"Sid Halley, ...is the sleuth of... [Odds Against]. As the story opens he has just been shot in the stomach in the course of his duties as a private enquiry agent...Convalescing with indecent and painful haste, Sid finds the pace growing hotter and hotter as he investigates the cunningly contrived decline of a race-course, and comes to close and spine-chilling grips with the men responsible."
