blankI was quite saddened to read that author Dick Francis has passed away aged 89. He was famous for his horse racing-based crime novels. We have read a lot of his books and even have a signed copy of “Shattered”.

Recently I have been listening to “Wild horses” and “Decider” in audio. He was a good writer and a brilliant story teller. His style and knowledge of the horse racing world was second to none!

Fortunately he wrote almost 40 novels so we’ll be reading / listening for many years to come.

Rest in peace Dick Francis!
