Jockey Kit Fielding has been riding the de Brescou’s horses in a succession of triumphs on the race course. But this winning streak is about to end. Kit’s twin sister, Holly, has come to him in desperation. Threatened by financial scandal, she and her husband may lose their training stables. Kit soon finds, though, that a greater danger lurks behind the threat—one that could be fatal.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 2/18/2014

    " Was a little slow in parts. Not my favorite Dick Francis book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Geoffrey | 2/15/2014

    " I'm really surprised how much I enjoyed it. The story is set in the world of horseracing - of which I have no interest - and its set among the old school British upper crust - of which I also have no interest. And I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book. It was fun and paced well. I did have to keep reminding myself it took place in the 1980's and not the 1920's, but I think that's a throwback to the horseracing/upper crust thing .... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darcy | 1/25/2014

    " Some of the language was lyrically expressive and rich--very elegant writing. The hero was more admirable and tough and perfectly forgiving than could possibly be believed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Smokinjbc | 1/23/2014

    " Entertaining read - especially loved the descriptions of the racing world and the horses. The main character, Kit Fielding, is a little too perfect/cocky (he's even tall for a jockey ;) ) but definitely a good start to reading this author's books. "
