Halley most emphatically does not want to take this case. He and Jenny had a nasty, ugly divorce and she is particularly hurtful and bitter towards him. But his regard for Roland finally pushes Halley to accept this case, too. Commander Lucas Wainwright, Director of Security to the Jockey Club, thinks the same thing and both men ask Halley to look into these syndicates.
The more Halley looks into this case, the more dangerous it becomes for him as some very nasty people get wind of his investigation.
