Sid Halley, the ex-champion jockey turned investigator who appears in Odds Against and Whip Hand, is back. In Come to Grief he faces new dilemmas, new dangers, new deeply demanding decisions. As the book opens, Sid Halley has uncovered an obnoxious crime committed by a friend whom he - and everyone else - has held in affection bordering on love. On the morning set for the opening of the friend's trial, at which Sid is due to be called as a witness, other people's miseries explode and send him spinning into pulverising days of hard, rational detection and heart searching torments.
