Publisher's Summary

Tim Ekaterin's merchant bank, like all banks, only invests in sure things. Now he's about to involve it in ₤5 million of prime horseflesh, a stallion called Sandcastle. Top breeders reckon it's the safest bet in racing. But racing doesn't just attract the money men of the city. It's riddled with all kinds of dubious dealmakers. People who don't think twice about breaking bones. People to whom no bet is safe until it's paid in blood, Ekaterin's blood.

Sue me -- I love D. Francis

Yes, he uses a formula -- but what a formula. As usual, this is fast-paced, complex enough to be interesting, and full of research details that bring the story alive.

I think he's an excellent writer. There's no other thriller/mystery author who is so consistently excellent.

Get it!

Deeply moving, intelligent book

I love Dick Francis' books. This is one of my most favourite. Painfully moving in parts, and haunting once read. The uncompromising nature of greed.
