Reflex Author:Dick Francis "As rousing and straightforward as a stretch drive to the wire." — NEWSWEEK — Dick Francis is no ordinary mystery writer, and jockey Philip Nore is no ordinary hero. When Nore begins to suspect that a track photographer's fatal accident was really murder, he sets out to discover the truth and to trap the killer. Slowly, he unravels some nasty secr... more »ets of corruption, blackmail and murder--and unwittingly sets himself up as the killer's next target.
Dick Francis, as you probably know, was Queen Elizabeth's personal Jockey for most of his career. He knows every aspect of the racing world, inside and out. His mysteries are so well written and there is so much knowledge imparted as you enjoy the mystery. Every book manages to be different, but each one ties into the racing world but from a diffferent perspective, i.e. track owner; bookie; horse buyer; horse breeder; etc. I have had the good fortune to receive a box of his books and read each and every one! I gave them to a friend's daughter that is raising, showing and breeding Paint horses.
