Going to the Winner of the Canada/US Happy Days Sweeps. The book is being sent directly from Better World Books.


His 30th novel, an 11-week PW bestseller in cloth, displays Francis's trademarks: seamless plotting, believable characters, suspense and a bang-on horse-racing setting, in this case featuring a veterinary surgeon plagued by a series of mysterious equine deaths.
