I use Dick Francis books as a break between more serious reads, but really, I should be paying more attention. He's a master of plot and pacing.

shows once again why Dick Francis is a major brand name in the thriller genre; the components here include seamless and swift plotting, a wonderful mix of believable characters, suspense, and a bang-on horse-racing background. The Gold Cup locale is atmospheric and the medical background fascinating and informative.
Comeback is good solid Dick Francis. Standard good Dick Francis detective book. With the nice balance of anti hero, distressed victims and hint of romance. Comeback is educational, as is often the case with Francis books. I got more information than I could absorb about horse surgery and care! But it was interesting. I'd recommend Comeback wholeheartedly, especially to fans who intend to read every Francis novel. One person found this helpful.

The book was commercially successful and led him to write racing articles for the London Sunday Express for the next sixteen years. An admirer of the popularity of mystery novels, Francis always wanted to write one himself. When Francis's wife became worried about the state of their finances, she finally convinced him to try. He wrote Dead Cert which was accepted by a publisher and became a bestseller. Two years later he wrote Nerve and has continued at a pace of one novel per year since then.
His 30th novel, an 11-week PW bestseller in cloth, displays Francis's trademarks: seamless plotting, believable characters, suspense and a bang-on horse-racing setting, in this case featuring a veterinary surgeon plagued by a series of mysterious equine deaths.
