Trial Run by Dick Francis
London : Michael Joseph, 1978. First UK Edition. Hardcover. 238 pages ; 21 cm. $4.50 dust jacket, pages are unmarked and binding is firm.
Trust Dick Francis to produce another best-seller. This time his hero Randall Drew penetrates the Iron Curtain into Soviet Russia. He emerges, of course, victorious after a series of hair-raising adventures.
Randall Drew is prevented from carrying on his career in steeplechasing by poor eyesight. Restless and unsure of his future but pursuing an ardent love affair, he does not welcome an invitation to go to Moscow on a delicate investigation, but almost irresistible pressures are brought to bear. A mysterious entity 'Alyosha' is threatening a royally connected candidate for the Moscow Olympic Games; the candidate may be vulnerable to scandal which could set off intolerable diplomatic conflicts. The brief is vague, the opposition invisible and the stakes appallingly high.
Trial Run is the seventeenth in the unfailingly successful series which Dick Francis began when he retired at the end of his own thrilling career as a steeplechase jockey. In his stories he has travelled the world.
