Publisher's Summary

When a sick friend asks Edward Lincoln to investigate the comprehensive failure of a string of racehorses, he agrees to help out. But it is impossible for him to go about the task quietly and unnoticed because he is now a world-class star of action films, in which he always plays the hero. And the apparently easy survey of the string of racehorses blows him through a smokescreen into circumstances, where, to survive, he has to make himself become the man everyone else already thinks he is.

Less horses - just as gripping

A totally new scenario with racing only incidental to the story. Dick Francis showed his skill in researching new backgrounds, in this case movies and gold mining, but sets them in a complex story involving a large group of characters which includes a good supply of suspects.
The tension is maintained at the usual high, page turning, level.
I am rereading all of the series and thoroughly enjoying it. This is among the best.
