Trial Run

From a New York Times–bestselling “master of crime fiction and equine thrills,” an expert equestrian investigates death threats against a Russian jockey (Newsday).

Dick Francis, Edgar Award–winning master of mystery and suspense, takes you into the thrilling world of horse racing.

The last place veteran horseman Randall Drew wanted to go was Moscow. But when his royal highness the prince asks a favor, one doesn’t refuse.

The Royal Family is worried about the prince’s brother in law, a jockey and Olympic hopeful. Unfortunately a jealous Russian competitor has sworn to kill him if he sets one hoof in Moscow. So Randall leave behind his thoroughbred horses and loving girlfriend to investigate.
