    My edition of this book uotes a review from The Atlantic Monthly indicating that the book is guaranteed to drive the reader to hysterical dithers and jotters I confess that I have absolutely no idea what even regular dithers and jotters might amount to let alone hysterical ones and while I enjoyed the book I was not especially moved to any unusual emotional reactionsNeil Griffon's profession is consulting with troubled companies and restoring them to good health But then his father who owns a large stable operation with eight five horses in his care is badly injured in an auto accident and Neil is temporarily forced to leave his own job and take over the stables Neil's relations with his father have never been good a freuent problem for Dick Francis's protagonists and the last thing he wants to do is assume this responsibility Sadly he has no choiceNo sooner does Griffon settle in than he is kidnapped by a couple of professional thugs and delivered to a rich and powerful criminal The criminal's son who has no experience in these matters wishes to become a champion jockey preferably starting tomorrow The crook instructs Griffon to take the son into his operation and set him up on the best horse in the place in the coming race season Should Griffon fail to do so the crook will destroy the stables and inflict great bodily harm on Griffon himselfObviously this seriously bad guy has never read a Dick Francis novel or he would have had sense enough to take his son and his threats to another stable Anyone who ever has read one of these books understands immediately that any Dick Francis protagonist will face such threats stoically bravely and intelligently Most of all he will never EVER give into such threats irrespective of the harm that will inevitably be inflicted upon him along the wayGriffon's challenge then is to diffuse the situation without ever speaking of it to anyone else the police included Bringing them into this matter simply wouldn't be fair to the poor bad guy who has no idea who he's dealing with or what he's getting himself into And even though I wasn't reduced to hysterical dithers and jotters at least as far as I know I did enjoy watching Neil Griffon wrestle with this challenge and I expect that most other readers who like this series will as well

    Not one of Francis' bestI really like Dick Francis but this is not one of his stronger efforts The protagonist does use his head but is helpless in dealing with physical attacks and never thinks of arming himself with even a stout stick In the end chance luck and the villain's health and increasing madness save the dayI am accustomed to accurate details in Francis' writing but in this one I found another disappointment Most of the firearms information is ludicrously wrong

    Confession In a universe without assigned reading in college courses I never would have picked up this book Euestrian murder mysteries just aren't my cup of tea I'm glad I don't live in that universe because I would have missed out Dick Francis is a master of suspense and can turn a phrase like nobody's business but the real meat of this particular story comes from the characters The narrator is a man forced into a desperate situation within the opening pages this book has one of the best opening lines I've ever read by the way thus automatically winning our sympathies The urge to root for him grows stronger once we see just how unbalanced the antagonist really is There are themes beyond the good guy vs bad guy plot; fathers and sons is a big one and the payoff from exploring that dynamic is satisfying if also a little heartbreaking To summarize good stuff Thank goodness for assigned reading

    710I didn't much care for this one in the beginning It felt a bit too predictable too much like a typical Dick Francis thriller here's the uiet but determined bystander here is the bully villain without conscience or remorse add some love interest and place everything in or around Newmarket I felt like i read it all before and I'm on autopilotI'm glad I've sticked with it because the story soes pick up in the second half and the main actors get enough depth to make me invested in their fate Also compared to other books by the author this one really goes to the races and is not putting the spotlight on flying or banking or other alternate pursuitsDick Francis may be predictable but he has the knack of wrenching those heartstrings time and time again I know I will get back to his books soon

    Dick Francis? The mob? Syphilis? Sign me up for that party Fantastic as usual The ending was maybe a bit too tidy but it was still fantastic fun All the characters are adorable and interesting even the bad ones okay they aren't so adorable

