Lifeline

by John Francome; Headline. RRP $34.95. 279pp.

After a bit of a dud last up with Tip Off, former steeplechase jockey John Francome is back to the standards of his earlier work.

This time there's a crook jockey and a straight jockey, gambling baddies, and some foreign mobsters thrown in for good measure ... not to mention a grisly death -- every horse rider's nightmare of having a foot stuck in the stirrup and the horse bolting.

Lifeline is a real page turner and the only complaint is that it ended too quickly. Bring on the next.
