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.

A special one!

A special Dick Francis with a special hero - starting with him already being (happily) married, which few of his protagonists are.
Tony Britton always seems to have an "too old" voice for the 30ish old blokes (no offense intended) but once more I am amazed of the many dialects he seems to use 'at ease'. And also he gives every role such character, that I have no real problem with his voice not fitting to the "picture" I have of the protagonist's voice in general.
This book has been incredibly enthralling and I finished it in way too short time. When the finale was read, I almost cried, feeling the protagonist's desperation.
so: Definitely worth it!
