Melbourne during the Depression. 
A seedy, corrupt city.
Someone has struck at the heart of Australia's soul: they have killed the horse that would have won the Melbourne Cup.
For what motive? Profit, blackmail, a betting scam? Only Tom Pink, the rider of the murdered horse, can find out.
Tom, born into the underworld he now tries to defeat, exposes graft and blackmail that reaches to the upper echelons of Melbourne society.
His life and the lives of those he holds close will never be the same again.

From AudioFile

Set in Melbourne, Australia, during the Depression, this lively mystery was originally written as a serial. 
An expert narration by Stig Wemyss lifts the story of race horse poisonings and true love to another level.
Two young men in love with the same swell girl compete for her by racing in the Melbourne Cup--the most prestigious horse race in Australia.
Listening to this production is like returning to the days of radio drama.
There are cliff-hangers and multiple adventures, and hero Tom Pink's ride in the Melbourne Cup is not-to-be-forgotten audio theatre.
Reading this book in print could not possibly be as exciting as this outstanding work of oral acrobatics.

  •     Another great Bony mystery!
  •     Bony mysteries are the best! Great description of 1020's - 1950's Australian life and environments. My late Range Scientist husband loved them and the recordings do not disappoint, a great way to revisit an old friend, Inspector Bonaparte.
  •     I'm not completely through it yet, but I'm enjoying it.
