Blackwell North Amer
Dick Francis has garnered international acclaim for fusing supercharged action and taut moral drama into best-selling novels of suspense. Set amid the world of high-stakes horseracing, which is his special turf, Decider ranks with this enormously popular author's finest work.
Free choice? According to architect, engineer, and jobbing builder Lee Morris, there's no such thing. Choice is preordained by personality, of that the young entrepreneur is sure. Then he becomes involved with Stratton Park racecourse, which faces ruin at the hands of the combative clan that wholly owns it. Connected with but not related to any of the family's warring factions, he nonetheless is drawn into the fray - reluctant, yet attracted by compulsions he does not fully comprehend.
But when the infighting turns violent, Lee finds he is a major player in a supremely dangerous game. With multimillions on the line and menace edging closer, he wrestles with the most critical decision of his life. One path leads to safety, the other to disaster, even death. Which is which? And does he really have a choice at all?
Utterly gripping and deeply thoughtful, Dick Francis's Decider is in every way a thoroughbred.

As usual some of Francis portrayals of women are a tad bit off, but the mystery is good and we learn a few things about remodeling old buildings (Francis' shtick) in an exciting setting.
