Shattered




When jockey Martin Stukely dies following a fall at Cheltenham races, he accidentally embroils his friend Gerard Logan in a perilous search for a stolen video tape. Logan is a glass-blower on the verge of widespread acclaim for the ingenuity of his work. Long accustomed to the frightful dangers inherent in molten glass and in maintaining a furnace at never less than 1,800F, he is suddenly faced with a series of terrifying threats to his business and to his life.

But the chilling race to find the tape throws more hazards in Logan's way than his dead jockey friend could ever have imagined.
