Tor Kelsey, an undercover agent for the Jockey Club's security service, is involved in the attempt to rid racing of one of its most notorious villains: Julius Apollo Filmer.

The court, however, does not go along with their beliefs. But Tor knows that to let Julius even suspect the service are still on his tail would mean certain death for several witnesses.

Meanwhile, several racehorse owners have planned a luxurious train trip across Canada, with race meetings fixed for every major city - and Julius Apollo Filmer and Tor are on the passenger list.

It's not long until the beautiful journey through the Rockies gets uglier by the minute as Tor finds himself pushed to dangerous limits to defeat Filmer's wily scheming . . .

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