Mpelled to find out exactly what is going on But the he discovers the longer the odds become for his survival.

The third collaboration between bestseller Francis and son Felix after Silks a taut crime thriller features an especially sympathetic hero Bookmaker Ed Talbot is struggling with his wife's mental illness even as technology threatens to give the big bookmaking outfits an insurmountable advantage over his small family business Soon after a man shows up at Ascot and identifies himself as Ed's father Peter whom Ed believed long dead a thug demanding money stabs Peter to death Ed is in for even shocks when he learns his father was the prime suspect in his mother's murder—and that Peter's killing rather than a random act of violence may be linked to a mysterious electronic device used in some horse racing fraud Ed must juggle his amateur investigations into past and present crimes with his demanding family responsibilities Though some readers may find the ending overly pat the authors make bookmaking intelligible while easily integrating it into the plot Overall a decent story not my favorite but enough to hold my interest
