by Edward Woodward,Dick Francis



I have always preferred his earlier work.

I have always preferred his earlier work. An invitation to visit South Africa during the apartheid era provided Francis with the material for this book. He takes the reader inside a gold mine and describes its workings in fascinating detail. Francis also visited the Kruger National Park which becomes the scene for a memorable climax.

In Smokescreen, Edward Lincoln is a worldwide celebrity who plays detectives on the big screen. His godmother Nerissa sends him to South Africa to see why her string of horses is running very badly, they're to be the bequest to another nephew, a golden boy in charm as well as potential fact.

Richard Stanley Francis CBE FRSL (31 October 1920 – 14 February 2010) was a British crime writer, and former steeplechase jockey, whose novels centre on horse racing in England. After wartime service in the RAF, Francis became a full-time jump-jockey, winning over 350 races and becoming champion jockey of the British National Hunt.

Mr Klugvoigt, this is Edward Lincoln,’ he said to the man sitting at the end of the table: and to me added, ‘Mr Klugvoigt is the Chairman. Klugvoigt stood up, shook hands, indicated the empty chair on his left, and we all sat down. Vivi van Huren in a sweeping green hat sat opposite me, on the Chairman’s right, with her husband beside her.

Edward Lincoln had scaled the Himalayas, survived deadly car chases, defeated scores of assassins. As a film action man he'd even suffered stoically at the hands of sadistic directors. After finishing his latest film, he's asked to visit South Africa to discover why a dying friend's horses are suddenly doing so badly on the race track. Unfortunately, this attempt to help a friend soon puts Lincoln in harm's way. From a nearly fatal interview to a dangerous mishap in a gold mine, it seems only luck is keeping him alive. But fate has more in store. When the scene in the Kruger wildlife park begins to resemble Lincoln's latest big-screen adventure, even he will wonder what comes next...'A wonderfully vivid and sinister conclusion in the Kruger National Park' - "Sunday Times".

This is one of my favorite Dick Francis novels. The characters are superb, the plotting as clever as it gets, the climax nightmarish, the retribution delicious.

I don't normally warm to novels about actors, but Edward Lincoln (Link to friends) is a thoroughly likeable guy. He has nothing in common with the superheroes he portrays in film after film. He's not a crack shot, can't fly an airplane or dismantle bombs and doesn't speak Russian. He's happiest at home with the family between films.

Link's father worked in a stable, and Link would have liked to be a jockey, but he grew too tall too quickly as a lad. Anyway, he knows horses. An old family friend who doesn't have long to live asks Link to fly to South Africa and find out why her nine racehorses never win a race anymore. She's convinced that Link is as ingenious as the larger-than-life characters he plays.

Just to be kind, Link makes the trip. As it turns out, he needs to be both lucky and clever to stay alive.

This is not a political novel, despite the South Africa location. It should be read purely for the adventure.

A classics Francis-style mystery. This book doesn't centre on the world of horseracing but is permeated with horsy content as well as being set in the world of film and acting. The protagonist is likable and surprisingly relatable, and the plot is well-woven and enjoyable.

Perfect

Enjoyed the story, as always. Love Dick Francis books and appreciate that Felix Francis is continuing the legacy.

Another one of Dick Francis' fine stories. I've always enjoyed his novels, and this is another one of his finest. I had lost (lent) my original, so it was time to replace it. The protagonist struggles but gets there in the end. If you've never read any of his novels, you should start immediately! There are a few "Britishisms" that American readers might find a little strange (but interesting). Enjoy...

Love Dick Francis and I have most of his books and always enjoy them

I do so enjoy curling up in bed with a good Dick...in fact my husband gets quite jealous. Its more than just a well researched book, its the timing and flow of the words on paper/kindle...the "cadence" to use a horsey term. Its like sitting trot on a horse that is an armchair ride
love his writing, not the ones written with his son, or by his son. the meat just isn't there.
