Jove 12347 10 Lb. Penalty GOOD
10 Lb. Penalty
By Dick Francis
Francis' ability to link compelling mystery-thriller plots with horse racing is legendary. Here, a father and son are working together to defeat a deadly adversary. Ben Juliard had wanted to become a jockey, but his father pulled strings behind the scenes, and Ben went on to university and then to work for his father's campaign.
The father, a successful businessman, is running for a seat in Parliament. His opponents are the widow of the late Member, and a racketeer who is bankrolling her campaign for nefarious reasons of his own. With each step up the ladders of power come new dangers to the aspiring candidate. As the attacks grow more lethal, Ben discovers that politics can be the most dangerous horse race of them all.
First paperback printing, 1998. Clean and bright, with light corner wear. Faint creasing in the spine. Pages are white. Binding is tight, slightly concave.
