Horse Racing may be known as the `Sport Of Kings`, but it also has a long association with crime, corruption and murder. Murder At The Races presents a worldwide selection of stories by famous authors including Dick Francis, John Francome, Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, Leslie Charteris and Steve Donoghue. This omnibus features all aspects of racing - the race meetings themselves, the countries they are held in where racing has long been a popular sport. There are stories about the jockeys and their mounts, and the special pressures and temptations they face, as well as a section on the bookies and punters who are such an essential element in racing.
