About this title

Synopsis:

The richest prize in racing. The perfect motive to commit a crime ...

Jeff Hinkley, a British Horseracing Authority investigator, has been seconded to the US Federal Anti-Corruption in Sports Agency (FACSA) where he has been asked to find a mole in their organisation, an informant who is passing on confidential information to fix races. 
 
Jeff goes in search of answers, taking on an undercover role as a groom on the backstretch at Belmont Park racetrack in New York. But he discovers far more than he was bargaining for, finding himself as the meat in the sandwich between FACSA and corrupt individuals who will stop at nothing, including murder, to capture the most elusive and lucrative prize in the world – the Triple Crown.

Review:

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."--Mystery Scene

"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."--Booklist
