Architect and family man Lee Morris never gave much thought to the shares he inherited of the Stratton Park racecourse, the multi-million dollar property owned by the powerful Stratton family. His mother had first received the shares to keep her quiet about the abuse she had suffered at the hands of her first husband, Keith Stratton. Now, much to Lee's chagrin, he is being drawn into the thick of the Stratton family squabbles as they wage a furious debate over the future of the race track.

So when Lee packs his six sons into his renovated old bus to visit the racetrack, he finds himself embroiled in a supremely dangerous game that extends much deeper than horse racing. And perhaps too late, Lee realizes his involvement in the racetrack may cost him more than he bargained for...It may cost him his life... Download and start listening now!

    " I am not a big mystery fan, but I like Dick Francis about once every couple of years. I like the main character and his relationship with his sons, all but the remarkably stupid small side plot towards the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Velimir | 1/18/2011

    " An interesting picture of a tug of war between owners of a horse racing track. Not what I was expecting... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 10/15/2010

    " This is slow paced book but compared to some of the over the top racy (no pun intended) books, this was a welcomed read. The characters where realistic and did not change throughout. "

    " You can never go wrong with a Dick Francis mystery. I don't want to tell you how long I've been reading as it would 'date' us both too much. "
