Description

Jefferson Hinkley is back in the newest Dick Francis thriller by the New York Times-bestselling author of Damage. In his role as an undercover investigator for the British Horseracing Authority, Jeff Hinkley is approached by a multi-time champion jockey to discuss the delicate matter of losing races on purpose. Little does he know that the call will set off a lethal chain of events, including the apparent suicide of the jockey and an attempt on Hinkley's own life. Never one to leave suspicious events alone, Hinkley begins investigating the jockey and the races he may have thrown. But there are others out there who intend to prevent his inquiry from probing further . . . at any cost.

Professional reviews

"Amid the British horse-racing world, Jeff Hinkley, an undercover investigator, finds himself the target of assassins following a discussion with a top jockey about race fixing. Seasoned actor and narrator Martin Jarvis reads with gusto, displaying both his experience and long association with the series, as well as his talent for accents and characterization. Jarvis makes this an easy listening adventure, reflecting the suspense in the plot with excellent timing and creating a wide range of distinct characters that span the whole of the horse-racing scene and the world beyond. Horse-racing fans will naturally be drawn to this, but it also offers enough mystery and suspense to appeal to a wider audience. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
