Publisher's Summary

Melbourne during the Depression. A seedy, corrupt city. Someone has struck at the heart of Australia's soul: they have killed the horse that would have won the Melbourne Cup. For what motive? Profit, blackmail, a betting scam? Only Tom Pink, the rider of the murdered horse can find out.

Tom, born into the underworld he now tries to defeat, exposes graft and blackmail that reaches to the upper echelons of Melbourne society. His life and the lives of those he holds close will never be the same again.

A previously lost classic of Australian crime fiction.

    Loved the story. Australian larikanism along with mystery. Was surprised and a little sad at the ending but a very enjoyable few hours. Tom Pink is perfect.
