Young Daniel Roke runs a highly successful stud horse farm in Australia, but he dreams of escape from the grind of his daily routine. His salvation takes the form of the Earl of October, a high official in the committee governing steeplechase racing in England. Unexpectedly arriving at Dan's farm to question him about one of his stableboys, the Earl makes Dan an extremely unusual proposition. He fears horses are being drugged and suspects a widespread gambling conspiracy. Will Dan agree to act as a spy in order to uncover the plot? Overcoming his hesitations, Dan takes the plunge and thus escapes his drab life in Australia. And so he travels to England to begin a dangerous masquerade as a troublesome stableboy. He uncovers a diabolical scheme which puts his life in danger—and changes it forever.
