Unfortunately I do not think it is anywhere near as good as the other published novels by the same authors. The reason for this is that the story is too 'over the top' and unbelievable.
Poor Eddie Malloy (the hero of previous novels) is now reduced to a physical wreck with body parts missing and a face ravaged by frost bite... but still he fights the baddies. Apart from having been a top jockey, he has climbed Everest and has made a lot of money as a top business man. He then gets blown up and badly burned, but, hey, all in a days work for this hero. His newly found best mate Frankie - who adores and worships Eddie! - is trying to solve the mystery of who is trying to kill him.
The book is still a good read but I found it somewhat annoying with its exaggerated heroics and bizarre story line. Maybe I prefer to be closer to home and there weren't many horses in this either!
