First UK edition, first print hardback of TO THE HILT by Dick Francis, published by Michael Joseph Ltd., London, in 1996. Signed with a dedication by the author on the title page.
The book is in very good condition (Clean black cloth boards with gold lettering on the spine which has very slight creasing to the botom edges of the spine) with minor wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (light creasing to the edges). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions. There is slight spinal lean.
Alexander Kinloch, artist, has worked out a good pattern for his life. His home is a small bothy on a remote mountain in Scotland; he paints on commission, from which he derives both pleasure and a decent income; he lives alone and likes it.
One day, however, Alexander's peace is violently shattered when he returns home and finds a group of strangers waiting for him. After a scuffle, he is left for dead, with only the wind and the words "Where is it" ringing in his ears. And the days that follow contain more danger than he could ever have imagined.
Once again Dick Francis proves that for sheer narrative pace and ingenuity of plot he is second to none.
Dick Francis, who died in 2010 aged 89, was a unique figure, a champion steeplechase jockey who, without any previous apparent literary bent, became an international bestselling writer, the author of 42 crime novels, selling more than 60 million copies in 35 languages. The Mystery Writers of America gave him three Edgar Allen Poe Awards for the best novel of the year and In 1996, honored Francis as a Grand Master for a lifetime's achievement.
