Publisher's Summary

It’s amazing what bodily injury can do for a man. A fall from a racehorse left brilliant jockey Sid Halley dangerously depressed, with a wrecked hand and the need for a new career. It was a bullet wound that helped him find one.
Although he’d been with a detective agency since his racing accident, it isn’t until some two-bit hoodlum drills a slug into his side that he is sent out on a case of his own. That is where he meets Zanna Martin, a woman who just might make life worth living again. But it is an even-money bet that he will be killed before she has the chance.

One of Francis's best

The perceptive insight into people that typified all of Dick Francis's writing, spoiled by mediocre reading. Geoffrey Howard is certainly better than Martin Jarvis, but sadly will never come up to the same level as Simon Prebble or Tony Britton.

Francis' Wordcraft

Francis does it again; crafting intrigue, human nature and resilience into a story hard to put down. Enjoyed every page.
