Synopsis: "A tour de force...A steadily high level of interest, comedy, suspense, and surprise."
The Great Transcontinental Mystery Race is not only a glittering rail junket that promises the oportunity to race a thoroughbred on some of the world's great courses, but is something more: an intriguing mystery will be enacted on board, which passengers will be invited to solve. But included on the guest list is one Julius Apollo Filmer, justifiably reputed to be the most ruthless operator lurking in the racing underworld, and he's planning a strange plot of his own. For Tor Kelsey, undercover security agent for the British Jockey Club, a scenario of imaginary mayhem is about to explode into a nightmare of real and bloody murder.
Product Description: The latest novel by Dick Francis, author of 26 best-selling thrillers, an autobiography, "Sport of Queens", and a biography of Lester Piggott. His book published in 1987, "Hot Money", went straight to Number One of the best-seller lists.
