Typical Francis

This is a gripping story and the lead-in plot-line to "Bolt". I could hardly put either book down, but did not discover their related story lines until after I read Bolt. Read Break In first if you can.

From Publishers Weekly: "Francis's 25th thriller is suavely handled and full of suspense. The narrator, Kit Fielding, wins handily as a steeple-chase jockey and enjoys the friendship of the princess who owns the horses he races. But trouble threatening his twin Holly and her husband Bobby Allardeck interrupts Kit's routine. As horse trainers, the Allardecks are about to go bankrupt after a scandal sheet prints the false report that they can't pay their debts. Determined to discover the motive for the attack, Kit enlists the help of people in the princess's circle, which includes her niece, Danielle. A romance develops between the jockey and Danielle, interrupted by villains sent to kill him. Thanks to Kit, the Allardecks' business is saved and he outwits the perpetrators of a shameful conspiracy. The love story, as well as the author's colorful descriptions of English jump racing and newspaper tycoons, add zest to the intricate novel. Literary Guild and Reader's Digest Condensed Books selections." Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc.

The first Dick Francis I ever read, and one of my favorites. Well-paced, taut thriller.

Dick Francis writes about mysteries about horse racing. In this book, his main character is Kit Fielding, twin of Holly Fielding who owns a horse training stable. Francis writes wonderful stories. You won't be disappointed.

Dick Francis is a new writer for me and I just loved the intrigue found in his work. Makes me want to work with horses.

This is the first of two books featuring Kit Fielding (the second being "Bolt"). Terrific story, brilliantly written. I love that Kit is a champion steeplechase jockey, so throughout the books Dick Francis tells of Kit's rides, written with such perfection that you feel you're on the horse yourself. You can practically smell the leather. A great story, one of my favorites!
