Comeback



Foreign Office diplomat Peter Darwin is England, back to his childhood home of Gloucestershire. But instead of a pleasant trip down memory lane, Peter finds himself coming to the aid of a veterinary surgeon whose operating theatre is rapidly turning into an abattoir.

Foreign Office diplomat Peter Darwin is England, back to his childhood home of Gloucestershire. But instead of a pleasant trip down memory lane, Peter finds himself coming to the aid of a veterinary surgeon whose operating theatre is rapidly turning into an abattoir.

In fact a string of valuable racehorses have suffered unexplained deaths, and the police are baffled. When Darwin looks into the mystery he finds that his connections - and his memories - help him uncover criminal activities that stretch back all the way to his childhood.

But the more Darwin uncovers, the closer he gets to a killer who just can't stop . . . A classic mystery from Dick Francis, the champion of English storytellers. 'The finish had me sweating.'  Evening Standard
