Dick Francis RIP

Dick Francis died a few months ago . He was a British jockey who became an author writing about 40 novels starting with "Dead Cert" in 1962. The novels were in the mystery/crime/adventure/thriller genre which I favor and often drew on his horse racing background. They were a bit formulaic but I liked the formula especially in the earlier books.
