Publisher's Summary

The pleasure of a day at Sandown is spoiled for Steven Scott when he sacks his trainer, a one-time friend whom he suspects is a crook. Racing may have its rewards, but as Scott finds out not all of them are innocent, or legal.

    "Another excellent Francis novel"

    Whether you are already a fan or are new to Dick Francis novels you are sure to like this one. Tony Britton brings all the characters to life with a wonderful performance.

    "Old Favourite"

    I have always loved this book and it was a joy to become reaquainted via audio book. Tony Briton is an excellent voice artist and manages the wide range of accents required admirably. The characters are very real and like all Francis characters from a wide range of backgrounds. Like most of his earlier works the action is set mainly in the racing world but most of the principal characters come from outside that world which makes it all the more interestin. I know lots of people that don't try Dick Francis because they are not interested in horses. Don't let that stop you. The book is about people, their strenths and weeknesses, their virtues and their flaws. The horses are part of the scenery and the plot but knowledge of and interest in horses is not required to enjoy this book. Of cours, if you like the horses than that's a bonus. Very compulsive listening and a good introduction to Dick Francis if you have not read him before.
