Winning was all Winning was my function What I was there for What I wanted What I was born forIn the dream I won the race The shouting turned to cheering and the cheering lifted me up on its wings like a wave But the winning was all not the cheering I woke in the dark as I often did at four in the morningThere was silence No cheering just silenceI could still feel the way I moved with the horse the ripple of muscle through both of the striving bodies uniting in one I could still feel the irons round my feet the calves of my legs gripping the balance the nearness to my head of the stretching brown neck the mane blowing in my mouth my hands on the reinsThere came at that point the second awakening The real one The moment in which I first moved and opened my eyes and remembered that I wouldn t ride any races ever Sid Halley is the uintessential Francis hero It is no surprise for me that in a long list of stand alone novels he is the only one to be given a second and third chance in the limelight He is probably the closest the author has come to talk about himself about the former top steeplechase jockey whose whole life turned around the racing track who was forced to give up the love of his life and start a new career And who brought to this new career all the will to get to the top all the dedication and the professionalism that defined him on the back of a horseThis particular novel has an additional personal appeal to me as it is the very first thriller by Dick Francis that I ever read back in the early 1990 s Twenty five years later I am still one of the faithfull fans of the authorSid Halley has been forced out of his chosen profession by a horrible accident that mauled his whip hand In his first novel Odds Against he is trying to deal with the trauma and to find a new purpose in life by joining a private investigation agency focusing on the racing world In the beginning of this second novel Sid is still investigating crooks and liars around the racetrack is self employed and rather too well appreciated for his success This fame and his rate of success translates in the bad guys trying to drive him out by threats and physical violenceAs you can see from my opening uote the thriller is written in the first person narrative and a liking for the protagonist is key to the enjoyment of the ride When I try to picture Sid in my mind I m thinking of one of those tall in the saddle cowboy heroes of the 50 s like Jimmy Stewart Gary Cooper or Gregory Peck The uiet types unassuming soft spoken and serious but unbending and relentless in the pursuit of justice Sid may be viewed as bad news by the rascals he chases but in his own mind he is daily battling with feelings of inadeuacy with loneliness and regrets over his broken marriage with the empty places left in his life after he was exiled from the racetrack When you look at me what do you see You know what I see Do you see a lot of fears and self doubts and feelings of shame and uselessness and inadeuacy Of course not you never show feelings like that No one does Everyone has an outside and an inside and the two can be uite different To myself I m a jumble of uncertainty and fear and stupidityI believe Sid is saved by this very insecurity which pushes him to try harder and to fight back I also admire his stoicism his sense of humour and his curiosity about the world and the people he meets In a cynical world that eyes only profit and where the end justifies the evil means used to achieve it Sid is a breath of fresh air and hope in the chance of the underdog to bring down the fat cats of businessI will not go into details about the plot it is good and clever but not exceptional Three separate lines of investigation weave in and out of focus the mysterious death of champion colts an internal investigation of corruption at the top level of the Jockey Club and a private reuest from Sid s former wife to unmask a confidence trickster The obligatory scenes of brutality and physical injury are starting to annoy me a bit after encountering them in every single novel by Francis that I read but they serve their purpose in the plot and in separating the bad guys from the good guysIn conclusion my rating is a subjective rabid fan one but I would recommend the first two Sid Halley novels as a great entry drug for readers as yet unfamiliar with the books of Dick Francis
