Review: Shattered

Shattered by Dick Francis

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Francis is always competent, and that’s what this book is: competent, without ever setting the pulse racing or the heart hammering. Francis’ characters are rounded without being engaging, his convoluted plot involved without being terribly involving, and while there’s nothing wrong with anything in the novel, equally there’s nothing that really grips the reader and refuses to let go. I like Francis’ work, but this is very much middle of the range.
