Sarah Broadhurst's view...

If you have been looking for a Dick Francis fix for the last few years look no more, this author has picked up his crown. She sets her thrillers in different horsy areas, this is three-day eventing, but they really do have the same pace, authenticity and page-turning addiction as the master, but with better characterisation. Quite simply, she is terrific.

Comparison: Dick Francis, John Francome, Richard Pitman.
Similar this month: None, but try Karin Fossum or Lynda La Plante.

If you like Lyndon Stacey you might also like to read books by John Francome, Dick Francis and Felix Francis.

Synopsis

Deadfall by Lyndon Stacey

Lincoln Tremayne, heir to a viscountcy and manager of his father's Dorset estate, has one burning ambition - to be selected to ride on the British Olympic three-day eventing team. But his dream is about to be put on hold. Arriving at the stables late one night, Lincoln walks into a nightmare. Thieves have viciously attacked the stable owners' daughter, leaving her unconscious. As she lies in a coma, what appears to be freak chance sets Lincoln on the trail of the attackers. Disregarding the advice of the police and increasingly unpleasant warnings from those involved, he juggles sleuthing with his demanding job and a competitive riding career.

But, as the violence escalates, it becomes chillingly clear that someone is trying to kill him, and the race is on to find out who, before they succeed.

Insightful reader reviews and unbiased recommendations. I don't know how I chose books before Lovereading! An essential for all book lovers.

Sarah Harper

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.

Helen Jones

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
