Some brief overview of book

After constant requests from fans to bring back Sid Halley, the champion jockey turned investigator of Odds Against and the breakout thriller Whip Hand, Dick Francis does just that in his new novel. Although more than a decade has passed since the publication of Whip Hand, little time has elapsed in Sid Halleys life. Still in his mid-thirties, he remains troubled, courageous, unwilling to admit defeat to disabling injury or corruption.

Now, though, Sid faces nineties dilemmas and hazards even more serious than those he once faced in horse racing, the passion that cost him his hand, and the only sport so dangerous that ambulances follow the athletes from start to finish (The Philadelphia Inquirer). I had this friend that everyone loved, Halley says, and I put him on trial.... I grieved for the loss of a friendship, for a man who still looked the same but was different, alien... despicable.

I could much more easily have grieved for him dead. Having exposed an adored racing figure as a monster, Sid must testify at the mans trial. But the morning of his appearance, a tragic suicide shatters the proceedings and jars Halleys conscience.

Plagued by regret and the suspicion that theres more to the death than has yet come to light, he is catapulted into days of hard, rational investigation, heart-searching torments, and the gravest of perils. Business as usual for Sid...
