Dick Francis never fails to entertain and to hold one on the edge of their seat and he did it again with this story. He develops his characters so that you either love them or hate them but at the same time understand them. "Bonecrack" is a stunning thriller which also lets you get to know the players very well indeed. You don't have to be interested in horse racing to enjoy every single one of his books.

This was as, his other books an excellent CD to lisen to. My daughter highly recommends it; so it's my turn next, then we'll relist it. I haven't lisened to a Dick Francis yet that I've been disappointed in.
This has a stable owner being pressured by crime czar to use his son as a jockey in an important race with a valuable horse and win or else. Our hero takes control and runs things his way even with dark threats, violence and cold blooded murder.

I've never read a Dick Francis book I didn't like and this one was no exception. He always incorporates suspense and humor in every book which makes them very enjoyable to read.

This book is not a literary masterpiece, but does not intend to fill that category. A simple, entertaining little read. Suspend disbelief and enjoy the ride.

From the book cover: "Violence suddenly takes the lead in the life of Neil Griffon. Following a grisly accident that lands his father in the hospital, Griffon finds himself in charge of his father's stables. Before he has a chance to get his bearings, he is brutally assaulted and abducted. The price for his freedom will mean the betrayal and deception of those who trust Griffon most.

Griffon has no choice - a no-compromise crime czar gives him an ultimatum he dare not refuse. The czar insists that his own eighteen-year-old son be hired by Griffon's stable so he can ride the superstar horse, Archangel, in the Derby. And his son must be trained to win. Or else ..."

An excellent fast-paced read with believable characters.
