Dick Francis is the author of many bestselling mysteries. I've collected (almost) all of them. They are Great! Francis doesn't have one detective, he has many (although 1 guy has appeared in 3 books). Many different backgrounds, many different kinds of problems, but they all have English horse racing in the background somewhere. His official website is with his publisher, Penguin Putnam Inc. Many of his fans contribute to the AOL reading group.
What he's written so far is:
|The Sport of Queens (autobiography)
In the Frame
A Jockey's Life
To the Hilt
Come to Grief
Field of Thirteen (short stories)
