I loved the books by the author’s father, Dick Francis, so how in the world have I missed those by the son? Darned if I know, but I won’t miss any more of them, I can guarantee that. I’m going back to start with the first one, in an effort to catch up. However, Triple Crown happily stands on its own, so you won’t have to fret at having missed anything.
You just jump right in here, at the beginning, the same as the protagonist, Jefferson Hinkley of the BHA, the British Horseracing Authority. But this time around finds him in the US in springtime–all because of the Triple Crown.
