The display on the digital thermometer to my left read 105 degrees—105 degrees Celsius, that is, 221 degrees Fahrenheit.
Friday 56: 
Dave had been extremely fortunate not to have had half a ton of horse landing right on top of him.
This week I am reading Front Runner by Felix Francis. Here is the description of this mystery/thriller from Amazon:
Jefferson Hinkley is back in the newest Dick Francis thriller by the New York Times–bestselling author of Damage.

In his role as an undercover investigator for the British Horseracing Authority, Jeff Hinkley is approached by a multi-time champion jockey to discuss the delicate matter of losing races on purpose. Little does he know that the call will set off a lethal chain of events, including the apparent suicide of the jockey and an attempt on Hinkley’s own life. Never one to leave suspicious events alone, Hinkley begins investigating the jockey and the races he may have thrown. But there are others out there who intend to prevent his inquiry from probing further . . . at any cost.


  1. Between the 221 degrees and half a ton horse of horses falling on people, this sounds like a dangerous book. ;-) I'd love for you and your readers to check out my BB & 56...

  2. Good choice. I enjoy reading Dick Francis too.

  3. Wow, and I thought it was hot here in the summer! lol.

    Thanks for sharing...and now I'm curious. Here's mine: “HILLBILLY ELEGY”

  4. I haven't heard of this series before, but I like the sound of it.

  5. I haven't read Dick Francis in forever! I used to love his books. This is his son taking over right? Sounds like a fun read.

  6. I can relate to the heat living on the Gulf Coast. And I've also had a horse fall on me before. This book sounds like great fun.
