When Robber Earl falls at the last fence at Bangor-on-Dee everybody suspects foul play and blames the jockey, Bendon Donoughue. Everybody, that is, except Brendon himself. He knows that he did nothing wrong – or even unusual.
Brendon finds surprising allies in a Labour Lord and his daughter. The Champion jockey has only a few days to clear his name and save his career. Was the horse doped or was he? The sleazy truth is tracked across racecourses from the Riviera to the Welsh Marches.
David Lipsey has written a racing thriller that moves as fast as the horses.
