Description

Discover the classic mystery from Dick Francis, one of the greatest thriller writers of all time'Incredibly enjoyable and will deliver its kicks again and again' 5***** Reader Review'You can always depend on Dick Francis for an engrossing adventure' 5***** Reader Review'Edge-of-seat stuff, a real page turner' 5***** Reader Review______Daniel Roke owns a stud farm in Australia.

He's young, smart, hard-working and desperate for some excitement - all of which makes him the ideal candidate for the Earl of October, who has come visiting. The Earl is concerned about a horse-doping scandal that is destroying English racing.

He wants to pay Daniel to come back with him, pose as a highly corruptible stable lad and discover who is behind it. But when Daniel agrees, he doesn't realise just how close he'll have to get to find the truth. Nor how determined the criminals will be to prevent him living long enough to tell anyone . . . Packed with intrigue and hair-raising suspense, For Kicks is just one of the many blockbuster thrillers from legendary crime writer Dick Francis.
