About this book
The 3rd father-and-son racing thriller collaboration is sure to be a dead cert for the autumn bestseller lists. On the first day of Royal Ascot, bookmaker Ned Talbot is counting his losses as a succession of favourites romp home. But then a man steps out from the crowd claiming to be Ned's father; less than an hour later he's been stabbed by an unknown assailant and Ned finds himself in race to solve the riddles his father's left behind him.
Royal Ascot's first day, and bookmaker Ned Talbot watches helplessly as a string of favourites come in. With the punters totting up their winnings, he counts his losses. Then an old man steps forward with a very different claim. The father Ned never knew - long ago believed killed in a car crash - is standing before him.
