Young investment banker Tim Ekaterin suddenly finds himself involved in the cut-throat world of thoroughbred racing - and discovers his unexceptional world of business blown to smithereens. When the multimillion dollar loan he arranges to finance the purchase of Sandcastle, a champion, is threatened by an apparent defect in the horse, Tim searches desperately for an answer. And he falls headlong into violence and murder. Even so he cannot stop. He must find the key to the murders. And to Sandcastle.
