Field of Thirteen, by Dick Francis
This is a book of thirteen short stories by Dick Francis. I have read a couple of his books and enjoyed them very much. It speaks to his brilliant gift for writing that I enjoy reading his works so much, although I have never had an interest in horse racing. In this selection of mystery stories, each one has a surprise twist at the end. His memorable characters run the gamut in the horse-racing world: jockeys, trainers, owners, betters, bookies, mothers, and wealthy widows.
