Wild Horses


Dick Francis was a popular British horse racing crime writer and retired jockey. Francis wrote more than 40 international best-sellers. Francis rarely re-used his lead characters. Only two heroes were used more than once; injured ex-jockey turned one-armed private investigator Sid Halley and Kit Fielding. Dick Francis worked on his books with his wife, Mary, before her death. Dick considered his wife to be his co-writer - as he is quoted in the book, "The Dick Francis Companion", released in 2003: "Mary and I worked as a team. ... I have often said that I would have been happy to have both our names on the cover. Mary's family always called me Richard due to having another Dick in the family. I am Richard, Mary was Mary, and Dick Francis was the two of us together." Wild Horses is a thrilling novel about the illusion of film and the reality of murder. It stands up as one of Francis’ most sure creations. An ageing racing writer, Valentine Clark, reveals on his deathbed information that sheds new light on the twenty-five-year-old hanging of a horse trainer’s attractive wife. It is Thomas Lyon, a film director, who is visiting Clark and is on hand to hear the shocking revelation. Clark had believed that he was unburdening himself to a priest. The remarkable coincidence is that Lyon is in the process of making a film version of the woman’s tragic death. The film would be based on a novel that had been published about the case.
