Publisher's Summary

Sid Halley, the ex-champion jockey turned private investigator, is facing new dangers, new deeply demanding decisions.  

His friend Ellis Quint has everything he could want: fame, youth, money, good looks, and talent. What Sid has to figure out is why he has committed such an obnoxious crime. On the morning set for the opening of Ellis’s trial, at which Sid is due to be called as a witness, other people’s miseries explode and send him spinning into days of hard rational detection and heart-searching torment.   

Troubled, courageous and unwilling to admit defeat, for Sid Halley it is business as usual...

Dick Francis Forever

I believe that of all DF protagonists, Sid Halley IS DF ! This particular book proves it! Tungsten describes the Great Dick Francis to a T! He is greatly missed.

Can’t beat Sid Haley

I may like Kit Fielding a little more, but Sid’s series is a winner.

Simon Prebble is a favorite as well.
