Ex-jockey Dick Francis writes thrilling tales of corruption and intrigue in the world of horse racing.
While some of his books are fairly short, like For Kicks, others like Come to Grief are longer, of a size now considered average for a novel. But short or long, they keep one reading. And even those of us who know nothing of horses come away with an understanding of both the animals and the British racing circuit.
Intrigue, mystery, danger…Francis books are a thrill ride.
