Longshot

Author(s): Dick Francis

Adult Fiction

Life as a writer is colder, hungrier work than John Kendall bargained for. Not even the survival guides he's written can help him. So when notorious racehorse trainer Tremayne Vickers approaches Kendall to write his biography, it's an offer he can't turn down. Kendall becomes immersed in his host's lifestyle: riding racehorses and getting to know the family. But then a local stable girl is found dead - and the party's over. A killer is lurking in the shadows. And Kendall's survival tips are about to become more useful - and more deadly - than he could ever have imagined.
