'I couldn't have loved this delightful doorstep of a read any more' - Daily Mail

Rupert Campbell-Black is back and consumed by one obsession: that Love Rat, his adored grey horse, be proclaimed 'Leading Sire', the champion stallion of the cut-throat world of flat racing. He is determined to trounce the stallion owned by his detested rival Cosmo Rannaldini, which means abandoning his racing empire at Penscombe and his darling wife Taggie, and chasing winners in the richest races worldwide, from Dubai to Los Angeles to Melbourne.

Luckily, the fort at home is held by Rupert's assistant Gav, a genius with horse, fancied by every stable lass, but damaged by alcoholism and a vile wife. When Gala, a grieving but ravishing Zimbabwean widow moves in as a carer for Rupert's wayward father, it is not just Gav who is drawn to her. A returning Rupert finds himself dangerously attached.

Gala adores horses, and when she switches to working in the yard, her carer's job is taken by a devastatingly handsome South African man who claims to be gay but seems far keener on caring for the angelic Taggie. And as increasingly sinister acts of sabotage strike at Penscombe, the game of musical loose boxes gathers apace...
