Description

Internationally popular Dick Francis packs his equestrian mysteries with as much breath-taking suspense and danger as any neck-and-neck thoroughbred race. In this New York Times best-seller, he combines the hazard of investing in horses with the calculated risk of high finance to create a plot that twists and turns around every corner.

It seems a sure thing when young investment banker Tim Ekaterin underwrites a multi-million-dollar loan for a stud farm. The owner plans to purchase the championship racehorse, Sandcastle. But when disaster stalks the famous stallion and his offspring, Tim is plunged headlong into deception and murder.

Winner of three Edgar Awards and named a Grand Master, Dick Francis creates extraordinary characters from people who could be your next door neighbors. Narrator Simon Prebble's authentic accents and expert pacing will hold you spellbound as this exciting thriller races from the absorbing first chapter to the startling finish.

display_descriptionAn investment banker arranges the purchase of a champion racehorse and gets caught up in murder in this New York Times bestseller that's “fraught with violence, conspiracy and, of course, horses” (The Boston Globe).

Tim Ekaterin raised millions of dollars to finance the purchase of Sandcastle, a champion racer, only to discover an apparent defect in the horse. Investigating further, Ekaterin learns that the business of investment banking is nothing compared to the cutthroat world of horseracing—a world where violence and murder only raise the stakes...
