Set in the cut-throat world of horse racing, Gamble is a heart-pounding thriller packed full of suspense, mystery and intrigue.
Nick Foxton once won the Grand National, but then a terrible accident cut his racing career short.
Years later, he returns to Aintree as a spectator, but once more finds himself the centre of attention.
Minutes before the race starts, his colleague Herb Kovak is shot dead. The gunman vanishes, and the police want answers.
Nick can't think of anyone who would want Herb dead, but when he finds a threatening message crumpled in Herb's coat, he begins to question everything he knows about his friend.
And on learning that he is the benefactor of Herb's will, Nick is certain that something is not right.
It looks like he's next in the killers firing line . . .
