What's the worse way to die; At the end of a rope driven by your own shame and despair; Or savaged in the jaws of a black-hearted stallion who has hated you for years; If only the bankrupt gambler and the stable girl were alive to give us the answer;Jockey Rob Harding has found something better than riding a big winner; breeding one. When his two-year-old colt Goldeneye takes the July Stakes at Newmarket in some style, it seems he can lift Rob's failing business out of the mire. But there's a tragedy waiting round the corner... Rob's head girl Ivana, a horse-mad beauty from the Czech Republic, would also revel in Goldeneye's triumph except for the terrifying reappearance of her sadistic ex-lover Milos. She's run a long way to escape from him - but it looks like she hasn't run far enough...
