Packed with intrigue and hair-raising suspense, Flying Finish is just one of the many blockbuster thrillers from legendary crime writer Dick Francis.
Henry Grey had a bad disposition. Or so his sister, his co-workers, and just about everyone else said. But Henry knew a different job was all he needed. His present career as an office worker and part-time amateur jockey would never do. He decides on a whim to join the bloodstock market, transporting racehorses around the world. And when he meets the glamorous Gabriella in Italy, he is sure he's hit the good life.
That is, until a horse unexpectedly dies in transit and a colleague vanishes. Then Grey discovers that both his predecessors went missing in curious circumstances – and begins to doubt the wisdom of his career change.
Either he turns detective or his own disappearance could be next.
