A mystery combined with politics and horse racing. I found it to be slow paced in places, but I stuck with it and it got better.

Back to his roots, in this work, Francis' hero is a jockey, although he gets fired as a jockey on the very first page! The charge is drug use--bogus, of course--but it throws our young (17) hero into an entirely unfamiliar world of politics. Classic Dick Francis.

If you are a horse lover and you are not reading Dick Francis, now is the time to start. Politics, suspense and horse racing-what more could you ask for! Most horse racing fans are familiar with equestrian author, Dick Francis. This is another of his many tales. English Parliament setting and the dangers and corruption within the racing world make this a "hard to put down" story. I am slowly making my way through everything this author has written. This is one of his better ones. It is a good mystery, a different story angle and there are HORSES in it!
