    Undercover investigator Jeff Hinkley is assigned by the British Horseracing Authority to look into the activities of a suspicious racehorse trainer, but as he’s tailing his quarry through the Cheltenham Racing Festival, the last thing he expects to witness is a gruesome murder. Could it have something to do with the reason the trainer was banned in the first place - the administration of illegal drugs to his horses?

    Predictable

    Not the best

    Martin Jarvis is always wonderful but he didn't have a outstanding book this time. The plot was ok, fast at some points and slow at others. The protag..Show More »

    Jeff Hinkley is back for a third outing.
