Dick Francis, the bestselling master of mystery and suspense, takes you into the thrilling world of horse racing.
When he wakes in a pitch black room with his hands bound, Roland Britten, accountant and champion steeplechase jockey, knows he’s entered a nightmare of someone else’s making. Wracking his brain to figure out who is out to get him and why, he comes up empty, but somehow manages a death defying escape.
It isn’t long though before he’s recaptured. Now, with his life at stake, he must take every risk to outsmart his well disguised enemy and save himself.
