Overview

JJ Manion knows that trying for a big comeback after an injury and resuming his former status as Sydney's top jockey by riding Shadowmaker to victory in the upcoming races will be tricky at best. He never counted on the murder of a friend and fellow jockey drawing him into a mystery with life-or-death stakes.
With the help of his close friend Vince Thomsen, a Colombo-style detective, JJ uncovers a trail of shady jockeys that point to a corruption that goes straight to the heart of sports throughout the city.
With the fate of Sydney horse racing hanging on the outcome of the big derby race, will JJ and Shadowmaker manage to be first across the line in this action-packed mystery?
