Publisher's Summary

Free choice? There's no such thing, according to Lee Morris. Choice is pre-ordained by your personality. Stratton Park racecourse faces ruin in the hands of a squabbling family. Lee is slowly sucked into the turmoil, unwillingly on the surface but half-understanding the deep compulsions that influence his decisions. One road leads to safety, another to death. How do you know which is which?

Lee's choices and their consequences bring deadly results, but the road out of the quicksand is there, if he can find it. Horses and racing are familiar ingredients, but this time there are also children, houses, roots and decisions. Danger? Naturally. Stratton Park racecourse is worth multi-millions, and all of the Stratton family are playing to win.

My favorite of all the Dick Francis novels

There is something about the spare writing, the psychology of the main character and the compassionate exploration of what might be considered British aristocratic dysfunction that grabs me every time. The reading performance is outstanding. I have listened to this multiple times and am fed and full of appreciation each time.

Clinical but gripping

Apart from the racing world Dick Francis's novels are also set in a world of 'gentleman crooks' - rather clinical ("It's a fair cop, guv") but nevertheless gripping right to the last page. The plots are great; the way they are played out does make you wonder whether Dick Francis lived in the same world we all inhabit. Nevertheless, I would heartily recommend this - and, indeed, most of Dick Francis's books - to anyone wanting an exciting yet undemanding read.
