Dick Francis’ beloved investigator Sid Halley returns in the
riveting new mystery by New York Times
bestselling author Felix Francis.
Six years ago, investigator Sid Halley retired for good.
He’d been harassed, beaten, shot, even lost a hand to his investigating
business, and enough was enough. For the sake of his wife and new daughter he
gave up that life of danger and uncertainty, and he thought nothing would ever
lure him back into the game.
He thought wrong. Sir Richard Stewart, chairman of the
racing authority, begs Sid to investigate a series of dodgy races. Sid
adamantly refuses, but the following day, Sir Richard is found dead under
suspicious circumstances. And then a man with an Irish accent contacts Sid,
telling him to deliver a whitewashed report about the suspected race-fixing—or
At first Sid ignores these warnings, knowing that once he
submits to this criminal bully, he will forever be under his control. But as
the intimidation tactics escalate—and Sid’s own family comes under threat—Sid
realizes he must meet his enemy head-on … or he might pay the ultimate price
for his refusal. Download and start listening now!
