A racing thriller in which a champion steeplechase jockey goes unhesitatingly to the aid of a Princess, his chief patron, who is facing serious trouble.
Kit Fielding’s patron, Princess Casilia, is in real trouble. Her invalid husband is being threatened by a ruthless business partner. And to enforce the threat all the Princess’s best runners are being wantonly destroyed - shot by a bolt.
The only person she can turn to is Kit, but he has problems of his own. His fiance Danielle appears to have changed her mind. And his old feud with Maynard Allardeck, racing steward and hereditary enemy of the Fieldings, has once again violently intensified.
Wherever he goes, the champion jockey seems to attract bloodshed...
