Summary

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, black-mail, 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 the 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.
