"In this superbly crafted collection of short stories-many of them new and never before published-the settings range from a spring race meeting at Cheltenham, England, where a middle-aged owner falls hopelessly in love with her jockey, to the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, where demon drink and wilting willpower take their toll. Dick Francis's fans have a wonderful treat in store: thirteen tightly knotted plots to marvel at, thirteen sets of classic characters to admire, thirteen stings in the tail to gasp over."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
