Two days after breaking an ankle, steeplechase jockey Derek Franklin is informed that his older brother Greville has been critically injured in an accident. When Greville dies without ever regaining consciousness, Derek finds that he must (temporarily) take over his semiprecious stone importing business. Derek soon finds that among the facets of his late brother's life are a couple of race horses, a mistress and a habit of keeping as much as possible secret. Oh, and about a million and a half dollars of missing diamonds.
