Champion jockey Sid Halley retired from racing when his hand was smashed in a fall. Now he works as a private detective - which is proving to be no less dangerous to life and limb.

Recuperating from a bullet wound, Sid is asked by his father-in-law to investigate some potentially shady activity involving Seabury racecourse and a ruthless property dealer.

But the closer Sid gets to those determined to get their hands on Seabury, the more he finds himself in harm's way.

The odds are against him - but that's exactly when Sid is at his best . . .

Packed with intrigue and hair-raising suspense, Odds Against is just one of the many blockbuster thrillers from legendary crime writer Dick Francis.
