Steeplechase jockey Derek Franklin has had more broken bones than he cares to count, but it seems his latest injury could very well bring his days on the racecourse to a screeching halt.

Yet that's the least of his concerns when his brother turns up dead, leaving Derek as the sole inheritor of his estate.

It doesn't take long for Derek to learn that his brother - a magistrate who imported and sold semiprecious stones - was keeping more than his share of secrets.

Now Derek must recover $1.5 million worth of missing diamonds and find out who wanted his brother dead, or else his career won't be the only thing in danger of being cut short . . .

Packed with intrigue and hair-raising suspense, Straight is just one of the many blockbuster thrillers from legendary crime writer Dick Francis.
