Having inherited this book, I picked it out of the bookshelf for a fast and easy read. I was pleasently surpised to discover that this was en excellent crimenovel. Sid, an ex-jockey, has been sitting around the office of a investigative firm for 2 years with nothing to do. Unaware of his father-in-law's plot, he is dragged in to a crime involving a reacecourse, valuable property and a villain with obscure pleasures. Sid's job is in short to save the racecourse from the hostile takeover.
I found myself dragged into the story, and towards the end, it was impossible to put the book down.
I highly recommend this, and am heading for another Frances novel.
