9780061492235: Knockdown

It's the classic law of the invader. Get to the strongest guy and smash him, and then watch the weaker ones fall like ninepins. Which is exactly what a vicious gang of horse dealers decides to do when their little kickback scam is being threatened with a spot of old-fashioned honesty.

But they haven't reckoned with bloodstock agent Jonah Dereham, a man who belies his quiet exterior with a steely and implacable resolve. They can threaten him, try to burn down his home, even attempt to kill him. But they'll soon wish they hadn't.

Because Dereham flushes out the real scam, and with it finds out just who the real Mr Big is. And when he does that, life suddenly becomes cheap...

Product Description:

For a generous commission, ex-prize-winning jockey Jonah Dereham agrees to bid on a special horse for a wealth American lady. Unfortunately, for him, the crunch on his skull after the auction is not the last. There's more in store, until he manages to figure out the real high-stakes game being played....

Review:

'Few match Francis for dangerous flights of fancy and pure, inventive menace.' (The Boston Herald)

'Adventure novels so gripping that they cry out to be read in one gulp – then quickly reread to savor the details skipped in the first gallop through the pages.' (Houston Chronicle)

'[The] master of crime fiction and equine thrills.' (Newsday)
