In this mystery from New York Times bestselling author Dick Francis, a jockey becomes the sole inheritor of his late brother’s business, horse, mistress, and enemies.
Steeplechase jockey Derek Franklin has had more broken bones than he cares to count, but it seems his latest injury could very well bring his days on the race course to a screeching halt. But that’s the least of his concerns when his brother turns up dead, leaving Derek
as the sole inheritor of his estate. It doesn’t take long for Derek to learn that his brother—a magistrate who imported and sold semiprecious stones—was keeping more than his share of secrets. Now Derek must recover $1.5 million worth of missing diamonds—and find
out who wanted his brother dead—or else his career won’t be the only thing in danger of being cut short …
“If you read the first paragraph of Straight, I’m willing to wager, whatever the odds, you will spring to the finish line.”—The Washington Post
