Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Trainee jockey, Noel Woodman, has been kicked to death by an aggressive stallion at a horse racing stables near Bridgwater. Everyone is convinced it was an accident, except his brother, Jon, home on leave from Afghanistan.

Still recovering from the physical and mental scars of his last case, DI Nick Dixon is drawn into the investigation at the point of a gun and soon begins peeling away the layers of secrets and lies.

With the pressure mounting, his determination to unlock the case is tested to the limit, and, as the hunt for the killer gathers pace, Dixon finds himself fighting for his life in the dead of night.

My Review:
 This could possibly be one of the best mystery books I have ever read it is the third book in the series, Detective Inspector Nick Dixson of Avon and Somerest Police is drawn into a domestic hostage situation and from that into the death of a young stable guy which had already been ruled as accidental.

But as Nick peels away every layers of deception Detective Inspector Nick gets an education in horse racing, betting and potential crimes associated with this activity, but once again the final surprises and enlighten Nick and his crew and will readers as will.

My Rating:
