This Novella introduces Clem 'Lofty' Hills.
A former reasonably successful Jockey who suffered several falls one after the other that shook him to the core and took away his love of riding at speed on a galloping one tonne mass of muscle. His Mentor, Trainer and pseudo father-figure, Clive Montgomery of Montgomery Stables offered a future to the shattered man as a Private Investigator whose main source of income became oversighting the security role at large provincial and metropolitan Meets. Mingling with the Punters keeping an eye out for Pick-pockets, Betting Stub felons and rowdy drunken punters who had won too much, too soon!
Clem Hills' 'Office' was also his place of residence. A 3rd Floor former Cleaners' Room. At least it had running water and two windows that looked out on a dinghy, enclosed air-space.
