Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0515123463, Mass Market Paperback)From bestselling author Dick Francis, Nerve is the story of a struggling young jockey--a misfit in a family of accomplished musicians--who discovers that his troubling losing streak is caused not by a lack of skill or confidence, but by something far more sinister.
(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 14 Feb 2013 13:47:24 -0500)
It was as though there was a hoodoo on the whole jockey tribe. Art Mathews shot himself, Pip Pankhurst's season came to an abrupt halt, and Grant Oldfield needed help from a psychiatrist. Then Robb Finn started riding losers. Too many to be a coincidence.
