Publisher's Summary

Randall Drew is prevented from carrying on 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 almost irresistible pressure is brought to bear. 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.

    Story
    "Interesting characters and setting."
    What did you love best about Trial Run?

    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.


    What about Tony Britton’s performance did you like?

    He brings his characters to life so well.
