"A tour de force...A steadily high level of interest, comedy, suspense, and surprise."
The Great Transcontinental Mystery Race is not only a glittering rail junket that promises the oportunity to race a thoroughbred on some of the world's great courses, but is something more: an intriguing mystery will be enacted on board, which passengers will be invited to solve. But included on the guest list is one Julius Apollo Filmer, justifiably reputed to be the most ruthless operator lurking in the racing underworld, and he's planning a strange plot of his own. For Tor Kelsey, undercover security agent for the British Jockey Club, a scenario of imaginary mayhem is about to explode into a nightmare of real and bloody murder.

Dick Francis, a former jockey, brings his experience of racing and life around the racetrack to his mysteries. (And so far Francis is a three-time winner of the Edgar Award for writing the best mystery of the year.) This horse racing background is appealing to my market area of Southern California. Racing is a popular sport amongst Southlanders.
--Nanci Andersen, Ballantine Sales
"A thrilling race . . . Action aplenty."

"It's obvious Dick Francis had a good time writing THE EDGE.
I certainly had a good time reading it."
The New York Times Book Review
"A tour de force . . . A steady high level of interest, comedy, suspense, and surprise."
