Synopsis: A tantalizing new Dick Francis mystery as violent and wild as the wind off the Scottish Highlands. Alexander Kinloch, an eccentric artist who lives alone on a Scottish mountainside, receives a card from his mother in London summoning him to the bedside of his dying stepfather. The news takes him by surprise, but the realization that his stepfather is unintentionally about to take Alexander to the grave with him is the shock that draws Alexander out of the untamed wilderness and into the much more perilous company of polite society.
Review: Twenty-nine year old Alexander Kinloch is an unusual chap. With a fervor for the bagpipes and a talent for painting "the passions of golf ... the conflict within the self," he's not what you'd expect as the fourth son of a Scottish earl. When his ailing stepfather seeks Alexander's help in reviving his bankrupt brewery, Alexander begrudgingly leaves his secluded highland cabin and enters a "race" to save his family's honor. The King Alfred Gold Cup, a two mile steeplechase that exemplifies the pride of the brewery, is his challenge, and his assignment is to secure the cup trophy, a valuable medieval chalice. As he emerges from his life as a near recluse, Alexander begins to understand the benefits and the costs of becoming a hero.
