Smokescreen by Dick Francis
Edward Lincoln had scaled the Himalayas, survived deadly car chases, defeated scores of assassins. As a film action man he'd even suffered stoically at the hands of sadistic directors.
After finishing his latest film, he's asked to visit South Africa to discover why a dying friend's horses are suddenly doing so badly on the race track. Unfortunately, this attempt to help a friend soon puts Lincoln in harm's way. From a nearly fatal interview to a dangerous mishap in a gold mine, it seems only luck is keeping him alive.
But fate has more in store. When the scene in the Kruger wildlife park begins to resemble Lincoln's latest big-screen adventure, even he will wonder what comes next...
