Gene Hawkins is a fixer for his boss Mr Keeble: if Keeble has a problem Gene fixes it. It's that simple. Sometimes it requires the Luger he carries - mostly it doesn't.

Gene Hawkins is a fixer for his boss Mr Keeble: if Keeble has a problem Gene fixes it. It's that simple. Sometimes it requires the Luger he carries - mostly it doesn't.

Now Keeble has summoned Gene back from a long-overdue holiday. It seems a very expensive stallion has been taken in Kentucky. It's the third high-value kidnapping in a few years.

Keeble wants his horse back. Gene is asked to go out there and find it. But what Gene doesn't know is that he's about to get involved with blackmailers and murderers. Looks like that Luger will see some use. . . A classic mystery from Dick Francis, the champion of English storytellers. 'Another one for the winner's enclosure.'  The Times
