It is 1886 and the greatest of all jockeys, Fred Archer, has put his gun to his head and shot himself. An inquest is arranged with indecent haste. His mind was unhinged by typhoid, say the jury, despite conflicting evidence.

The Prince is suspicious. He admired Archer. He knows the Turf better than anyone on that jury and he has personal experience of typhoid. When he learns that Archer's last words were, 'Are they coming?' he decides on action. He will turn his unique talents to solving the mystery and tell us in his inimitable fashion how he does it.

    " I liked this Price Edward detective series set in 1886 better than the Peter Diamond books. I'll try another of these. "

    " I am not a huge fan of the "Take a Famous Historical/Fictional Character and Make Them an Amateur Detective" genre, but this was a little bit of Victorian era history, and diverting enough. "

    " I don't think Peter Lovesey could put out a book that I wouldn't enjoy. He has such a fantastic way of making his characters come to life. I enjoyed the tongue-in-cheek humor in this one. "
