Ricky Alleyn, son of Troy and Roderick Alleyn, is taking an island break in an attempt to write a book.

The niece of the local riding school owner dies after making a difficult jump and is found later in a ditch. Meanwhile one or more people are involved in drug running between France and England.

Not long after Rory arrives in town, Ricky disappears.

Lateish story (I think written in the mid 70s), where the story line is grittier than Marsh's contemporaries(no cream teas here, heroin addiction and drug running is the name of the game, as is Hellfire and brimstone preachers)
