Publisher's Summary

James Tyrone was the troubleshooting gracing correspondent of the Sunday Blaze, a newspaper dedicated to exposing scandals I the noisiest (and most profitable) way. Ty was accustomed to hot water, but from the day a Fleet Street colleague died after give him some serious advice, he found himself wading deep into more danger than he expected. What he thought to be the fairly routine uncovering of a minor racing fraud turned into a major hunt involving ruthless international crime. A spanner in the works gets chewed up by the cogs, Ty couldn't emerge unscathed. And throughout he had to deal with the further problems of his difficult marriage and a perilous liaison with a beautiful, chilly-hearted dress designer.

Chauvinistic morality and a stupid ending

A change for dick Francis, who's usually so good - the story could have been interesting except for being underpinned by the protagonists - poor, sex starved creature - endlessly cheating (or wishing he could cheat) on his paralysed wife, whose anxieties are finally put to rest by her realising that she's been too demanding of him - that he just has the usual manly needs - and that if she unworriedly stops caring and just "stops hurting" at his cheating, they'll all be perfectly happy.

Unsatisfying, frustrating and a big letdown.

One of the best

Narrator great. Story compelling. Nice to have a different take on romance (quite a risqué topic) love how he describes the racing. A+++
