Eddie Malloy is back in the winning saddle. Only fellow jockey Bill Keating is casting a dangerous shadow on the course with his frequent blackouts. And there’s something he wants to tell Eddie. Before he does, he’s found dead. The verdict is suicide - but Bill’s ex-wife isn’t convinced. She has the power to lure Eddie out of the saddle and into a dangerous investigation, which unnerves at least one of the suspects. Someone clearly wants to silence Malloy – for good. From the mud-spattered tracts of the English turf to balmy race-meetings in Barbados, Malloy follows a trail of fraud, bribery, sabotage and corruption to the heart of a conspiracy.
