    My edition of this book quotes a review from The Atlantic Monthly, indicating that the book is guaranteed to drive the reader to hysterical dithers and jotters I confess that I have absolutely no idea what even regular dithers and jotters might amount to, let alone hysterical ones, and while I enjoyed the book, I was not especially moved to any unusual emotional reactions.Neil Grif

    Not one of Francis bestI really like Dick Francis but this is not one of his stronger efforts The protagonist does use his head but is helpless in dealing with physical attacks and never thinks of arming himself with even a stout stick In the end chance, luck and the villain s health and increasing madness save the day.I am accustomed to accurate details in Francis writing but in this one I

    I am rarely disappointed with a Dick Francis mystery him and his wife were masters of the balance between affable protagonists and intensely cruel villains Bonecrack carries you along effortlessly through the British countryside, and dumps you in the middle of life and death action and onion layer mystery immediately Incredible book

    Dame Agatha Christie and Her Peers1973 Dick Francis, toward the end of this book, offers a good warning, one to live by If you meet a syphilitic megalomaniac, duck Duck quickly, because they can be dangerous There s a theory that Hitler was one You see, some people get syphilis and gonorrhoea at the same time They are cured of the later, but the syphilis goes undetected, infected children might occur but are usually stillborn but if they live

    Another great one by Dick Francis This time, our Everyman Hero Neil Griffon is abducted and bullied into putting an amateur jockey up on the favorite mount for the big race Just covering for his father after a serious car accident, he has no experience running a stable and is quickly in over his head Classic Francis at his best, we have the intricacies of a strained father son relationship, empowered, strong women well ahead of their time, and a great
