It's amazing what bodily injury can do for a man. A fall from a racehorse left brilliant jockey Sid Halley dangerously depressed, with a wrecked hand and the need for a new career. It was a bullet wound that helped him find one.

Although he'd been with a detective agency since his racing accident, it isn't until some two-bit hoodlum drills a slug into his side that he is sent out on a case of his own. That is where he meets Zanna Martin, a woman who just might make life worth living again. But it is an even-money bet that he will be killed before she has the chance.

    " Great beginning to the Sid Halley stories! "

    " The first Sid Halley novel. A good yarn, as Sid struggles with his useless hand, his job, and the bad guy's scheme to make millions in housing developments. "

    " This book is well narrated by Tony Britton. I'm disappointed, though, that Britton doesn't do a lower-class accent for Sid. Britton proved that he could carry an Australian accent throughout an entire book in For Kicks, and Sid is a character from the lower classes, so it would be nice to have that accent here. Perhaps I'm spoiled by the lovely Welsh accent of the actor who played Sid in the mini-series based on this character (Mike Gwilym). "

    " This was one of the first Dick Francis books I read; I don't know if I've read them all, but I've read every one I've found in the various libraries that I've used over the last 25 years. His writing is crisp and clear, his characters likable, even if they are quite similar to each other is many respects. If you like mysteries in an easy reading style that engage you, you can't go wrong with a Dick Francis book. "
