Nach dem Tod von Dick Francis ist das Familiengeschäft nun in den Händen seines Sohns Felix, der hier erstmals als alleiniger Autor auftritt: Nicholas Foxy Foxton ist ein ehemaliger Jockey, dessen Karriere durch einen schrecklichen Unfall vorzeitig beendet wurde. Auf dem Grand National Rennen wird er Zeuge, wie sein Freund und Kollege Herb Kovak ermordet wird, einer Exekution gleich. Wie gut kannte er Kovak wirklich? Und welche Rolle spielt ihr gemeinsamer Boss? Nicholas "Foxy" Foxton, a former jockey who suffered a career- ending injury, is out for a day at the Grand National races when his friend and coworker Herb Kovak is murdered, execution style, right in front of him-and 60,000 other potential witnesses. Foxton and Kovak were both independent financial advisers at Lyall & Black, a firm specializing in extreme-risk investments. As he struggles to come to terms with Kovak's seemingly inexplicable death, Foxton begins to question everything, from how well he knew his friend to how much he understands about his employer. Was Kovak's murder a case of mistaken identity ... or something more sinister?show more
