Francis at his best ... with plot and character beautifully interwoven, sex and violence, revelation and mystery superbly blended' Sporting Life David Cleveland is looking forward to Norway. A change of scenery, an old friend and a straight-forward looking case. An English jockey has gone missing; and so have the racecourse takings. It all looks so simple until a dead body turns up ... unannounced. The Racecourse Committee fields questions like some Norwegian Politburo and the only answers Cleveland gets are violent ones ... from a gang of professional killers. So, with maverick Marxist Erik Lund playing minder, he constructs a trap for his would-be assailants ... with himself as bait.
