Reflex is not my favorite Dick Francis, but it's still a fun read. There's lots of good information about photography and photographic puzzles in here, and a rather sweet story about an isolated man creating a new sense of family for himself while he solves the mysteries dumped on his doorstep. I was disappointed that one important thread was left hanging at the end, but I suppose we should trust the main character to fix that problem as his life continues after the book is finished!
I had a little trouble getting into this one. Having said that, I'm glad I stuck with it. I can see how the protagonist was a foundation for my (later published) favorite, Sid Halley. Dick Francis does (did) such an amazing job of of creating likeable protagonists. Sadly, I've almost read everything he's published.
