Matt Shore is a pilot down on his luck. Once, he'd flown big jets and dropped supplies in war zones.  Now he's ferrying high-class passengers between English racecourses. 
But when one eventful trip ends with his plane exploding in a ball of fire, Matt knows he's not that unlucky. 
When the police confirm it was a bomb, Matt realizes he has a problem. One of his passengers must have been the target – the question is who? 
Matt needs to find out fast – because he's scheduled to ferry the same people over the coming weeks. 
Can Matt stay alive long enough to stop the bomber? 
A classic mystery from Dick Francis, the champion of English storytellers.
