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.

Terrible Accents!

The overall story was pretty good although the main character seems a bit old fashioned in a modern world... but I nearly stopped listening as the accents were so bad.
Martin Jarvis is a fantastic narrator but it turns out he's not great at Irish accents or Puerto Rican for that matter. It was painful.

Not your best.

What would have made Triple Crown better?

A decent story line.


What could Felix Francis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He had obviously researched a great deal for this book and he wanted his readers to learn all about the drugs and what they did to the horses. There seemed to be more about the research than a story which involved people.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

The start as I always look forward to a book written by the Francis family.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Triple Crown?

Certainly the seconds with the solicitor at the end an intelligent man would not let his solicitor get away with such rubbish.


Any additional comments?

So disappointed, you are a fiction writer and this means a story which should draw you in and keep you involved not turn you off with too much boring information. Most of all make it believable even if we are dealing with Americans.
