    This novel is a bit unique in that the main character, Edward Lincoln, doesn t fit the usual mold of a Dick Francis protagonist Almost always these men live alone and within themselves They are taciturn, but steely and determined When challenged, they always rise to the occasion They almost always have a close association with the world of horse racing, and often, they have been in relationships wit

    My first Dick Francis novel I had avoided him for many years because he is always described as that guy who writes about horse racing That s misleading In this case at least the racing provides the initial plot point and some color, but isn t the focus A wealthy old woman, recently diagnosed with a fatal illness, wants to find out why her horses are suddenly performing so poorly she wants to resolve t

    One of my favorite books by Dick Francis.I have always preferred his earlier work.An invitation to visit South Africa during the apartheid era provided Francis with the material for this book.He takes the reader inside a gold mine and describes its workings in fascinating detail.Francis also visited the Kruger National Park which becomes the scene for a memorable climax.

    As always, Francis captured my attention from the very first page This book is a little different for two reasons First, our hero Link is a famous actor, although he has a background in horse racing since he father was a head lad for many years And secondly, Link is asked by a friend to investigate why the horses she inherited from her sister and now racing in South Africa are all doing poorly But what s the sa

    A Dick Francis book set in South Africa, written in 1972 Like many of his books, sets off at a sprint and does not draw breath until the end Great stuff.

    This is a terrific entry in the Dick Francis series Unlike many of Francis heroes, Edward Lincoln has few internal conflicts He is successful, world famous, and happily married, with only a handicapped but beloved child to cloud his horizons Nonetheless, the trial he lives through at the book s climax will make you happy you re not him Parts of the book seem to dawdle too much over irrelevant color descriptions of

    Dick Francis delivers again This time, the setting is exotic South Africa, and the lead is a likable, down to earth action film star The usual Francis tropes make their appearancesmost notably the protracted battle between man and nature And of course, there is the male lead with an unusual ability to interpret data to reach reliable conclusions though I suppose every good mystery needs someone with such an ability A
