Similar books to Dead Heat (A Dick Francis Novel). Francis has both great talent and curiosity which combine in many novels to provide not just a great mystery with deft plot twists and strong characterizations for even minor characters, but the curiosity he has for so many different professions allows him to weave new worlds into that of racing. I have gotten a taste for the artist's life, the glassblower's, the balloonist, a herbalist's and banker's, a toy inventor, and in this effortless-to-read combination of architecture and racing and Rogane, Francis has gifted us with another superb tail.

I usually don't like children in books (they are traditionally depicted as cliched brats, and tiresome to read), but Francis did a marvelous job of making the six sons in this novel individual and delightful. The hero's relationship with his wife was sad--I would've preferred something more romantic and loving, as the reader usually gets from Francis. The evil Stratton family was pretty darned evil. Francis seems to have a habit of never involving the police in the nasty affairs of his plots, so not all of the bad guys receive a proper comeuppance. In this book, some of the Strattons got their just desserts, but others didn't, which is somewhat unsatisfactory. But everything, as usual, was well-depicted, and so this Francis novel is a win. I'm still thinking about it...

I have read all of Francis's novels--many probably 10 times. This novel is one of my favorites. Francis has both great talent and curiosity which combine in many novels to provide not just a great mystery with deft plot twists and strong characterizations for even minor characters, but the curiosity he has for so many different professions allows him to weave new worlds into that of racing. I have gotten a taste for the artist's life, the glassblower's, the balloonist, a herbalist's and banker's, a toy inventor, and in this effortless-to-read combination of architecture and racing and Rogane, Francis has gifted us with another superb tail.
The wistful longing Lee has for one of the minor characters who reminds him of his wife at the beginning of their romance is just as true as the engineering knowledge he offers the reader along the way.

The children which don't often appear in Francis's work are as individual as any of the more important characters and Lee's love and concern for his sons add a depth to his character that other books' main characters don't share because they aren't usually parents...

Francis is sorely missed but at least his novels live on...

I own almost all the Dick Francis books. I wish there was a Dick Francis collection that was available. I am in the process of trying to fill out my collection in "used" book stores to acquire the ones that are "out of print."

I love his characters, although they are basically the same. I love the strong quiet men who always have great values and persevere against evil.

Of all of his books, however, I think this is my favorite. I love the fact that the hero is a serious, constructive and committed father. His interactions with his children are fabulous!

I love every one of Dick Francis's novels. Some have seemed more interesting to me than others, but they all have what so few authors can match. The protagonists are always interesting, highly intelligent, kind, and interested in doing what's right.

This particular protagonist is a father of six boys and a tangential member of a highly dysfunctional family. The way he solves problems and works with various family members, while trying to find answers to tough questions, truly shows Francis's skill as a story teller. As long as I can find his books, I'll read them with exquisite pleasure.

I have read all of his books, but this one has always been my favorite and I have reread it numerous times. Though always about horse racing, this one concentrated on family, loving, caring, overbearing, evil and manipulative. It was two sides to a coin showing what a loving and caring father was like versus the infected diseased over wealthy family. I miss his books very much as there will never be another Dick Francis.

One of his best. The protagonist is a builder who resurrects decrepit buildings, and also the inheritor of a few shares in a racetrack. When the racetrack finds itself in trouble, the managers reach out to our hero to get involved and try to save it and their jobs. The most fun part of the book is that the hero has six sons and they all come with him on his mission to try to save the racetrack. The plot is complex, the other characters, although a little stereotyped, are interesting, and the interaction among the protagonist and his sons is endearing.
