Still recovering from the physical and mental scars of his last case, Detective Inspector Nick Dixon is dragged deep into a murky world of betting scams and murder, where people will do anything to keep their secrets. Even if that means silencing a DI who keeps asking the wrong questions about the wrong dead jockey...

Another fantastic listen
Damien Boyd does not disappoint
Exciting. Believable characters.
Hard to pick one, but the ending was gripping.
He is a bit ponderous to start with but as the story picks up pace, so does his reading. It is clear and, in being fairly dispassionate, somehow adds to the excitement.
In a sense, yes, but actually didn't want it to be over too quickly either.
We listened to it on a long journey in the car - really good for that because although it has its twists and turns, it is not complicated or esoteric.
