Randall Drew is prevented from carrying on with his career in steeplechasing by poor eyesight. Restless and unsure of his future but pursuing an ardent love affair, he does not welcome an invitation to go to Moscow on a delicate investigation, but irresistible pressure is hard to refuse.
A mysterious entity, "Alyosha", is threatening a royally-connected candidate for the Moscow Olympic Games; the candidate may be vulnerable to scandal which could set off intolerable diplomatic conflicts.
The brief is vague, the opposition invisible. And the stakes appallingly high.

"Interesting characters and setting."
The descriptions of how cautious Russians must be in their interactions with foreigners were very well done.As always, Dick Francis writes well and the pace is absorbing.
He brings his characters to life so well.
Dick Francis books are the greatest. I only wished I could get all of his books
