A high-class, transcontinental horse-racing junket should be an idyllic getaway for the super-rich. But one passenger on this train is a sociopath – a genius at blackmail and criminal corruption – and he plans to take everyone for everything they've got.
To the Jockey Club, the racing world would be a better place without Julius Apollo Filmer. An expert in corruption with a devastating line in witness intimidation – and a slippery character to put behind bars.
Baffled, they call in undercover security agent Tor Kelsey to keep an unflinching eye on Filmer and his associates. A mission that takes him from the finest of English racecourses to the wild Canadian interior – on a luxury transcontinental train journey to end them all.
On board, a troupe of actors are playing out a murder mystery for the amusement of their diamond-studded passengers. Ideal cover for a secret investigator with secrets of his own.
And better still for an ice-cool blackmailer for whom murder is just one of many options ...

No chapters, second half won't play
Nothing wrong with Francis's storytelling, but the audio quality is poor, there are no chapters, so no ability to move through the audio book, and the second half of the book won't play at all, despite being fully downloaded. Do Not Buy.
