When jockey Martin Stukely dies after a fall at Cheltenham, he accidentally embroils his friend Gerard Logan in a perilous search for a stolen videotape. Logan is a glassblower on the verge of widespread acclaim. Long accustomed to the frightful dangers inherent in molten glass and in maintaining a glassmaking furnace at never less than 1800 degrees Fahrenheit, Logan is suddenly faced with terrifying threats to his business, his courage, and his life. Believing that the missing video holds the key to a priceless treasure, and wrongly convinced that Logan knows where to find it, criminal forces set out to press him for information he doesn't have. To survive, he realizes that he himself must sort out the truth. The final race to the tape throws more hazards in Logan's way than his dead jockey friend could ever have imagined. Glass shatters. Logan doesn't. . . but it's a close-run thing.… (mer)

glass maker involved in stolen cancer research

About Dick Francis you can either say "the books are all the same" or "you get exactly what you expect". There will be a fairly young main character that excel at his occupation. The occupation will always be different and never directly involved in horse racing, but some way still involved in the racing world. The main character will be single but meet a lovely girl somewhere along the trip. The main character will suffer bodily harm. The books are always told from a first person perspective. There will always be detailed technical explanations about the main characters occupation, showing that Dick Francis has done thorough research. It's probably possible to add more similarities with some effort.

So I know all this, and still I keep reading his books? Well, they are quite short, quite well written and in general enjoyable. Never a Nobel Prize winner, but he deserves his three stars for this book as well. ( )

Beautiful. A huge Sterek fan, I only recently have branched out to Petopher and found the ones that I enjoy best are the ones that explore Chris's recognition about how deep Peter's hurt" goes. It is another one of those missed opportunities by the show that they villainized Peter's revenge rather than explored the pain that it arose from. After all, being human, I can empathize that having your whole family deliberately burned to death by a deranged sociopath, left in a coma in a hospital for six of the prime years of your life and seemingly abandoned by the two remaining family members you have - well, yeah you might get a free pass to lose your mind for a while and give into your revenge (it might not be "okay", but it's understandable). In just over 5,000 words, DW gives us reflections by a very introspective Chris. Though the story differs greatly, obviously, the level and beauty of Chris's interior monologue is reminiscent of the moods set in M_Leigh's works and fully fleshed out characters emerge in mere pages, not only through Chris's thoughts, but Peter is re-imagined through his eyes as well. Another solid addition to the Teen Wolf fandom from Discontentedwinter. * For anyone looking for the same dynamic found here with a bit more sexy times, I recommend ' target="_blank">http://archiveofourown.org/works/984701"> Choices and Consent by GoddessofBirth. Or for more sweet feels with a sexy ending, ' target="_blank">http://archiveofourown.org/works/2800646/chapters/6286517"> All Your Promises by TheVoiceofWrath. " ( )

The last of my unread Dick Francis mysteries. Three with Felix remaining to read.

I enjoyed Shattered, despite a couple of hunh moments when a plot device seemed too contrived. Otherwise very good, and classic Francis style. ( )

Far from my favourite Dick Francis, this one just didn't speak to me and I was pleased to be finished it. ( )
