About this title

Synopsis:

"Fast-paced, meticulously plotted...Nobody sets up a mystery better than Dick Francis."
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
Travel writer John Kendall didn't think he was doing anything too out of the ordinary when he tramped off to rural England for an interview with a successful race horse trainer. Soon enough, however, Kendall realizes that completing the book will be tricky at best. In fact, the perils described in his survival manuals pale next to the dangers in rural England....
Selected by the Literary Guild, the Mystery Guild, and Doubleday Book Club
From the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher:

Hired to write the biography of a famous racehorse trainer, John Kendall soon finds himself racing to solve a murder before the killer catches up with him. His continued survival, it seems, would be considered a longshot. "The best thriller writer going."--The Atlantic Monthly
