Dick Francis

Man, Dick Francis woulda loved this line from the Washington Post’s T. Rees Shapiro:  “In a career spanning four decades and 42 novels, Mr. Francis sold more than 60 million books. His protagonists, often former jockeys themselves, caromed through page-turning murder plots and ruthless kidnapping schemes. They endured impossibly excruciating torture but solved the mystery, nabbed the bad guy and usually got the girl.

Thank you, T. Rees.
