This could be the scoop of a lifetime. It seems that the horse's owner and trainer Eddie Truman, has one or two skeletons in his cupboard that he would rather not reveal to the authorities, and so he employs Ben to investigate. As the date of the Gold Cup draws ever closer, it is stilll unclear as to whether the missing horse is still alive. Where could a valuable racehorsebe hidden for so long? What is the secret from Truman's past that he will not share, even with Ben. Ben finds himself tested, both physically and psychologically, as he uncovers a tale of prejudice, ambition and heartbreak."@en ;
