A trainee jockey has been kicked to death by an aggressive stallion at the local stables. Deemed an accidental death, the case is closed. But when the jockey’s brother returns from active service, he sparks an armed siege, demanding the investigation be re-opened and the truth uncovered.
Still recovering from the physical and mental scars of his last case, Detective Inspector Nick Dixon is dragged deep into a murky world of betting scams and murder, where people will do anything to keep their secrets.
Even if that means silencing a DI who keeps asking the wrong questions about the wrong dead jockey…
Kickback is the third novel in the highly acclaimed DI Nick Dixon Crime Series.
