A powerful novel of family life and human relationships set against the exciting background of a horseracing crime.

Richard Pitman introduces a wonderful new hero in Frankie Houlihan, a man who quit the priesthood for love and then lost his wife in a terrible accident. Trying to rebuild his life, Frankie accepts a job with the security team who investigate criminal activity in the world of horseracing, and that is how he gets involved -- in more ways than one -- with a suspenseful story of kidnap, cloning and family rivalry in London, Lambourn and Dublin.

Steeplechasing is still very much a country sport, and many of the horses are more like family pets than superstars. One such is Angel Gabriel and when he is kidnapped from the yard run by the Cassidy family, the strains on the family have far reaching consequences.

And in getting to the root of the scam, Frankie Houlihan finds himself travelling down just the road he didn't want to take...back into the tragedy at the heart of his own life.
