"A great kick of a book, not so much a mystery as an adventure, is read by the inimitable Simon Prebble. The hero, Tor Kelsey, goes undercover to identify a villain on a transcontinental Canadian train full of race horses and their owners. The criminal, Filmer, has blackmailed race horse owners into selling him their finest animals. The racing commission's only edge in this rolling battle of wits and brawn is Tor. This is Francis and Prebble in top form, with all the details right on track from Toronto to Vancouver. B.H.B. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
