Crest 24500 REFLEX Good
By Dick Francis
Phillip Nore is a long time jockey who dabbles in amateur photography. When a well known but little liked professional racing photographer is killed in a car crash, Nore eventually, accidentally, comes into possession of the man's body of work and records. Suddenly Nore and those close to him a being subjected to break-in's in their home, apparently random attacks and so on. Nore comes to understand that the records and negatives he holds are the source of the trouble. He begins looking into the photographers past, and finds a nasty surprise indeed. The question is, can he get to the bottom of this mess before he gets killed?
Francis' plots always touch on at least one subject other than racing. This one is exceptional,made enjoysble by the detailed description of the technical aspects of photography needed to decipher the situation. Yeah, that kind of stuph is probably considered obsolete in this age of digital carmeas and pocket phone videos, but it's still fascinating.
