Dick Francis, 1920-2010

Written on: February 15th, 2010 by: Richard.James in Blog Posts

Dick-Francis-author.-001Champion jockey and incredibly prolific mystery/thriller author Dick Francis died over the weekend at his home in Grand Cayman. Francis wrote thrillers set in the world of horse racing, at a pace of almost one a year for 40 years. His books are known for their hard-boiled style stripped of that genre’s sex and violence- the Queen Mother was one of his biggest fans and she disapproved of vulgarity. Find his books at any one of your Delaware Library Catalog libraries. Click here for a list.