    Dame Agatha Christie and Her Peers1973 Dick Francis toward the end of this book offers a good warning one to live by If you meet a syphilitic megalomaniac duck Duck uickly because they can be dangerous There's a theory that Hitler was one You see some people get syphilis and gonorrhoea at the same time They are cured of the later but the syphilis goes undetected infected children might occur but are usually stillborn but if they live there is usually some problem There is literally no one likely to move mountains than your megalomaniac syphilitic But the next step is GPI General paralysis of the insane In other words descent to cabbage Thankfully there has never ever in this history of America been a case of 'descent to cabbage' This information is circa 1973 and maybe be oldincorrectI usually enjoy this author And I will read by FrancisCAST 1 star In the Introduction although not identified as been authored by Francis readers are told unsatisfactory father son relationships interest me to such an extent that book reviewers have speculatedopining that I must have suffered badly at home Francis denies this then creates an unbelievable Allesandro father son team the son has no experience in horse racing but dreams of doing ? so while his farther is determined to make his son a famous jockey by hurting stable horses till the stable allows the son to ride with little experience The other son Neil Griffon is inexperienced at running a stable his father is in the hospital is kidnapped and hurt badly and 2 horses die and only then is the bad kid Allesandro allowed on a horse If I'm ever kidnapped and beaten and I own a business suffering because someone else wants to work for me I'm heading straight to the cops No matter how little experience I might have in said business It's only logical And the horses they've done nothing but be horses and they die? Because someone WANTS to ride them? Whhhhhaaaat? And what is so odd here is that if one stands OUTSIDE the story and looks in one wants to pick up the phone and call the racing commission at a minimum possibly Scotland Yard No this is just so odd from this author senseless characters doing really stupid things Yes true on occasion Francis gives us a hero just short of having super powers who can survive anything But they aren't stupid and they never allow horses to be killed and they never allow the enemy such ridiculous fulfillment attempts of ambitions This plot hole is so massive it takes over the entire bookATMOSPHERE 3 stars I did like the way a new jockey has to learn to ride and I enjoyed all the aspects that go into that There is so much a jockey must learn so much personal sacrifice in weight and time jockeys make an entire life of riding and it's tough out there I like the choosing of certain horses for certain races and the discussion of the whys and whens And the big thing I learned is that no way no how could this Rivera son be a jockey Ever I am not naive and I do know there is much evil CRIME s 1 star Didn't believe it didn't believe the story Nono no I'm sorta concerned though about someone I know who messes around with possibly unsafe hookers here in America The oversight of the health of sex workers in America is nothing compared to the oversight of these workers in Europe And that's why I'm 100% for making this occupation legal cause we know people find what they want So let's make it safeINVESTIGATION 1 star No one seems to care much about the horses it's justunbelievableRESOLUTION 1 star Neil decides this eveil son is just fine leaves him employed at the stable why they seem to become besties Nope no no SUMMARY 14 Easily my least favorite Francis novel There is no great hero Hey I like a believable story that has a good and deserving hero This plot here doesn't makes sense Sorry even having a 'syphilitic megalomaniac in your story doesn't make it wor In fact this might be one of the biggest plot holes I've ever run across in a mystery Even bigger than the fact that if Ms Marple andor Poirot go on a vacation someone must die Or that if Tommy and Tupence get involved in some international conspiracy they are going to solve it brilliantly and be awarded a Nobel Prize for Peace Even ridiculous is the ideajust a rumorfake newsthat Rush Limbaugh is to be given a Medal of Honor from trump That happened? Next thing you know Ann Coulter will break up from her love trump WHAT? That happened also? The universe is truly chaotic I need some really good fiction right nowMaybe one but I'm not one to name namesSame person and again I'm not one to name names Actually I sorta am after a martini

    Another great one by Dick Francis This time our Everyman Hero Neil Griffon is abducted and bullied into putting an amateur jockey up on the favorite mount for the big race Just covering for his father after a serious car accident he has no experience running a stable and is uickly in over his head Classic Francis at his best we have the intricacies of a strained father son relationship empowered strong women well ahead of their time and a great Everyman main character in Neil Yes we have horses and racing and insights into the everyday operations of a racing stable But we also have a smart mystery that will leave you guessing until the end I just love his books 35 stars
