Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First UK edition, first print hardback of RISK by Dick Francis published by Michael Joseph Ltd., London, in 1977.

The book is in very good condition (Clean black boards with gold lettering on the spine) with minor wear to the dust jacket which is not price clipped (only minor creasing to the edges, very slight rubbing to the bottom corner). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or inscriptions.

DICK FRANCIS was one of the most successful post-war National Hunt jockeys. The winner of over 350 races, he was champion jockey in 1953-1954 and rode for HM Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. On his retirement from the sport he published his autobiography, The Sport of Queens, before going on to write forty-one bestselling novels, a volume of short stories (Field of 13), and the biography of Lester Piggott. He was rightly acclaimed as one of the greatest thriller writers in the world.

Dick Francis was the winner of the prestigious Crime Writers’ Association’s Cartier Diamond Dagger and the only three-time recipient of the Mystery Writer of America’s Edgar Award for Best Novel, winning for Forfeit in 1970, Whip Hand in 1981, and Come to Grief in 1996, the same year he was make a Grand Master for a lifetime’s achievement. He was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in 2000.

"Roland Britten, thirty-one, bachelor, chartered accountant, spends his spare time riding in steeplechase races as an amateur jockey. An ordered life with a spice of risk - and much to his liking.

On the day of the Cheltenham Gold Cup his whole world changes violently. He finds himself the target of a vicious persecution for which he knows no reason, a mind-sapping mystery which, to save himself, he must solve."

251 pages.
