Odds Against

It’s amazing what bodily injury can do for a man. A fall from a racehorse left brilliant jockey Sid Halley dangerously depressed, with a wrecked hand and the need for a new career. It was a bullet wound that helped him find one.

Publisher's Summary

It’s amazing what bodily injury can do for a man. A fall from a racehorse left brilliant jockey Sid Halley dangerously depressed, with a wrecked hand and the need for a new career. It was a bullet wound that helped him find one.

Although he’d been with a detective agency since his racing accident, it isn’t until some two-bit hoodlum drills a slug into his side that he is sent out on a case of his own. That is where he meets Zanna Martin, a woman who just might make life worth living again. But it is an even-money bet that he will be killed before she has the chance.

    "Francis' Wordcraft"

    Francis does it again; crafting intrigue, human nature and resilience into a story hard to put down. Enjoyed every page.

    "A well written and performed mystery"

    A typical Francis book, wanted to continue to work through it and figure out who and why. I love his books.

    "Fabulous!"

    Odds Against is the first of the Sid Halley books by Dick Francis and Geoffrey Howard is a wonderful narrator for Sid. This is an excellent book with a stellar narrator. Do not hesitate to buy - you will not be disappointed.
