Typical Dick Francis but with a little twist at the end.
This was a great book. I couldn't put it down. It jumps right into the action and stays there with some good suspence and romance thrown in too. I'm not even into horses or horse racing, but when I want to read a book I'm sure will be good, I pick up one of Dick Francis' books.
Excellent Dick Francis mystery!
