As with Dead Heat the other Francis fatherson outing all the elements are there for a ood story but once again it doesn t deliver at the level readers of Francis have come to expect The pacing is just a bit off son Felix still dump truck loads in the middle of narrative that slow it down to almost stopping the story and loads in the middle of the narrative that slow down to almost stopping the story and characters who could have been used to better advantage are Chicago Neighborhoods and Suburbs: A Historical Guide given short shrift making the reader wonder why all the detail had beeniven about that character And then there is an uncharacteristic nod to Dead Heat something Dad never did unless it was vital to the story or character development If this continues this really doesn t bode well for the future of the Francis name If the next fatherson collaboration is a stinker too it s time to hang up the word processor rather than let such a fine author Citrus: A History go down in disgrace His first foray back after a six year haitus after his wife s death Under Orders wasn t his absolute best but it was a solid entry into the Francis ouvreThis also raises the uestion about editors doing their job It used to be that an editor would tell an author even a big name writer like Francis when something needed to be changed for the betterment of the story and the writer would do it These days editors seem merely to correct forrammar spelling and punctuation and that s it In my opinion there is NO author who is above being told by and editor to change something that doesn t work Hell Tom Clancy s novels with only one or two exceptions could be cut by at least a third fi not half and you would have a better story This is a typical well written Dick Francis book co written with his son Felix and has a storyline that lies thick in a courtroom with an amateur jump jockey trained barrister trying to defend a fellow jockey for a murder he didn t commit I really enjoyed this book and only dropped a star for maybe being a little over the top in legal jargon and procedure Fans of John Grisham would love this Would recommend What is there to say about Dick Francis As I think about all of his books yes this review covers all of his books and yes I ve read them all I think about a moral ethical hero steeped in intelligence and Building the South Side: Urban Space and Civic Culture in Chicago, 1890-1919 goodness embroiled in evil m As usual with Dick Francis the plot is interesting. “Julian Trent you have been founduilty by this court of perpetrating a violent and unprovoked attack on an innocent family including a charge of attempted murder You have shown little or no remorse for your actions and I consider you a danger to society”When defense lawyer Geoffrey Mason hears the judge’s ruling at London’s Old Bailey he uietly hopes that a substantial sentence will be handed down to his arrogant young client That.
