A Dick Francis NovelBook - 2013
Sir Richard Stewart, chairman of the British Horseracing Authority, wants Sid Halley to look into some suspicious race results, but Sid gave up the investigating business six years ago, and he thought nothing could make him go back.
He thought wrong.
The following day, Sir Richard is found dead and Sid receives a threatening call from a man with an Irish accent. The man insists that Sid Halley should investigate the alleged race fixing, and it is only when Sid's six-year-old daughter goes missing that Sid realizes that he may pay the ultimate price for his refusal. With his life in tatters and his family in mortal danger, Sid is forced to act.
Maybe he has underestimated his foe, but has his foe underestimated the guile and determination of Sid Halley? Extreme situations demand extreme solutions and Sid is desperate to get his life back - or die trying . . .
