I made it twelve, the auctioneer said thirteen, and between us we limped up to his own bid of nineteen. You’re losing him,’ said the auctioneer warningly. ‘I follow you,’ I said. So you’ll go along with us in future. A positive statement, not a question. I walked with her to Vic’s-office. We stood in the doorway, looking in.

Dick Francis continues to be one of the best mystery writers ever, in my view, and I've read dozens of his books and dozens of other mysteries. What I love about Dick Francis books is that first, since he was a jockey, you learn about horses and horse racing but along with this he weaves in characters who specialize in other professions so with each read the reader learns more about some other specialty. In that way there is fascinating "non fiction" information interwoven into the always fun, twisty mysteries.
Knock-Down is the first Dick Francis novel I have read. Another great Dick Francis book, great storyline, characters and an excellent insight into what could go on behind the world of horse racing. A good friend and English teacher recommended his novels and I now own twenty-one more of his mysteries.
