From Dick Francis and his son, Felix, comes Geoffrey Mason-a defense barrister whose true passion is riding his Thoroughbred. Mason's two lives collide when a fellow jockey is accused of murdering a colleague with a pitchfork. Mason prefers not to get involved. But soon he is torn between doing what's right-and what will keep him alive.
The collaboration between Dick Francis and his son, Felix, has produced another sure-footed winner in Silks. Both the central theme and the story elements of this racetrack thriller are familiar…but this hero's useful perspective brings fresh excitement to a grand old sport.
