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.

Pedestrian

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.

A very interesting story on American Racing

Would you consider the audio edition of Triple Crown to be better than the print version?

Have not read the print version so no comment

Who was your favorite character and why?

Paddy, he is the story

Have you listened to any of Martin Jarvis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is the first tine I have listened to Martin Jarvis and was very impressed with how he presented the characters. Those that were meant to be threatening were. He is able to convey, by subtle changes in his voice, the emotions within the characters. Very good.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

No real idea

Any additional comments?

Whilst the story was interesting it was not Dick Francis

Narrator with no accents!

Martin Jarvis narrated a previous book in this series which was set in England. He did a sterling job. However, this one required American and and Irish Spanish accents. They were all dire! The plot was the normal horsey detective romp.
