Derby Day at Epsom Downs. A multitude of people crowd to watch the races: dukes and dustmen, bishops and beggars, privileged ladies and prostitutes. The gamut of Victorian society and a hotbed for crime and crooks of all kinds. With the nation a-flutter in the run up to this national event, a disembodied head is discovered on a passenger train at Crewe; the first in a murky course of events that takes in murder, fraud and race-fixing. Detective Inspector Robert Colbeck and his assistant are assigned to the case and are soon snarled up in a web of skulduggery stretching across the country. They are forced to ask themselves, just how much is someone prepared to hazard to win?

Disappointing,as the story concentrated on Horse Racing rather than that of the Railways as is more usual in this series. A severed head is found in a lady's hatbox,in the early part of the story. Inspector Colbeck investigates and the trail swiftly moves to the world of horses and the racing world.Not one of Marston's better efforts,in fact decidedly on the slow side. Not a Winner !
