Description

Originally published in 1962, "Dead Cert" was the first of the bestselling thrillers which have made Dick Francis one of the most popular and successful writers in the world. "Dead Cert" is about Alan York, an amateur jockey, who finds himself tangling dangerously with a ruthless gang of crooks. A pretty girl, an intelligent child, a fuel on a horseback and a manhunt across the Sussex countryside are some of the ingredients in this gripping thriller about the shady side of the racing world. The background is superbly authentic and the pace would not shame a two-mile hurdle race.

Author Biography

DICK FRANCIS has written thirty-eight novels, a volume of short stories (Field of 13), his auto-biography (The Sport of Queens) and the biography of Lester Piggott. He is just acclaimed as one of the world's finest thriller writers. He has received many awards, amongst them the prestigious Crime Writers Association's Cartier Diamond Dagger for his outstanding contribution to the genre, and the Mystery Writers of America have given him three Edgar Allan Poe Awards for the best novel of the year, and in 1996 made him a Grand Master for a lifetime's achievement. He was awarded the CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List in 2000. Dick Francis divided his time between England and an island in the Caribbean.
