Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------------THE EDGE by Dick Francis. ......gardening with vines......... HIGH STAKES is another of Dick Francis's deft forays into unusual professions that support the love of horses and racing. Successful inventor Steven Scott enjoys the sport of kings until he discovers that he has been betrayed and removes his stable from his trainer Jody Leeds. Jody thought he had a sucker to lead him into big time racing with a little gratuity on the side, but Jody gets even by casting Steven as the baddy who is out to ruin him. A love story intertwines its way through the novel with love and sex presented as normal, a relief from sensationalism. The climax to this novel is one of the most gruesome of all of Mr. Francis's stories, the ending satisfying. Dick Francis (born Richard Stanley Francis on 31 October 1920) is a British horse racing crime writer and retired jockey. Dick Francis has written forty-one international bestsellers and is widely acclaimed as one of the world's finest thriller writers. His awards include the Crime Writers' Association's Cartier Diamond Dagger for his outstanding contribution to the crime genre, and an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Tufts University of Boston. In 1996 Dick Francis was made a Mystery Writers of America Grand Master for a lifetime's achievement and in 2000 he received a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.
