Book Description
Young wine merchant Tony Beach's exposure of a liquor scam sparks a brutal murder and forces the corruption in the liquor industry to spread into the realm of thoroughbred horse racing.

My Review:
This was my first Dick Francis book. I enjoyed learning about the different methods of making scotch. His characters were very interesting. I liked Tony and Gerard with their investigative skills and the crazy lady who shot her rifle up the chimney in order to clear the bird's nest was very humorous. I thought Francis' writing style was easy to read. My only complaint is that Dick Francis left a few things hanging in regards to the incident in the beginning of the book. Who really let the horse trailer go into the tent and why? I look forward to reading another of his books and I would recommend this book to those who love cozy mysteries about horse racing and making and distributing alcohol.
