On the day he quits his job as an assistant trainer, amateur jockey Ian Pembroke gets a call from his estranged father Malcolm. Malcolm is immensely rich and he thinks somebody is trying to bump him off. The police aren't of the same opinion; since Malcolm remains a top suspect in the murder of his fifth wife the coppers think Malcolm is making it all up. It doesn't take long for Ian to come round to his father's way of thinking and he then takes on the role of bodyguard while trying to figure out which member of the extended family is a murderer.
