"Any mention of Dick Francis to one of his readers brings unrestrained eruptions of enthusiasm," wrote J. P. Donleavy in The New York Times Book Review. Now Dick Francis rides back onto the best-seller lists with a taut suspense tale of enormous power and craft, set once more amid the volatile circus of thoroughbred racing. Once a blacksmith, now famous and respected as a newspaperman, Valentine Clark knows everyone who is anyone in the racing world. Aged, confused, blind and dying, he harbors a daunting secret that he is desperate to be rid of. He makes his last confessions to his visiting film-director friend, Thomas Lyone, whom in his delirium he makes for a Unburdened and at peace, Valentine passes away, yet his legacy remains, guarded by Thomas. On location in Newmarket, Thoms is troubled by the old man's secret. Seeking to understand this puzzling revelation, he uncovers a long-unsolved mystery that he soon finds is very much unforgotten. But as much as he wants to learn more, it seems he already knows too much. Imaginative and decisive though he may be he will need superhuman courage and extreme cunning to stay alive. Dick Francis's genius has never been better showcased than in Wild Horses.
