IN THE FRAME
Heywood Hale Broun says: "In the Frame has the graceful yet headlong pace of the steeplechasers Dick Francis used to ride. He gallops through the gallery world as easily as he used to navigate the Grand National."
And Barbara Bannon says in Publishers Weekly: "The first Dick Francis mystery in which horses are only a peripheral part of the action is excitement from start to finish and definitely proves Francis is as much of a winner off the race track as on. Todd is an English painter—of horses. When his cousin's home is ruthlessly burglarized and the cousin's wife murdered, he wants only to help the shattered husband survive and throw off police suspicion...A blue-ribbon winner."
Dick Francis rides triumphantly and thrillingly through the field of fiction— and everything he writes about becomes so vivid the reader feels he is as fully involved with the adventures and perils the novelist is creating for his characters as they are. This time Dick Francis moves from England to Australia and New Zealand, and the reader will suddenly find himself involved in an artist's dangerous manhunt as he tries, against odds, to unravel a number of difficult puzzles that are woven around arson and murder.
As Kirkus Reviews said: "The horses are painted ones this time, but stop worrying.
You won't have a moment to miss the hooves and the muck Action, character, and color ride in perfect balance again and the 'Am I my brother's keeper?' motif returns in subtle high gear, just to remind us that Francis stays on top because he remembers to touch bottom."
