    I miss Dick Francis I have been a fan of his for a long time Yes, he essentially writes the same hero over and over again, although he usually gives the guy a different name and occupation in each book Yes, his mysteries have a sameness to them at some point in the book, the hero is going to be unjustly accused of something Either the hero or his love interest is going to have some kind of infirmity or disability The hero will come from a flawed family and in some way, shape or form, the I miss Dick Francis I have been a fan of his for a long time Yes, he essentially writes the same hero over and over again, although he usually gives the guy a different name and occupation in each book Yes, his mysteries have a sameness to them at some point in the book, the hero is going to be unjustly accused of something Either the hero or his love interest is going to have some kind of infirmity or disability The hero will come from a flawed...
