    I started reading Dick Francis when I was 14 years old and looking for a mystery in the library The cover of the first one I read looked intriguing, the title, Nerve seemed interesting, and the synopsis about a jockey who has lost his nerve made me add it to my pile of books After that I was hooked, reading his novels until I caught up on his entire back list

    About Dick Francis you can either say the books are all the same or you get exactly what you expect There will be a fairly young main character that excel at his occupation The occupation will always be different and never directly involved in horse racing, but some way still involved in the racing world The main character will be single but meet a lovely girl some

    I managed to get myself stuck in a hotel room without my three bags of vintage mysteries that I m working my way through, so I went in the hotel lounge and picked up the only mystery on the shelf.Bummer about that This is yet another of the New York Times Best Sellers that s cheap crapola cranked out to a formula so the author can live in the Caribbean You know what you re tel

    As much as I love Dick Francis, I hate American publishers who Americanize vocabulary, changing things like sideburns to whiskers and traffic warden to parking warden It s a book by an English author, set in England Don t jolt me out of the story by introducing words Brits never use singlet it ruins a perfectly good story.

    What is there to say about Dick Francis As I think about all of his books yes, this review covers all of his books, and yes I ve read them all I think about a moral ethical hero, steeped in intelligence and goodness embroiled in evil machinations within British horse racing society either directly or indirectly The heroes aren t always horse jockies, they can be film producers, or involve heroe

    I have been a Francis fan for many years now, having read most of his books While this one is not his best, it it still a far better effort than we see from other authors.This book contains the familiar comforts we have come to expect from Francis a likeable accidental hero, a loathsome villan or two, a nice girl and the chance to learn something Reading one of Francis novels is like sitting down wit

    This is a re read I ve only read it once before, and it stuck in my head because the protagonist, glass blower Gerard Logan, lives in the village of Broadway, in the Cotswolds in England, and I have been there, often I can visualize the very shop that I think Mr Francis imagined as Gerard s glass studio and shop, the hotel across the street, and the main road generally I always learn something from a Dick

    Although this was good, I think it was the beginning of a slide down in quality on Francis books Keep in mind, I ve loved his books for 30 years, so this is hard to say They re still good yarns, though, with characters you can like, but I found this less enthralling than usual.
