Summary from the author: "After preventing the kidnapping of a wealthy Middle-Eastern business man's son, Bodie and Doyle are assigned to keep Karim Khorsandi safe until he signs an important oil contract. They team up with private investigators Halley and Barnes who are guarding Khorsandi's racehorse but it all goes awry. Bodie and Doyle have to unravel a complex knot of family loyalties and politics to find their suspect. They'd prefer to have stayed at home playing kinky sex games."

Reviews/Reactions

This story was reviewed by LilyK aka sc_fossil on Crack Van on November 15, 2011:

"This is a crossover with a British programme of the same era as Pros called The Racing Game. I'd never heard of it before I helped Dawnwind edit this story in preparation for this year's Big Bang. I rented the DVD from Netflix and it's a super cool series. You do not need to view the series to read this story. Dawn gives enough information that it's easy to understand who Sid and Chico are. If you're interested in investigating more, there is info HERE. (Note: for some odd reason, the IMDB page is down so I've put a link to the amazon.uk page. (Fixed: IMDB Page for The Racing Game.
I hear a lot of calls for nice long case fic. Well, here is it. Full of investigation and the lads and danger. I think it's a great romp around London and the countryside, and an interesting look into the world of horse racing."
