A Dick Francis NovelBook - 2012
When commentator Mark Shillingford watches his twin sister Clare come second in a race, he's immediately suspicious. An accomplished and successful jockey riding the favourite, Clare should easily have won.
Shocked that she might have thrown the race, he confronts his sister. Yet just hours after defiantly admitting what she's done, Clare jumps from a London hotel balcony to her death.
Devastated and almost overcome with guilt, Mark goes in search of answers. What led Clare to lose the race? Why did she take her own life?
But as he stumbles closer to the truth about his sister, Mark discovers that Clare had a lot to hide. That behind her death lies a great deal more than some fixed races. And that it may not have even been suicide . . .
