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.

I use Dick Francis books as a break between more serious reads, but really, I should be paying more attention.

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.

Penguin Books Limited, 16 февр. Dick Francis was one of the most successful post-war National Hunt jockeys

Penguin Books Limited, 16 февр. Dick Francis was one of the most successful post-war National Hunt jockeys. The winner of over 350 races, he was champion jockey in 1953/1954 and rode for HM Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, most famously on Devon Loch in the 1956 Grand National. On his retirement from the saddle, he published his autobiography, The Sport of Queens, before going on to write forty-three bestselling novels, a volume of short stories (Field of 13), and the biography of Lester Piggott.

Everyone asks, so I may as well say at once that no, I’m not related to Charles er things, a new life, a new name.

Everyone asks, so I may as well say at once that no, I’m not related to Charles er things, a new life, a new name and a new identity. Twenty years rolled like mist over the memories of my distant childhood in Gloucestershire, and now I, Peter Darwin, was thirty-two, adopted son of a diplomat, in the diplomatic service myself

The book was commercially successful and led him to write racing articles for the London Sunday Express for the next sixteen years.

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.

A young British diplomat's return to England revives long-buried childhood memories that could be the key to saving innocent people from destruction
  • This may be considered by some as one of Dick Francis’ “lesser rated” novels. I disagree.
    I particularly enjoyed the protagonist. I love it when Mr. Francis places a protagonist with superior deductive skills in a mystery that he solves deftly. And you are a bit surprised.
    The main character is a diplomat just back from a posting in Japan who slides into a mystery at the racecourses on his way to a home posting in London. A medical - veterinary mystery.

  • A good story for the characters and the interaction of the past and the present. The resolution is implausible, but still a good read for D.F. fans.

  • Dick Francis is awesome. He catches you with his characters. You can't wait to see what's going to happen, and how they're going to handle it.
    The books that HE wrote. The newer ones are written by his son.

  • Standard good Dick Francis detective book. With the nice balance of anti hero, distressed victims and hint of romance. Good fun.

  • Book description : Why did he still have this effect on her?

    Six years had passed since the end of Laurel's affair with novelist Craig Gleniston. And since then she'd found peace and security, if not love, as the wife of another man.

    Now Craig had come back into her life, and Laurel faced an agonizing decision.

    Could she really wreck her marriage over an old obsession--or was she strong enough to let Craig go again?

    The story was ok but predictable somehow . I did not like the heroine through out much of the book but she redeemed herself at the end :) .

  • My 11 year old son and I love baseball and Jesus. Dave's story was inspirational and well written. My son and I could not put it down.

  • Finally broke down and loaded my favorite author Dick Francis into my Kindle. Couldn't be without him very long. I have every published book on my shelves, most in hard cover, most in paperback, but I've taken to loving reading the Kindle at night and am very glad to have Mr Francis on it.

  • Great plot.
    Kept me guessing.
    Peter Darwin is my second favorite character, Sid being my first.
    Watch out for......I won't give it away!
