Races and off-course intrigues provide the thrills in Graeme Roe's fourth Jay Jessop thriller, set in the run-up to the Amateur Jockeys' Championship
Two casino owners from Las Vegas plot to acquire a group of British racecourses for their Supercasino scam - and nothing is going to get in their way, certainly not someone like racehorse owner Jay Jessop.
Meanwhile, Jay's world is beset with problems, ranging from the purely domestic - his wife's attitude to his new, young and sexy assistant trainer - to more pressing ones, such as the unwelcome advances of an international porn star, the erratic and increasingly aggressive behaviour of one of his investors, and the fact that there might be a rival's mole in his stables. And then a host of unsavoury heavies descend intrude on his life, forcing him to make contact with his Eastend minder Benny and his gang to help Jay sort things out...
