I agree wholeheartedly with Dick Lochte's comments about the
early Dick Francis books. I love them all, especially ODDS
AGAINST. Great opening paragraph. And I can also recommend
Dick's own LAUGHING DOG, which might not be exactly
hardboiled but which is pretty damned funny. As for a
hardboiled mystery about dogfighting, well, there's a really
good one. It's ARIZONA KISS by Ray Ring. Read it if you can
find a copy.
