Reviews of 10lb Penalty (1997)
Review by waffleboy (2007-08-01)
I am not surprised to see little support of Dick Francis on this site. Heaven forbid the posters here like a popular novel. But Dick Francis is a fantastic writer. While it can be a little distracting that all of his books revolve around horse racing, you generally forget that fact twenty pages in. Francis' characters jump off of the page and you never know where the mystery will lead. 10 lb. penalty is a perfect example of his style. If you are a fan of mysteries, give Dick Francis a shot. You won't be disappointed.
