The grand master of crime fiction

For a generous commission, ex-prize-winning jockey Jonah Dereham agrees to bid on a young steeplechaser on behalf of a wealthy American woman. But immediately following the auction two thugs demand ownership of the horse. Now Jonah must figure out the high-stakes game being played--before he becomes its next casualty.
