Book News - Dick Francis sadly died today.

Sadly we heard that crime writer Dick Francis, famous for his horse racing-based crime novels, has died today aged 89. Being a crime fiction enthusiast I have read many of his books - and we have many of his first editions in stock on our web site at www.peakirkbooks.com.

  1. I had the same reaction to this news as I did when Georgette Heyer died - what will I do in the autumn when the annual book is due? There is one more to come we're told and, though I don't find the joint books he wrote with Felix as compelling as the earlier titles, no doubt I shall buy it to complete the set. Question is, who am I going to collect next?
