his other novel, and hope that he writes a few more. Thankyou and well done.
