Summary
It's the third death on Cheltenham Gold Cup day that really troubles supersleuth Sid Halley. The former champion jockey knows all too well the perils of racing--but in his day, jockeys didn't usually reach the finish line with three .38 rounds in the chest. Yet this is precisely how he finds jockey Huw Walker--who only a few hours earlier won the coveted Triumph Hurdle. Just moments before the gruesome discovery, Halley had been called on by Lord Enstone to make discreet inquiries into why his horses appeared to be on a permanent losing streak. Are races being fixed? Are bookies taking a cut? And if so, are trainers and jockeys playing a dangerous game, with stakes far higher than they realize? Halley's quest for answers draws him even deeper into the darker side of the racing game, in a life-or-death power play that will push him to his very limits--both professionally and personally
