A stunning successor to Whip Hand, starring ex-champion-jockey-turned-investigator Sid Halley. Having exposed an adored racing figure as a monster, Sid must testify at the man's trial. But, on the morning of his appearance, a tragic suicide shatters the proceedings and jars Sid's conscience, leading him to believe that there's more to the death than has yet come to light.Dick Francis brings back Sid Halley, champion jockey-turned-PI of his earlier novels Whip Hand and Odds Against, in this troubling story. Ellis Quint has everything he could want: fame, youth, money, good looks, and talent. What Sid has to figure out is why his friend Ellis also has a streak of sadism that leads him to cut off horses' hooves in the dead of night. Sid's search for the truth leads him into the lowest depths of human nature. Winner of the Edgar Award for best mystery novel. - Amazon
