Signed by the author to the ffep "November 1973. Patricia Hammond, very best wishes. Dick Francis." David Cleveland, investigator for the Jockey Club, goes to Norway in response to an appeal from the executive of Oslo racecourse. A British jockey, riding in Norway, has disappeared, and with him has gone a day's takings from the turnstiles. The Norwegian police have found no trace of him, nor have the British, and the case is being filed as just one more unsolved theft. David Cleveland is a last resort. He goes without much expectation and finds himself in waters as dark and deep as the fjords. 224pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Jacket Designed by BEVERLY LE BARROW.
