Crisis manager Harrison Foster is summoned to Newmarket after a fire in the Chadwicks' Castleton House Stables kills six valuable horses, including the short-priced favorite for the Derby. There is far more to the "simple" fire than initially meets the eye. For a start, human remains are found among the equestrian ones in the burnt-out shell. All the stable staff are accounted for, so who is the mystery victim?

Harry knows little about horses - indeed, he doesn't even like them - but he is thrust unwillingly into the world of Thoroughbred racing. And before long, it's clear that the Chadwick family is wildly dysfunctional, with intergenerational resentment and sibling rivalry bubbling like volcanic magma beneath a thin crust of respectability. As Harry delves deeper into the mystery, he ignites a fuse that blows the volcano sky high. Can Harry solve the riddle before he is bumped off by the fallout?
