Enquiry, by Dick Francis

Kelly Hughes, horse jockey, is summoned to a steward's enquiry where he and his trainer are found guilty of deliberately losing a race. Deprived of his means of making a living, and threatened with losing his home, to say nothing of his reputation, he determines to get to the root of the conspiracy against him.

Going after the witnesses one at a time, he establishes that he's definitely been set up. And then things start to get rough: his car is sabotaged and he is nearly killed in a road accident...

Not bad, not one of the best though. May be OK for Ken.
