Minutes before the biggest event on the racing calendar, Nick’s affable American colleague Herb Kovak is shot at point-blank range, the gunman disappearing among the stunned crowd. Along with the police, Nick is left baffled as to why anyone would want to kill such an apparently gentle soul.
With the press speculating links to gangland crime and a crumpled note containing a threatening message found in the dead man’s coat, Nick begins to doubt how well he really knew Herb. And on discovering Herb had named him as the benefactor of his will, Nick questions why he has been entrusted with the legacy. Is this a generous gift from a friend or is it, in fact, a poisoned chalice?

His father's son
Felix has produced a story with pace and excitement, set in the familiar backdrop (to Dick Francis fans) of equestrian pursuits.
An enjoyable thriller, which is characterised and delivered well by Michael Maloney.
The most appropriate compliment I can think of is... “one for all the Dick Francis fans”.

As good as his Dad
This is a great listen. From the first page I was gripped, staying up late to finish it. Michael Maloney's narration is speedy and exciting and his characterisation is superb. The twists at the end are excellent. Highly recommended!
