DAME AGATHA AND HER PEERSBOOK 62 Is there ANYTHING Dick Francis hasn t done andor any subject from whice he can t spin a good story Granted we are still in the world of horse racingbut actually above it in the airCAST 4 Matt Shore pilot of a taxi flying service I had no idea there is such a thing rises to heroism in this outing Francis heroes are just on this side of The Asset Wounded Warrior #1 unbelievable but that s fine everyone likes them Matt provides Shadow of Doubt Newpointe 911 Series #2 us with pure entertainment on a comfort read level Matt can t keep a job stays in all kinds of trouble and might be fired from his pilot position throughout the book Matt s love interest is the lovely and smart Nancy who is learning to fly as the story progresses Nancy has a sister Midge who is ill In this author s Forfeit the hero himself James has a wife who is an invalid Nancy and Midge live with their brother Colin Ross the superstar of the jockey set a counterpart to Matt a man heading toward superstardom himself if he can stay alive long enough Chanter is a rather nasty piece of goods chasing Nancy grabbing at her etc at the most public of moments This would NOT happen in today s novels Then there are a couple of villians and they are Amazing Discoveries That Unlock the Bible up to something But what is it Very good cast Almost forgot to mention A Duke who isn t very smart and sees everyone as nice has a great family relationship with a nephew and they both love playing with train sets But the nephew 12 years old is far sensitive to the bad guys than the Duke I ve a feeling the way the relationship is written couldn t be presented as such today about 50 years after the publication of this book an The Ruminator uncle and nephew spending a summer together alone Nope Infamous unpublishable today Sad ATMOSPHERE 5 To me this is a setan atmosphere I m totally Comfort of a Man unfamiliar with and thus found fascinating I learned much about planes and flying and oh I had no idea of the number of things that can go wrong during a flight I learned how the richest of the racing world travel from race to race to villainous meetings Francis knows his subject he owned and ran with his wife a taxi plane service for 7 years then sold the business way back when but that business is still in operation today from the introduction The entire story feels just right you just know Francis has nailed it There are 2 brilliantly written thrillset pieces that could ONLY take place in the world of airplanes both leading to a final climax involving planes and pilots at a horce race PERFECTLY executed world providing too me an A Cowboy Christmas unexpected educationPLOT 3 I can t say much here other than the bad guys are gonna make lots of money and are willing to kill for it The mystery is what and when and how are the villians gonna get rich Comfort of a Man uick And this is at heart a typical get rich Husband From 9 To 5 uick con game that we ve encountered oftenINVESTIGATION 4 Matt is on his own to pull himself The Bonny Bride up and out of the mess he is in He does have help from the Duke and Nancy and even one of the suspected villains There are some good red herrings like Larry Matt s predecessor has apparently resigned and taking off to Turkey Did he really And how far will Chanter go in his chase for Nancy when he realizes Nancy actually prefers Matt There are just enough red herrings to throw a reader off track from the truth and a singular absolutely thrilling rescue in midair that s as good as any thriller scene I ve read And just when I thought I d read it allRESOLUTION 4 Francis takes The Beleaguered Lord Bourne us down to a few seconds thenoh just read the book This isn t just an explanation of what s going on but it s one accompanied by a final thrilling sceneSUMMARY 4 Stars for 4 reasons 1 A beautifully portrayed atmosphere new to me and 2 thrill scenes that are among the best I ve read in a long time and 3 Matt is the hero we all look for in books and 4 the following exchangeCOLIN ROSS famous jockey talking to Matt if you don t feel like going on would you care to let me take you home for the night Then you can finish the trip tomorrow It might be a fine day tomorrowMATT It might but I could stay in CambridgeCOLIN Call your wife tooMATT Haven t got oneCOLIN Oh He Colin looked at me Matt with speculative curiosityMATT No not that Married 12 years divorced threeCOLIN Better than me Married 2 years divorced 4At this point in the story we ve got a bromance brewing at minimum Colin is very famous very handsome but very private his focus is on family his sisters Nancy and Midge who live with himAnd that s the way Francis handles that nice firmly and people move on It doesn t bother Matt that Colin sorta wants to know Matt simply says No and has no hard feelings And that s what regular people do clarify and move on issue resolved It d be great if everyone had that attitude in today s worldIt s true Francis has a certain formula but it seems to me that formula is perfected here in the author s 9th horse racingcrime novel This was a one sit read for me and now I have two go to comfort reads Christie AND Francis
