Jockey Kelly Hughes and trainer Dexter Cranfield have been barred from racing-a devastating event for them both. The charge at the secret enquiry? Throwing a race for personal profit. It is a vicious frame-up, and worse, they have nowhere to turn to clear their names. Still, Hughes refuses to take the phony verdict lying down-even though his personal enquiry might have him lying down permanently.
"[Has] everything required in a modern thriller...an intricate plot that unravels skillfully, mayhem, sex, suspense, excitement, and surprise denouements."--New York Times Book Review
