Murder at the race track

Kickback starts where Head in the Sand ends, with detective Nick Dixon recovering from his knife wound. A trainee jockey has apparently been kicked to death in his stables at the race track by an aggressive horse. The jockey's brother believes he was actually murdered and takes strong steeps to assure that the police are forced to investigate it as such. Thus begins a story of murder, blackmail, and other criminal activities. DI Nick Dixon and his police partner/girlfriend Jane ultimately resolve the case but not before more murder.

This is Book 3 of the five novel Nick Dixon police procedural series. The setting is in the midlands of England.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Racing, Roadies & Ruin Abound!

DI Dixon does it again. With merely a moments notice since his last case, and still not fully recovered from the wounds it inflicted Detective Inspector Dixon is onto a horse mauling that may not be what it seems.

Accompanied by a skeleton crew, he enters the world of racing to find out what's transpired and who's responsible.

Quick and potent like the two before, this thriller plays out interestingly. Unlike the others, there are a few too many characters and a slight implausibility for this reader. Still a worthy listen as Napoleon gives us his oratory best!
