Recorded by arrangement with Simon & Schuster Audio, Inc. Produced in the studios of Recorded Books Productions, Inc., New York. ISBN 0-7887-0467-2. "In Come to Grief, Dick Francis, the best-selling author of over thirty books, brings back one of his most popular characters: Sid Halley, the wiry jockey turned detective who captured the attention of so many fans in Whip Hand. Filled with the crisp humor and quick-stepping plots listeners have come to expect, this is Dick Francis at his best. Someone is maiming two-year-old colts, the cream of the future racing crop. Sid, whose hand was ruined in a race, is drawn to the plight of the magnificent horses, each found with one foot lopped off. But when he charges an old friend---a pillar of the horse breeding community---with the horrible crimes, the repercussions are swift and terrible. Dick Francis gives Sid an assortment of unlikely chums to aid him and keeps up a brisk pace as the investigation spreads far beyond the paddocks. The plot twists through paths of obsession and retribution, keeping the reader guessing until the last clue crosses finish line. "Few writers have maintained such a high standard of excellence for as long as "Dick Francis."---San Diego Union-Tribune" (from cassettes and case cover)|
