Summary

Wealthy racing yard owner Edward de Jersey has spent the last few years of his life reaping the rewards of his criminal mastermind past and spending his free time priming his star horse, Royal Flush, for a Derby win. Having successfully pulled off some of the most lucrative heists in history as 'The Colonel', at the height of his activity, he was one of the most prolific criminals of his time.

But, when his financial advisor invests his fortune in an internet company that crashes quickly after, he is left with no choice but to return to his old ways. This time, with the biggest target of all in mind...

Cracking read

Great story full of twists, turns and intrigue and superbly performed by Paul Thornley. I found his narration really brought the characters to life and hope in the future he will be used by the author again.

The work that had gone into it.

I enjoyed the whole story, it was a little different for Lynda la Plant, I listened to it on audio, and was thoroughly engrossed until the end.
