Overview
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.
Jeff Hinkley, investigator for the British Horseracing Authority, has been seconded to the US Federal Anti-Corruption in Sports Agency (FACSA) where he has been asked to find a mole in their organization an informant who is passing on confidential information to those under suspicion in American racing. At the Kentucky Derby, Jeff joins the FACSA team in a raid on a horse trainer s barn at Churchill Downs, but the bust is a disaster, and someone ends up dead. Then, on the morning of the Derby itself, three of the most favored horses in the field fall sick.
These suspicious events can be no coincidence. In search of answers, Jeff goes undercover as a groom on the backstretch at Belmont Park racetrack in New York. But he discovers far more than he was bargaining for: corrupt individuals who will stop at nothing including murder to capture the most elusive prize in world sport, the Triple Crown."

Bestseller Francis’s less than inspired third horse-racing mystery featuring Jefferson Hinkley (after 2015’s Front Runner) takes Jeff, who works for the Integrity Service of the British Horseracing Authority, across the pond to assist a colleague in the U.S. Tony Andretti, the deputy director of the American Federal Anti-corruption in Sport Agency, suspects that one of his racing investigators has been tipping off the bad guys. Jeff is intrigued by the assignment, which coincides with the lead-up to the Triple Crown, and soon finds ample reason to support Tony’s fears after an undercover operation goes fatally awry. In an effort to flush out the culprit, Jeff goes undercover in the stables of George Raworth, the trainer of the Kentucky Derby winner, Fire Point, who may have benefited from the sudden illness that eliminated some of the competition. The high stakes and American setting compensate only in part for a familiar story line and a lead who’s less rounded than a typical hero of a similarly themed Dick Francis novel. Agent: Ed Wilson, Johnson & Alcock. (Oct.)
