When race caller and television presenter Mark Shillingford calls a race in which his twin sister, Clare, an accomplished jockey, comes in second when she could have won, he believes the worst: that she deliberately lost, and the race was fixed. When Mark confronts Clare with his suspicions, she storms off--and it's the last time Mark sees her alive. Hours later, Clare jumps to her death from the balcony of a London hotel. Devastated and guilt-ridden over her death, Mark goes in search of answers. Why would Clare throw a race? What led her to take her own life? Or was it not suicide at all?

"[Felix Francis] has one priceless advantage. He couldn't have had a better teacher."--"The Washington Times" Praise for Dick Francis's "Gamble" "[Felix] Francis...proves himself more than capable of carrying on the family legacy alone...Francis shares his father's gift for brisk storytelling--and for creating a sympathetic, wounded, but determined hero."--"Publishers Weekly"
