Discover the classic mystery from Dick Francis, one of the greatest thriller writers of all time

'You can always rely on Dick Francis for a page-turner, and this is no exception' 5***** Reader Review

Edward Lincoln has scaled the Himalayas, survived deadly car chases, and defeated scores of assassins. As a movie action man he's even suffered stoically at the hands of sadistic directors.

After finishing his latest film, he's asked to visit South Africa to discover why a dying friend's horses are suddenly failing on the racetrack. Unfortunately, Lincoln's attempt to help a friend soon puts him in harm's way.

From a nearly fatal interview to a dangerous accident in a gold mine, it seems only luck is keeping him alive.

And in life, unlike the big screen, there's no coming back from dead . . .

Packed with intrigue and hair-raising suspense, Smokescreen is just one of the many blockbuster thrillers from legendary crime writer Dick Francis.
