When amateur jockey Ian Pembroke uncovers a dark secret from the past, he finds himself in a situation more dangerous than a high stakes horse race. Thirty-three-year-old Ian has had an unusual family life. His spectacularly wealthy father has been married five times. And the last Mrs. Pembroke was recently found smothered-with her head in a bag of potting soil. Now his father has become the target of mysterious "accidents". As Ian plunges into the role of bodyguard, deadly forces of greed, hate, and vengeance swirl about him.

Professional reviews

"Ian Pembroke becomes the protector for his much-married, wealthy father, who lately has been menaced by some mysterious accidents. Ian's previous estrangement from his father and his large group of half-siblings and their greedy spouses both fuel the plot and generate mystery in this thriller. Reader Simon Prebble's soft, melodic voice enhances the likable personality of the narrator-hero, but other characters are differentiated only slightly. Unlike veteran Francis reader Tony Britton, who favors vocal versatility and drama, Prebble provides listeners with the familiarity and leisure of a good storyteller. Both methods emphasize different, legitimate aspects of the first-person Francis novels. G.H. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
