About this deal

For items which are up to a shoe box in size, we do make every effort to dispatch in 48 working hours. It's got a decent storyline of shady dealings in horseflesh trading, with interesting characters and lurking menace. I did make it to the end so it wasn't a dead loss, but I would recommend other Dick Francis books ahead of this one, especially For Kicks, Odds Against, or his first novel Dead Cert. Henry (who has a commercial licence) flies the larger hijacked place DC4 back to his home airport just enough fuel, only just found the airport.

Altogether, this is one for holding in reserve until you've worked your way through the best of Francis' novels, unless you're particularly gripped by novels set in the skies. an interesting, unusual, entertaining story with likable good guys, surprising bad guys, and interesting (and sometimes misleading) inbetween-guys, not to mention the gratifying resolution that's hardly ever predictable.No mixing or waiting is required, and it remains workable until exposed to direct sunlight or Loon’s UV lamps, at which point it will cure in a matter of seconds.

I liked the way Henry matures and learns to open himself up to others; by the end he is a changed man. An exciting tale of smuggling and dire plotting, Francis' 'Flying Finish' fulfils many adventuring desires with this work of horses, planes, and disappearances. The hero is pretty clearly intended to be read as being somewhere on the autistic spectrum (although it's never made explicit) and the handling of both his interior monologue and his emotions is fascinating.

p>Use it as an adhesive for eyes, a thick head cement, quick-building clear back for scuds, or instant repair for damaged flies.

For instance Bronze and to a lesser extent bronze resin/cold cast bronze will aquire a green patina, usually rather sought after and all could attract moss lichen and a greeny pollen especially under trees which should be removed regularly with warm water and washing up liquid. But all Henry wanted was a career that would bring him some genuine fulfilment, a little adventure, and a chance to prove his true character.At the beginning of the book, he takes a job helping to transport horses by plane which no one who knows him can understand. This was the first Francis book in my collection,and after that I became an avid collector of his books.
