    Paperbackã Nerve Kindle æ nerve ebok, Nerve eBookThis the second novel by Dick Francis was first published in 1964 and like most of his books this one is set in the world of British horse racing The protagonist Rob Finn shares all the usual characteristics and the same sort of frustrated love life as the typical Francis protagonist He's uiet and self effacing which often leads people to underestimate him But underneath he's clever and resourceful and he has a steely resolve that does not bode well for anyone who would do an injustice to Finn or to someone he cares aboutAs the book opens Finn is a struggling young steeplechase jockey trying to work his way up the ladder to better mounts and success It's a tough climb made even harder by the fact that someone is spreading stories about some jockeys tha

    Paperbackã Nerve Kindle æ nerve ebok, Nerve eBookThere's really something to be said for good old storytelling I love this guy's characters They're not uirky or tortured or mediocre in greater measure than anyone else and yet they're really compelling Although his books are peppered with sentences like I shivered from something other than the cold I'm simply not bothered by it because his characters are so great and the plot is so fun Maybe my having started reading him before I had any training in writing allows me to get along so nicely; anyhow I'm extremely pleased to have holed up with this book for two days neither wanting to stop nor feeling compelled to force myself to stop The last time I read a book in two days was probably the last time I read Dick Francis

    Paperbackã Nerve Kindle æ nerve ebok, Nerve eBookA big thank you to openlibraryorg for making this available as an eBook Sadly due to the nature of copyright law this and many of Mr Francis' earlier books are unavailable for the Kindle at this timeOnce again Dick Francis brings to vivid life the risky business of an amateur steeplechase jockey The incidents involving the Tank Carrier and the Jaguar blocking the lane reminds me of the comment made in Goldfinger The first time is happenstance The second is coincidence and the third is enemy action This was Mr Francis' second thriller and his third published book His first book being his autobiography as the ueen Mother's jockey His first thriller and second book was Dead Cert

    Paperbackã Nerve Kindle æ nerve ebok, Nerve eBookThis is the second Dick Francis book that I’ve read and I really enjoy them They aren’t overly complicated mysteries but they are fast paced and something is always happening Not to mention his books all have something to do with the horse worldmainly the steeplechase worldWith this being Francis’s second book I am trying to read them in publication order I can definitely tell his writing has improved but his style remains in tact Like his first book his main characters seems to be a little on the gritty side boarding on full on uestionable but yet the reader continues to form an attachment to them His characters are always fully developed and they realize their limitations and their strengths which I like I also like a story where the good guys win and the bad guys get their comeuppances there is a clear resolution and the story doesn’t feel unfinishedI also like that Francis always tries to please female readers with

    Paperbackã Nerve Kindle æ nerve ebok, Nerve eBookFour and a half stars for a galloping good read What I like about Francis' earlier books is that than just detective yarns they are stories Each character is three dimensional a person with likes and dislikes with a past and thoughts and ideas The attention to detail is enormous unlike some golden age mysteries with plotholes you could drive a horse trailer throughIt's interesting that so many of Francis' bad guys are unbalanced as if the tendency to do evil implied a form of madness an idea the main character considers throughout the book I also like the fact that the mysteries aren't just about physical killing; there are many ways to kill a person while still leaving them breathing as well as the possiblity of driving a person to lose their job marriage or life without getting one's own hands dirty or even being seen as involved The reason I didn't give this a flat 5

    Paperbackã Nerve Kindle æ nerve ebok, Nerve eBookIf there is one trait above all else that a jockey needs in steeplechase racing it’s nerve Junior jockey Rob Finn has plenty of it The rest of his family have made it big in the world of classical music but Rob never fit into that world instead being drawn to the active and risky world of horse racing But just when he had caught his big break and was finally getting rides wins and the recognition that goes with it everything comes tumbling down After a nasty fall during a race a string of last place finishes just about does him in They’re saying he’s lost his nerve But to Finn’s mind there is something far devious at play and he is determined to discover its source and get his revengeThis is the second published work of fiction 1964 by the esteemed Dick Francis The author was himself a champion steeplechase jockey so the horse racing scenes the preparation

    Paperbackã Nerve Kindle æ nerve ebok, Nerve eBookGrabbing old favorites off the shelf again Dick Francis was a British steeplechase jockey who took to writing thrillers and had a nice little second career writing international best sellers from the sixties up through the nineties Most of his books involve horse racing and they're dependably entertaining with plucky underdog heroes convincingly bad villains and just enough succinctly depicted violence to make us wince and root for the bad guy's comeuppanceIn this one a struggling jockey watches his fellow riders fall prey one by one to mysterious mishaps; he susses out the malevolent string puller behind them and having survived his own encounter with the scoundrel devises a wickedly appropriate extra judicial punishmentIt's not the best thing Francis wrote; there aren't a whole lot of surprises and there is a slightly weird subplot involving the protagonist's unreuited love for a comely first cousin but it has all the Francis virtures clear and com
