"Whip Hand" is a crime novel by Dick Francis, the second novel in the Sid Halley series. The novel received the Gold Dagger Award for Best Novel of 1979, as well as the Edgar Award for Best Novel of 1980. Whip Hand is one of only two novels to have received both awards (the other being John le Carré's The Spy Who Came in from the Cold). "Whip Hand" is a finely crafted, swiftly moving tale of detection. It is also the story of a failed marriage, whose partners are full of need but can no longer connect with one another, and a perceptive study--in spare, razor-sharp prose--of a fearless, incorruptible man who is the victim of his own capacity to endure pain and loss. A previous gift inscription on the back end-paper is present.
