Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This thriller gives a dazzling insider's view of horse racing, accurately capturing the sport's ambience, characters and action. (Aug.)
Library Journal - Library Journal
Amid a welter of racing detail, Daniel tells the story of an aging jockey, Georgie Blane, who has been offered 60,000 to throw an important race. He fails to do so, and risks the subsequent consequences. It is certain that the author knows his stuff. However, he jams in so much detail and so many characters that the reader is swamped and confused. He also brings in Georgie's shaky marital situation, his penchant for the ladies, and a brother who always seems to be in some sort of trouble. The violence and foul language don't help the story either. Only for libraries with many British racing fans, for whom Dick Francis and nonfiction are insufficient.-- Robert E. Greenfield, formerly with Baltimore Cty. P.L.
