Unlike other well known authors, they don't have a set formula they use and just change the names.

Большинство произведений писателя посвящено скачкам, скорее, их теневой стороне. Жокеи, бывшие жокеи и владельцы лошадей борются за чистоту и красоту этого прекрасного вида спорта, защищают его от тех, кто хочет на нем наживаться и ради наживы готов на ужасные преступления.

Henry Grey is the heir to an earldom, and he hates it. He doesn't believe anyone likes him for himself, and so he rarely makes a friend. Tidy, methodical, controlled and secretive, he's a man of the fewest possible words.

He's also a man of many talents - a quite good amateur steeplechase jockey - and an even better amateur pilot. His acquaintances in the racing world have no idea he can fly, and his acquaintances at the flying club have no clue he races.

His family desperately wants him to marry a rich girl to shore up the family fortunes. And one day he rebels. Quitting his respectable desk job, he becomes the head groom for a company that transports horses - at considerable loss of pay and prestige. This is the final humiliation for his family.

Henry likes his new job, which still leaves him free days for racing and flying. Unfortunately, he's landed at a company that's not what it seems. Even more unfortunately, he's entirely too observant and begins to notice suspicious goings on.

How Henry gets in and out of trouble is the substance of the plot, which also allows for a hot romance with a charming young woman in Milan. First published in l966, the book is a bit dated politically, but I enjoyed this window into the past.

As things heat up for Henry, it's a pleasure watching him gain confidence and take a few chances on friendship and love. He is now one of my favorite Dick Francis heroes.

I found myself getting angry when the book was about to end. I wanted more! I envy the reader who is at page one. You have a great story to look forward to.

Dick Francis has a talent for writing the same story over and over again, but his real skill lies in making you want to read it over and over again! His backstories are well-researched so that you learn quite a lot, his storylines are always compelling, his heroes are always predictably heroic, and he creates a sense of place so strong that sometimes you look up from the book and are quite surprised to find out where you actually are.

As with most of his works Francis exceeded expectations.

I've read almost all of Dick Francis' books, and I enjoyed this one, but I do feel it was slower than most of them, and just didn't hold my interest as much as the others do.

Chillhunter
this is one of my favorite authors. horses and mystery--how can u go wrong? try it--bet you'll love it--like me!!!

As usual, the pace of the story holds the reader enthralled throughout. His characters come to life and there is always a surprise with the denoument.
