New York Times bestselling grand master of crime fiction
Jockey Freddie Croft discovers a high-stakes conspiracy that exposes the seedy underside of horse-racing-and faces deadlier odds of survival than in any steeplechase run.
At 35, Freddie Craft has retired as a steeplechase jockey and now runs a fleet of motor horseboxes transporting runners from their stables to the races, or brood mares to the stud farms. When a hitch hiker is picked up and someone dies, Freddie is drawn into a complicated conspiracy.
