Very simply put, Dick Francis writes to his usual outstanding level, a great story with some good twists. Unlike most of his books focussing on horse racing this one is more focussed on kidnapping, but who is kidnapped links with the racing world: a female Italian jockey, the child of a horse owner, and the Senior teward of the Jockey Club. If you enjoyed an action story then this is for you.
