    I have read a lot of Dick Francis novels, although before I started putting reviews on here Most were entertaining, well crafted and at least moderately believable In general they follow the same pattern, boy meets girl, gets beaten up, falls of a horse, has broken ribs and is nursed back to health by his latest paramour whilst uncovering some dastardly plot All well and fine, the Holiday Inn or Mc Donald s of reading, easy going, light and comfortable.This one I picked up from a box of junk I have read a lot of Dick Francis novels, although before I started putting reviews on here Most were entertaining, well crafted and at least moderately believable In general they follow the same pattern, boy meets girl, gets beaten up, falls of a horse, has broken ribs and is...

    I have been a huge fan of Dick Francis for a long time and have read most of his work always enjoying the consistent quality of his work Second Wind unfortunately, breaks the trend The main characters are well fleshed out as always the mild Englishman central character the love interest the eccentrics etc are all there The central plot with its horse racing link is tenuous at best Surprisingly for a Dick Francis novel most of the villains are revealed early on leaving only one myste I have been a huge fan of Dick Francis for a long time...

    Usual stylish, fast moving Dick Frances mysteryThis time, Dick Francis s hero is a meteorologist caught up in situations beyond his control Francis is a master of the Everyman hero and this is no exception Not one of his very best, but good enough indeed.

    It is unimaginable to me that a writer can pen this many books and come up with fresh and intriguing plots that are seemingly never ending This is another fantastic Dick Francis work, and I ll keep reading them until I m finished with the last one.
