"To the outside world it seems like Phil Nicholas has it all. For years he's been one of the best jump jockeys around - winning championship after championship. On top of the money and glamour, he's married to Julia, a sexy, beautiful, young woman who adores him. Unfortunately his good luck starts to run out when he suffers a devastating fall. His body heals, but his mind and confidence may be shattered forever. Flashbacks of his accident invade his dreams, rob him of his sleep, and freeze him in the saddle - an impossible situation for a jockey." "While Phil is battling to overcome his fear, his weighing-room colleague, Adrian Moore, is viciously attacked after losing a race he should have won. It's the start of a vendetta by someone determined to hurt those who break the rules of racing. If Phil wants to save the sport - and the woman he loves - it's time for him to recover his nerve."--BOOK JACKET.
