Publisher's Summary

To the Jockey Club, the racing world would be a better place without Julius Apollo Filmer. An expert in corruption with a devastating line in witness intimidation, and proving to be a slippery character to put behind bars. Baffled, they call in undercover security agent Tor Kelsey to keep an unflinching eye on Filmer and his associates. A mission that takes him from the finest of English racecourses to the wild Canadian interior, on a luxury transcontinental train journey to end them all. On board, a troupe of actors are playing out a murder mystery to amuse their wealthy passengers. Ideal cover for a secret investigator with secrets of his own. And ideal cover, as it turns out, for an ice cool blackmailer with murder on his mind.

Dick Does It Again

I will count this as one of my favourite Dick
Francis books. It has everything you expect from him; humour, crime, a hint of romance, a history on rail travel, and all done in an extremely entertaining way. His research is extensive, so I trust everything he writes in relation to the racing industry in Canada, the travel industry, and Canadian Rail. Bravo Mr. Francis.

Good fun read...takes place partially in Canada!

What did you love best about The Edge?

Dick Francis stories always entertain me. Mystery surrounding horses make for a good read for a horse lover. I particularly enjoyed the train mystery portion of the story, and that the train ride takes place in Canada. The only small and silly issue I had was the VIA Rail pronounced as individual letters instead of 'via' the word, which is how us Canadians pronounce it.
