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.
