    Dick & Son

    I agree that Felix is not the writer his father is, but he is stll better than many other mystery writers today. It is just that Dick was one of a kind. He had a very distinct and clear style.

    The only critisim I have ever heard oh him was that his heroes were all interchangable. But that was not a weakness in my eyes, it was a strength.

    Highly Recommended

    I love everything by Dick Francis. NOT the stuff with his son Felix, you can tell that Dick wasn't in control by then. I miss him very much. wish he were still with us and writing.

    I Also Recommend:

    Come to Grief was the Edgar Award Winner for Best Novel in 1996

    I don't know why the reviewer on June 05, 2005 thought this novel was "too close to home." It makes me wonder if the reviewer had personal experience (as a victim) with the type of crime in Come to Grief. Even though I am a fan of Dick Francis, this was a tough read for me because of the violence and evil perpetrated by the criminal on animals. I gave the plot 4 stars because it is not for the squeamish. That being said, it was an excellent book full of the taut suspense, solid characterizations, and pacing that make all Dick Francis books great. It is important to know that the Mystery Writers of America gave this book the Edgar Award for Best Novel of 1996. Do not let one poor review turn you away from Dick Francis books. If you're not sure if you can handle the plot, try reading the synopsis on the dust jacket (or back) of the books. For those who haven't read Dick Francis' novels yet, I recommend starting with Dead Cert. It's a brilliant book as are all the others he wrote. Mr. Francis passed away in February 2010. The last novel he wrote (in collaboration with his son, Felix Francis)is titled Crossfire and will be available August 17, 2010.

    Dick Francis.co.uk

    I always used to love the Dick Francis books until this one. This one is too close to home for my liking, which is a great shame, as before this book I had seen Dick Francis through rose coloured glassed, and I hated having those glasses removed from me.
