Publisher's Summary

Charlie Bradshaw is a regular, down-to-earth guy - middle-aged, divorced, an ex-cop working as a security guard at a Saratoga stable. Then his boss gets killed. It shows Charlie what's behind those powerful and prestigious stable owners.

But Charlie doesn't back off. Aided by a motley band of guards and grooms, racetrack touts and toughs, Charlie discovers a far-reaching plot behind the murder - a discovery that just might cost him his life!

Critic Reviews

"Dick Francis had better look to his laurels. An American long shot, appropriately named Dobyns, is coming up fast on the outside." (The Houston Post)
