Malcolm Pembroke didn't get rich without making a few enemies - not least the five wives and nine children left like wreckage in his wake.

Malcolm Pembroke didn't get rich without making a few enemies - not least the five wives and nine children left like wreckage in his wake.

But when Moira, his fifth wife, is murdered and Malcolm believes that someone is out to get him, he knows of only one person he can turn to: his estranged son Ian.

Ian - an amateur jockey - wants nothing to do with his father until it becomes clear the old man's life is in danger. And worst of all the evidence suggests it's from someone in the family . . .
Can Ian work out who it is before they strike again?
A classic mystery from Dick Francis, the champion of English storytellers.
'Francis is on top form with this subtle and satisfying entertainment.'  Evening Standard
