Steeplechase jockey Kit Fielding has just ridden another winner for his patron - the Princess - when his distraught twin sister Holly comes to him with terrible news. A newspaper is printing stories which will put her husband, Bobby Allardeck, and his stables out of business.

Putting aside the age-old Fielding-Allardeck feud, Kit decides to try to find out who is behind these cruel stories.

This, he quickly discovers, puts a lot of noses out of joint.  No one to be put off easily, he keeps digging, upsetting powerful and ruthless people who'll do anything to protect themselves.

But this is family and Kit will risk everything - including his neck - to find the truth.
A classic mystery from Dick Francis, the champion of English storytellers.
'Dick Francis's fiction has a secret ingredient - his inimitable knack of grabbing the reader's attention on page one and holding it tight until the end.' Sunday Telegraph
