A thoroughbred thriller that keeps your heart racing to the finish
What's the worse way to die? At the end of a rope driven by your own shame and despair? Or savaged in the jaws of a black-hearted stallion who has hated you for years? If only the bankrupt gambler and the stable girl were alive to give us the answer ?
For a jockey they say there's no thrill like riding a big winner but Rob Harding has found something better - that's breeding one. His three-year-old colt Goleneye is the product of Rob's own stud farm and, when the horse wins the Two Thousand Guineas at Newmarket, it looks like he might give Rob's business much-needed shot in the arm. But no amount of prize money can deflect the tragedy that's waiting round the corner.
Rob's head girl Ivana would also revel in Goldeneye's triumph except for the terrifying reappearance of her sadistic ex-lover Milos. She's run a long way to escape from him - but it looks like she hasn't run far enough.
COVER UP is an exhilarating twists-and-turns murder mystery set in the high-stakes world of horse-racing and written by one of its legendary figures.
