    It s been awhile since I ve read a Dick Francis novel and Under Orders included everything that I ve always loved about his writing Sid Halley is a great hero though not in the usual sense of the term Solid, smart and with a fair amount of guts , he works methodically through his cases The fact that he s a former jockey former because of a life changing injury brings an insi

    I learned a few weeks ago that Dick Francis had written a fourth Sid Halley novel in 2006 I rushed to the library and found a nice large print version I am sorry to say that it was not up to the standard set by the earlier three, perhaps because Francis appears to have been writing it either during or just after his wife s last illness The plot and climax were a bit far fetched the n

    The least of the Halley s I ve read, which makes it merely excellent Francis may not be at his best here, but he s still damn good.Sid Halley was the only Francis protagonist to make it past two books, and really the only one who should have His other leads are very good, but Halley was the only one among the walking wounded, who really had progress to make The other heroes must overcome situ

    I didn t really enjoy this book very much I am an avid Dick Francis fan and have been for decades, and I regularly re read his books I adored all the earlier Sid Halley books, and thought that the finish in Come to Grief was the perfect ending for him This book feels to me as though it were written by someone who had been told about the earlier books but had never read them Charles Rowland spelled Roland in earlier books has ha

    Dick Francis novels are always enjoyable but not so memorable The victims are bad, the protagonists are clever and the horses are fast Except for the horses who are slow Sid Halley appears in several Dick Francis stories He is a former jockey who lost a hand in a racing accident Having to retire he became a private investigator specializing in horse racing issues In Under Orders Sid investigates the murder of a jockey and finds all kind
