Publisher's Summary

To a jockey, losing his license is the equivalent of being struck off, or disbarred, or cashiered. When steeplechase rider Kelly Hughes lost his license his first feelings were of bewilderment and disbelief, for he was not guilty of the charges. Nor, to the best of his knowledge, was the trainer he had ridden for, who lost his livelihood as well. When his first stunned state of shock subsided, Kelly began to wonder why he had been framed, who had done it, and how it had been achieved. He did more than wonder: he began to search. The nearer he came to the solution the fiercer grew the retaliation. But Kelly had been left with nothing much to lose, the only serious strategic mistake his enemy had made. A first-rate story of men in the racing game.

A great yarn

Like all Dick Francis novels, this is a terrific yarn. The story is fast-paced and difficult to put down. The hero is attractive and believable and although there is considerable violence it is story-book stuff and not evil. No swearing or gratuitous sex.

English Equestrians

This was a fast and easy listen book. Takes place in England so the language is different and keeps your interest. I enjoyed hearing about the differences in our languages and also the difference in the equestrian world.
The book is basically about a jockey and owner who are disbarred from the racing world. The jockey knows he is innocent and sets out to clear his name and find who framed them.
