Praise for Triple Crown
“Felix has proven a champion storyteller. . . .
Triple Crown is an engaging thriller that bursts out of the gate and maintains a good place throughout. Francis pulls back the curtain on American horse racing, giving readers what goes into getting a thoroughbred ready for the starting gate, as well as the stark differences between racing, and law enforcement, on either side of the Atlantic.”—
“Felix Francis continues the run of his “Dick Francis novels” (after his father) with this sixth solo racetrack mystery, and it’s another well-crafted nail-biter… Felix Francis has his father’s gift for deft plotting and for creating memorable characters, but his prose is much more expansive… As in all novels in the Francis line, readers will learn a great deal about horses, racetracks, and, here, the tough life of grooms. The action builds to a hold-your-breath climax and brilliant resolution. Another winner in the Francis stable.”—
Felix Francis, a graduate of London University, is an accomplished outdoorsman, marksman, and pilot who has assisted with the research of many of his father's novels. The co-author of DEAD HEAT, SILKS, EVEN MONEY, and CROSSFIRE, and the author of GAMBLE, BLOODLINE, REFUSAL, DAMAGE, and FRONT RUNNER, he lives in England.
Dick Francis was the author of more than 40 mysteries set against a horse-racing background. Among his numerous awards are three Edgar Awards, the Crime Writers' Association Cartier Diamond Dagger, and the Mystery Writers of America's Grand Master Award. He died in February 2010 at the age of 89.
