I LOVE Dick Francis and have read everything he's written, even though I do not follow horse racing. I love his corageous, no-nonsense heroes and he always gets me in the end!
From the book cover: "... ex-jockey Sid Halley, in a compelling tale of crime and justice, becomes convinced that one of his closest friends - and one of the racing world's most beloved figures - is behind a series of shockingly violent acts....he faces the most troubling case of his career. No one wants to believe that Ellis Quint could be guilty - so the public and the press are turning their wrath against Halley instead. Now he's facing opposition at every turn - and finding danger lies straight ahead..."
A great read - I couldn't put the book down.
His books are ALWAYS a 5 star rating. You're in for a treat if you haven't read any of Dick Francis. My husband and I both have reread most of his books. Always a good mystery and good characters.
Great mystery and suspence.
Classic Francis: ex-jockey Sid Halley realizes a major figure in the racing world is behind some shocking violence.
