Publisher's Summary

Jefferson Hinkley is back in the newest thriller in the Dick Francis tradition, this time on a special mission to the United States to investigate a conspiracy involving the biggest horse races in the country.
The richest prize in racing. The perfect motive to commit a crime.
Jeff Hinkley, a British Horseracing Authority investigator, has been seconded to the US Federal Anti-Corruption in Sports Agency (FACSA), where he has been asked to find a mole in their organisation, an informant who is passing on confidential information to fix races.
Jeff goes in search of answers, taking on an undercover role as a groom on the backstretch at Belmont Park racetrack in New York. But he discovers far more than he was bargaining for, finding himself as the meat in the sandwich between FACSA and corrupt individuals who will stop at nothing, including murder, to capture the most elusive and lucrative prize in the world: the Triple Crown.

My dad and I both love Dick and Felix Francis and look forward to September each year. Dad got first read this year and he was underwhelmed. I got second read and I was underwhelmed. Dad isn't the world's best literary critic but he said "They always grab me and I can't put them down but this one doesn't" - he was right, I could take or leave it. It didn't grab me from the start then there was a whole lot of narrative with heaps of technical information that just seemed to keep on coming, none of the short sentences, action packed plot that characterised older books. Dick rarely repeated his heroes but we have had several now with Jefferson as the hero and he's wearing a little thin - there wasnt even a decent love contact this time. Sorry, disappointed with this one.
