Smokescreen




The classic mystery tale from legendary crime writer Dick Francis, in a stunning new paperback package.

Edward Lincoln has scaled the Himalayas, survived 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 visits South Africa to discover why a dying friend's horses are suddenly failing on the race track. 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 . . .
