Max Moreton ist der jüngste Stern an Englands Sternekoch-Himmel. Doch sein Ruf ist gefährdet: Lebensmittelvergiftung nach einem Galadiner - das könnte das Ende seiner Karriere bedeuten. Der Meisterkoch kämpft um seinen Namen - und um sein Leben.

Dick Francis, geboren 1920, war viele Jahre Englands erfolgreichster Jockey, bis ein mysteriöser Sturz 1956 seine Karriere beendete. Fast 50 Jahre lang schrieb er Thriller, die das Pferderenn- und Wettmilieu als Hintergrund haben. Seine 42 Romane wurden alle Bestseller. Dick Francis starb 2010.
