I should have read this book when it first came out in 1971. The cover price on a new paperback then was only 95 cents. It was only later that I discovered Dick Francis, whom I now consider to be one of the best mystery/thriller authors ever. To my mind Enquiry captures all the qualities that have since made him one of my favorite of all novelists. His writing is uncluttered and doesn't lose you in a huge cast of characters you can't keep track of. His plots are fresh, excitingly paced and filled with characters who seem remarkably human and three-dimensional with their passions, plotting, and motivations. So far I've read 27 of the 48 novels I believe he wrote solely or in his later decade with his son Felix. I still have 21 to go and I can't wait to read each of them. His protagonists vary. While several of them recur in several different novels, most of them are discrete different individuals with different backgrounds, occupations, histories and personalities. Francis who was at various times the steeplechase jockey of the Queen of England, a successful journalist, an RAF pilot, and an amazingly compelling and productive author, reflects some of his own past in creating the individual dramas of each book, almost always setting them in some relationship to British or international steeplechase or flat racing that somehow involves each of his sets of characters. His villains are genuinely dangerous and menacing. Each book draws clear distinctions between right and wrong, but don't make it a simple matter for his characters to make choices. None of them is perfectly good or perfectly evil, they are drawn from the issues of life and human relationships familiar to all of us. While Francis pere is no longer with us, his books still are. I enjoy them immensely and am happy to suggest you try them too if you haven't yet.
grand star
The story of Enquiry begins after a jockey, Kelly Hughes, and a trainer, Dexter Cranfield, have been stripped of their licenses and banned from any association with racing. Thanks to a flashback, we learn the hearing was pretty much a kangaroo court and the pair was framed for intentionally throwing a race. Hughes decides to find out what really happened and starts digging into things. Along the way, he starts to get chummy with Cranfield's daughter, making for some interesting cross-class romance. From there, things proceed to resolution in a pretty straightforward fashion for a mystery.

Enquiry moves along at a quick pace, and is not a long book at 264 pages. Kelly Hughes is the main character and he's honest, fairly courageous, and reasonably intelligent. He's no detective but he is determined to keep digging until he can find out who set him up. It doesn't take long for you to get firmly in his corner and stay there. The supporting cast is also interesting. It was definitely a nice touch to show the class snobbery between aristocracy and laborers.

This book is a good read and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a mystery. Either first time readers or established fans of Francis should be pleased with what they find here. I can't point out any real flaws in the book because it didn't suffer from any. Buy it, read it, and enjoy it.
I'm a Dick Francis fan and this engaging mystery is up to his usual high standard. It also kept me wide awake on a 14 hr drive. I played all 5 CDs with no problems (no scratches/skips). Arrived on time for my long trip too. So glad I bought it!
This is a good book that like most Dick Francis is an easy read, enjoyable, hard
to put down, and has really great character painting throughout. Also has some
interesting amateur sluthing which is a bit hard to accept in places, but nonetheless
is not too overdone and helps the story along.

I recommend highly!
Love Me
I can't stand horse racing, yet Dick Francis always manages to make it sound so exciting and thrilling. His characters are, as usual, well developed and (mostly) believable. It is quite a scary thought that the governing body of racing has so much power over the lives of those involved. Another of his books that I just couldn't put down.
A great read.
Second time I have read this! Always a good read by the talented Mr Francis. Recommend it to anyone especially with even a small interest in the sport of Kings!
Dick Francis is always a good read. This presentation lost a little in the transfer to radio drama, but still very enjoyable.
