    MOBI Silks Kindle Ç È shop peters.de silks pdf, Silks KindleAs with Dead Heat the other Francis fatherson outing all the elements are there for a good story but once again it doesn't deliver at the level readers of Francis have come to expect The pacing is just a bit off son Felix still dump truck loads in the middle of the narrative that slow it down to almost stopping the story and some characters who could have been used to better advantage are given short shrift making the reader wonder why all the detail had been given about that character And then there is an uncharacteristic nod to Dead Heat something Dad never did unless it was vital to the story or character development If this continues this really doesn't bode well for the future of the Francis name If the next fatherson collaboration is a stinker too it's time to hang up the word processor rather than let such a fine author go down in disgrace His

    MOBI Silks Kindle Ç È shop peters.de silks pdf, Silks KindleThis is a typical well written Dick Francis book co written with his son Felix and has a storyline that lies thick in a courtroom with an amateur jump jockey trained barrister trying to defend a fellow jockey for a murder he didn't commit I really enjoyed this book and only dropped a star for maybe being a little over the top in legal jargon and procedure Fans of John Grisham would love this Would recommend

    MOBI Silks Kindle Ç È shop peters.de silks pdf, Silks KindleWhen the lawyer character has the nickname Perry Mason you go into the story with certain expectationsA few years before this story starts lawyer Geoffrey Mason failed to successfully defend his client Now that client has been released and is coming after him in a tale that combines horse racing murder and manipulation Like a Perry Mason episode most of the significant drama takes place in the courtroomThis is the first Dick Francis book I've read and going on the blurb it's not one I would have felt inspired to pick up Given that I recently read Triple Crown Leadership Building Excellent Ethical and Enduring Organizations horse racing is something I'm learning and about Memo to self take myself off to the races I felt a little disappointed then that the novel didn't give a lot of inside into the horse racing worldThat said I really enjoyed this book and it's t

    MOBI Silks Kindle Ç È shop peters.de silks pdf, Silks KindleAs usual with Dick Francis the plot is interesting and lots of knowledge is imparted This time however great uantities of exposition are ladled out in steaming lumps This becomes tedious rather uickly Our barrister hero a widower becomes involved in a case that reaches its tentacles deep into the horse racing world So far so goodWhat made Francis so good was the humanity of his heroes the depths they had to reach for courage and the witty dialogue These attributes must have been the contribution of his wife Mary because the change is marked since her death a few years ago Francis is now collaborating with his son who taught physics for many years and it showsIn this case I freuently felt as though I were in a classroom being taught the intricacies and precedents relevant to the law cases under review And when we weren't in the classroom the hero and his new lady love and his friends wer

    MOBI Silks Kindle Ç È shop peters.de silks pdf, Silks KindleThis was my first and last Dick Francis novel I knew at the start it was no great work of literature yet some of the plot resolutions felt incredibly forced and amaturish I found the central character unsympathetic and only continued to read in hopes of a satisfying resolve DIDN'T HAPPEN Not only was it NOT satidfying it was offensive THe book might have earned a 3 for the brief insights into the judicail system but the last two paragraphs lowered it to a one
