Synopsis: Peter Darwin, a young First Secretary in the Foreign Office, returns from Tokyo for some leave before taking up a new post. Trained to penetrate the truths behind facades, he has to use all his diplomatic skills to unravel not political puzzles but the cruel fates which befall racehorses.

From the Inside Flap: When globe-hopping British First Secretary Peter Darwin returns to his childhood home fo a visit, he is sorry. Waiting for him were long-hidden memories, a string of racehorse deaths and homicide. As Darwin begins to realize that the key to all of it involves his own past, he wishes he'd never come back, because he just might never leave again --- alive....
"One of Francis' most winning novels."
