About this title


Ex-jockey Sid Halley is now a crack private investigator and, checking out the mysterious failings of Rosemary Caspar's husband's horses, finds himself with a major expose involving a menacing syndicate, his ex-wife's boyfriend, and other unsavory characters

From the Back Cover:

There are two worlds in racing. Winning and losing. Private detective Sid Halley has gone from one to the other - fast. First his career as a jockey ended when he lost his hand in a fall. Then his wife said a cold good-bye. Now he’s on the trail of thugs who crush losers. With vicious pleasure.

These are people who aim to win - at any price. There’s a syndicate of owners with a sideline in violent kidnapping. And Trevor Deansgate, a bookmaker whose hatred of favourites goes one deathly step too far...

For the sake of his health, Halley had better return to winning ways. Because to lose is to die...

‘Superb... this is Mr Francis’s best book. And that’s high praise’ Sunday Mirror
