Tim Ekaterin raised millions of dollars to finance the purchase of Sandcastle, a champion racer, only to discover an apparent defect in the horse. Investigating further, Ekaterin learns that the business of investment banking is nothing compared to the cutthroat world of horseracing—a world where violence and murder only raise the stakes...

"The most elaborate plot Francis has yet devised."—The Washington Post Book World
"The unraveling...comes with all the breathless pace we have come to expect of this superb writer."—The New York Times Book Review
