FRANCIS, Dick. Come to Grief. London : Michael Joseph, (1995). First Edition. Pp. (6,1-[279],(3). 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Sid Halley, the ex-champion jockey turned investigator who appears in "Odds Against" and "Whip Hand" is back. In "Come to Grief" he faces new dilemmas, new dangers, new deeply demanding decisions. As the book opens, Sid Halley has uncovered an obnoxious crime committed by a friend whom he - and everyone else - has held in affection bordering on love. On the morning set for the opening of the friend's trial, at which Sid is due to be a witness, other people's miseries explode and send him spinning into pulverising days of hard, rational detection and heart-searching torments. Troubled, courageous and unwilling to admit defeat, for Sid Halley it is business as usual.". - from the dj flap. Very good in dustjacket (with both UK and Canadian prices on dj flap). 16.00
