"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
