Dick Francis is back with our old friend Sid Halley, and provides us with another great page-turner. The writing in this one is a little choppy, with a little bit of issues with the overall flow, but with the solid plot and characters, it's easily brushed off. Another great Dick Francis novel.

I really like the Sid Halley series that Mr. Francis wrote, and this one is no exception. This book is about a trainer who is accused of killing a jockey, and then is found dead himself, possibly from suicide. Halley doesn't believe that this is the case and decides to investigate himself. I really like all of Mr. Francis's books because each one is so different. I can usually not guess what is going to happen in the end, which is something that I like. I don't like it when the mysteries are too predictable. I recommend this book to all horse mystery lovers. They will not be disappointed.

Another good story from Francis. This one has less gruesome violence than many of his. A nice listen on the road.

I'm on the I liked it side of the fence for this book, but just barely. I liked visiting with Sid Halley again but his character seemed a bit sketchy, as though Francis relied more on the reader knowing Halley from previous books. I didn't care for the change in his father-in-law's character. And there were moments when I felt the scenes had been recycled from previous Francis books, which isn't necessarily bad, but still. The writing - especially the dialog - does not feel the same as the old Francis either. Nonetheless it's one of his last, and I'll keep it with my other Francis books for old time's sake.

Slow starter. Not as much action as a typical Dick Francis. But its good to read a new DF book!

Classic Dick Francis! I thoroughly enjoyed this Sid Halley book -- I've missed Mr. Francis and I've missed Sid!

I have very little interest in horse racing but I love all of Dick Francis' books. This story kept me interested from page one to the last page and I hated for it to end. It is a good combination of integrity, mystery and romance and I really like the main character, Sid Halley.
