A classic mystery from Dick Francis, the champion of English storytellers.

Just after learning that his stepfather is gravely ill, artist Al Kinloch, returning to his remote home in the Scottish Highlands, is attacked by four men. They ask one question - 'where is it?' - then leave him for dead.

Unfortunately, the thugs who beat him up and the person behind them will make sure that Al doesn't survive their next encounter...
