Going for the Gold (John Putnam Thatcher, Bk 18)
Going for the Gold - John Putnam Thatcher, Bk 18 Author:Emma Lathen John Putnam Thatcher, senior vice-president of the Sloan Guaranty Trust, is not thinking of anything out of the ordinary--except, perhaps, a few gold medals--when he goes to Lake Placid to join the Sloan's president at the Winter Olympics. — And when he watches the practice run of Yves Bisson, the new French wonder, nothing more is on his mind th... more »an the thrill of the ski jump and the crisp perfection of the sunny weather.
But the peaceful day is shattered when the graceful skier collapses in mid-air and tumbles, skis flailing, to the ground. Once again John Thatcher has landed in the midst of murder...
The teams demand protection against suspected terrorists. The Sloan's harassed branch manager reports that over a half-million dollars' worth of counterfeit checks have surfaced. A well-liked female athelete is accused of taking drugs while competing. And a sinister coach, a marooned French tour group, and a sudden blizzard add to the chaos.
It takes Thatcher's level-headed thinking and ingenious investigating to unscramble the conflicting evidence. Then the grim truth is exposed...and what follows is a race against time more important than any Olympic trial--a race to prevent yet another murder.
