Roland Britten, accountant and champion steeplechase jockey, wakes in confusion. He's cold, blind, and can't find his hands. Something above prevents him from sitting up, and a rumbling din fills his hearing and rattles his bones. Obviously, he surmises, it is pitch-dark and he is bound near some kind of engine. But why? And where? And hen is quickly recaptured in a deadly game of cat and mouse. What is at stake is his very life, and that is worth any risk...
