Knock Down

He doesn't really want to do it, but ex-prize winning jockey Jonah Dereham soon finds himself bidding for a young steeplechaser. The money he's spending belongs to Mrs. Kerry Sanders, a wealthy American woman who wants the horse for the son of a special friend. Fine - for a generous commission, he'll buy the horse. What isn't fine is the crunch on the skull he gets after the auction. Unfortunately for his health, it is only the first in a series of abusive and downright illegal attacks that Jonah must survive before he ultimately figures out the real game that's afoot…
