Well-plotted and full of atmospheric charm, Reflex demonstrates the fine style that earned Dick Francis the title of Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America. This fast-paced story of a jockey's courageous murder investigation exposes the politics and corruption at the heart of the British racing world. Philip Nore has no greater ambition than to successfully complete the last years of his career as a jockey, even if it means bending the rules a bit. But when pushed, Philip discovers that there really are a few other things that matter to him. One is finding the truth about the death of a much hated track photographer. Reflex showcases the author's gift for creating heroes out of ordinary men. Simon Prebble's distinctive voice, deep and mildly accented, is perfect for Francis' work. His performance highlights the psychological drama and intrigue to deliver a positively exhilarating listening experience.

    " Reflex is not my favorite Dick Francis, but it's still a fun read. There's lots of good information about photography and photographic puzzles in here, and a rather sweet story about an isolated man creating a new sense of family for himself while he solves the mysteries dumped on his doorstep. I was disappointed that one important thread was left hanging at the end, but I suppose we should trust the main character to fix that problem as his life continues after the book is finished! "

    " This was one of the first Dick Francis books I read and remains my favorite to this day. It's fun to read and not completely fluffy. The photography tricks are succinctly but clearly explained and were part of the initial draw for me, but the satisfying plot and the sympathetic protagonist (Phillip Nore) are the reasons it stays at the top of my list.
