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.More

Dick Does It Again
- H. Anthony
Good fun read...takes place partially in Canada!
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.
