Synopsis

Discover the classic mystery from Dick Francis, one of the greatest thriller writers of all time 'A masterpiece from the master of equine fiction. Truly sensational from start to finish' 5***** Reader Review 'Tense, tautly-written, with memorable characters - an absolute cracker' 5***** Reader Review ______ Bert Checkov, a racing correspondent, drunkenly confesses to fellow Fleet Street hack James Tyrone that he's been giving his readers tips for years. Five minutes later, Checkov falls out of a seventh-floor window. Tyrone is convinced there's more to Checkov's death than meets the eye. When he starts digging, he discovers that many of Checkov's tips never even made it to the start. But the deeper Tyrone gets, the dirtier and more dangerous this business appears to be. If he's not careful, he'll be following Checkov to his death . . . Packed with intrigue and hair-raising suspense, Flying Finish is just one of the many blockbuster thrillers from legendary crime writer Dick Francis.

The same is true of his crime writing' Daily Mirror 'The narrative is brisk and gripping and the background researched with care . . . the entire story is a pleasure to relish' Scotsman 'Dick Francis's fiction has a secret ingredient - his inimitable knack of grabbing the reader's attention on page one and holding it tight until the very end' Sunday Telegraph 'A regular winner . . . as smooth, swift and lean as ever' Sunday Express 'The master of suspense and intrigue' Country Life 'Francis writing at his best' Evening Standard 'Still the master' Racing Post
