Description
Jockey Freddie Croft thought he'd left the perils behind him when he retired from the jump game, in this 1992 thriller by Dick Francis (1920–2010). These days Freddie is happy to transport horses from their stables to the races—until one of his drivers picks up an unlicensed passenger, and brings him back dead. The corpse on the doorstep is Freddie's unwelcome introduction to the shadowy, big-money conspiracy that is muscling into his business, and starting to threaten his life. But Freddie is a fighter, and knows how to win: first identify the dangers—then beat them out of sight. Once one of the top horse-racing jockeys in Britain, Dick Francis went on to become one of the world's most celebrated mystery writers, inventing his own genre of thrillers set in the world of horse racing, and winning an unparalleled three Edgar Awards for Best Novel as well as the CWA's Diamond Dagger and the MWA's Grand Master Award.

"Galloping heroics.... The old master still engages all your interest."—Mail on Sunday (London)
