It’s the classic law of the invader. Get to the strongest guy and smash him, then watch the weaker ones fall like ninepins. Which is just what a vicious gang of horse dealers decides to do when their little kickback scam is threatened with a spot of old-fashioned honesty.
But they haven’t reckoned with bloodstock agent Jonah Dereham, a man who belies his quiet exterior with a steely and implacable resolve. They can threaten him, try to burn down his home, even attempt to kill him. But they’ll soon wish they hadn’t.

haven,t read print version but in audio they are good story,s
they are a good storyline about the racing and corrupt characters in it
yes the books by dick francis are very interresting his knowledge about the racing and jumps racing is good making for a fast paced story with plenty of action
nothing i like the narrator
Another brilliant Dick Francis. Full of action and suspense right up to the end.
This is a a great story with plenty of twist and turns very enjoyable I would really recommend it but once you start you can't stop
having been a fan of Dick Francis for almost 20 years now, I whave read and re read all of his books. The narrative form has ticked every box, when reading we enter our own imagination. The narrator has his voices down to a tee. I throughly recomennd to any one. five stars.
