Description
Common sense said that the whole idea was crazy—but when Danny Roke is offered a huge sum to move to England and help the Earl of October uncover a suspected racehorse-doping scandal, he finds the proposal intriguing, in this 1965 thriller from Dick Francis (his fourth, following Nerve). After leaving his job as proprietor of an Australian stud farm, Danny soon has his hands full working undercover in Yorkshire, and while the earl's attractive daughters Patricia and Elinor distract his attention, he becomes ever more deeply involved with the vicious swindlers he is out to entrap. It seems neither the money nor the swindle can keep Danny's mind on the job; perhaps the death of Tommy Stapleton, the Earl's original investigator, will wake him up a bit. Once one of the top horse-racing jockeys in Britain, Dick Francis (1920–2010) went on to become one of the world's most celebrated mystery writers, inventing his own genre of thrillers set in the world of horse racing, and winning an unparalleled three Edgar Awards for Best Novel as well as the CWA's Diamond Dagger and the MWA's Grand Master Award.

"Few things are more convincing than Dick Francis at a full gallop."—Chicago Tribune
