    Kindle Dick Francis #10003; Silks PDF #188; #10003; silks ebok, Silks KindleAs with Dead Heat the other Francis fatherson outing all the elements are there for a good 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 the narrative that slow it down to almost stopping the story and some characters who could have been used to better advantage are given short shrift making the reader wonder why all the detail had been given abo

    Kindle Dick Francis #10003; Silks PDF #188; #10003; silks ebok, Silks KindleI always enjoy reding Dick Francis's tales of racing and this was no exception His central character George 'Perry' Mason is a barrister who is also an amateur steeplechase rider He is reluctantly dragged into defending a fellow jockey who is accused of murdering another jock by spearing him with a pitchfork His belief in the innocence of the accused is strengthened when he is subjected to intimidation by a former client 'bad boy' who wants him to lose the case Lots of skullduggery in the racing game told in the author's usual entertaining way

    Kindle Dick Francis #10003; Silks PDF #188; #10003; silks ebok, Silks KindleThis 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

    Kindle Dick Francis #10003; Silks PDF #188; #10003; silks ebok, Silks KindleWhat 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 goodness embroiled in evil machinations within British horse racing society either directly or indirectly The heroes aren't always horse jockies they can be film producers or involve heroes engaged in peripheral professions that somehow always touch the horse racing worldBut than that Francis's heroes are rational human beings The choices made are rational choices directed by a firm objective philosophy that belies all of Francis's novels The dialogue is clear and touched with humor no matter the intensity of evil that the hero faces The hero's thoughts reveal a vulnerability that is touching while his actions are always based on doing the right thing to achieve justice

    Kindle Dick Francis #10003; Silks PDF #188; #10003; silks ebok, Silks KindleWhen the lawyer character has the nickname Perry Mason you go into the story with certain expectationsA few years before this story starts lawyer Geoffrey Mason failed to successfully defend his client Now that client has been released and is coming after him in a tale that combines horse racing murder and manipulation Like a Perry Mason episode most of the significant drama takes place in the courtroomThis is the first Dick Francis book I've read and going on the blurb it's not one I would have felt inspired to pick up Given that I recently read Triple Crown Leadership Building Excellent Ethical and Enduring Organizations horse racing is something I'm learning and about Memo to self take myself off to the races I felt a little disappointed then that the novel didn't give a lot of inside into the horse racing worldThat said I really enjoyed this book and it's the kind that would

    Kindle Dick Francis #10003; Silks PDF #188; #10003; silks ebok, Silks KindleAs usual with Dick Francis the plot is interesting and lots of knowledge is imparted This time however great quantities of exposition are ladled out in steaming lumps This becomes tedious rather quickly Our barrister hero a widower becomes involved in a case that reaches its tentacles deep into the horse racing world So far so goodWhat made Francis so good was the humanity of his heroes the depths they had to reach for courage and the witty dialogue These attributes must have been the contribution of his wife Mary because the

    Kindle Dick Francis #10003; Silks PDF #188; #10003; silks ebok, Silks KindleAlmost but not quite up to vintage Dick Francis English barrister despite the explanation I still don't understand the difference between a barrister and a solicitor or just how the English lawyer system works and amateur jockey Geoffrey Mason nicknamed Perry by his jockey friends naturally meets some unscrupulous clients and acquaintances But in typical Francis characterization he stands firm and mostly unafraid and comes out the winner Doesn't have the depth of some of the Francis characters but he's reasonably likeable It kept me sufficiently interested that I read when I should be doing other things But then what doesn't??
