The latest searing, intrigue-filled blockbuster from the Champion Storyteller.When defence barrister Geoffrey Mason hears the judge's guilty verdict, he quietly hopes that a long and arduous custodial sentence will be handed down to his arrogant young client. That Julian Trent only receives eight years seems all too lenient. Little does Mason expect that he'll be seeing Trent again much sooner than he'd ever imagined.Setting aside his barrister's wig, Mason heads to Sandown to don his racing silks. An amateur jockey, his true passion is to be found in the saddle, on a thoroughbred, pounding the turf. But then a fellow rider is brutally murdered - a pitchfork is driven through his chest - and the prime suspect is champion jockey Steve Mitchell. The evidence is overwhelming.Mason, reluctant to heed Mitchell's pleas for legal advice, soon finds himself at the centre of a sinister web of threat and intimidation and is left fighting a battle of right and wrong, and more immediately, a battle of life and death...his own.

Thrilling as ever

The only thing bugging me was - as great as Martin Jarvis is, as special as his voice sounds - for me it was a tiny bit irritating that he sounded a good time older than the first-person narrator is supposed to be.

But as ever a very thrilling story. It made my 5-hour-long car-travel seem to pass by in an blink of an eye - I didn't even stop once!
