Dick Francis (pictured with his son Felix Francis) was born in South Wales in 1920. He was a young rider of distinction winning awards and trophies at horse shows throughout the United Kingdom. At the outbreak of World War II he joined the Royal Air Force as a pilot, flying fighter and bomber aircraft including the Spitfire and Lancaster.
He became one of the most successful postwar steeplechase jockeys, winning more than 350 races and riding for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. After his retirement from the saddle in 1957, he published an autobiography, The Sport of Queens, before going on to write more than forty acclaimed books, including the New York Times bestsellers Even Money and Silks.
A three-time Edgar Award winner, he also received the prestigious Crime Writers’ Association’s Cartier Diamond Dagger, was named Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, and was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 2000. He died in February 2010, at age eighty-nine, and remains among the greatest thriller writers of all time.
There may be no better combination on audio than Dick Francis and Martin Jarvis. Francis, now writing with his son Felix, turns out thrillers set in British racing circles. Geoffrey Mason is a lawyer by trade and an amateur jockey by passion. Hired to defend a champion jockey arrested for murdering another jockey with a pitchfork, Mason finds himself evading vengeful former clients, soaring over steeplechase jumps, and falling in love with a veterinarian. As usual, the smooth and supremely versatile Jarvis inhabits a plethora of diverse characters, ranging from stuffed-shirt lawyers and cranky parents to grinning psychopathic thugs. His timing is also impeccable. Expect to be addicted and listening through the night. A.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
