A classic mystery from Dick Francis, the champion of English
storytellers. Malcolm Pembroke didn't get rich without making a few
enemies - not least among the five wives and nine children left
like wreckage in his wake. But when Moira, his fifth wife, is
murdered and Malcolm believes that someone is out to get him, he
knows of only one person he can turn to: his estranged son, Ian.
Ian - an amateur jockey - wants nothing to do with his father until
it becomes clear the old man's life is in danger. And worst of all
the evidence suggests it's from someone in the family. Can Ian work
out who it is before they strike again? Dick Francis died in
February 2010, at the age of eighty-nine, but he remains one of the
greatest thriller writers of all time.
