By Dick Francis
Before Dick Francis was a best-selling author, he was a jockey. All of his books have some aspect of this world. He truly writes what he knows.
I found Francis when I was a student at BYU. Sometimes I had enough of school. I would walk down to the town library in Provo and read. That was the place that I first read his books. It gave me a hunger to travel.
This book is just as good. It is one of his later books about a jockey turned investigator. With his understanding of the racing world, he is able to find plots and murderers.
I really enjoy Francis' books. I give this one 4 stars.
