PITY THE SINNER by Mark Daniel
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: April 18, 1996

"The most formulaic of Daniel's four racing thrillers (Sleek Bodies, 1995, etc.), but in its mounting pace, very reminiscent of Dick Francis's Nerve, the most deeply satisfying of them all."
Good news, bad news. Read full book review >
SLEEK BODIES by Mark Daniel
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 31, 1995

"But like his convoluted, exhaustively detailed plot, he's carrying too much weight for the distance here."
Ever since he was caught out in a racing scam that wrecked his marriage and humbled his family, Philip Glaister has been licking his wounds in the south of France, minding his own business and occasionally providing the likes of wealthy, noble rotter Richard Heron and his wife, Philip's childhood friend Eledi Heron, with sportive young women.

THE BOLD THING by Mark Daniel
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: March 2, 1994

"Daniel's skill here in playing off multiple levels of corruption and compromise allows him to kick over the Dick Francis traces that hobbled his The Devil to Pay (1993): a superior horseracing suspenser."
A jockey-trainer with a checkered past returns home to Ireland and the farm that was once his family's—only to enter a world more compromised and compromising than he is. Read full book review >
THE DEVIL TO PAY by Mark Daniel
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 13, 1993

"He could stand to take off a few pounds before the next weigh-in."
Another steeplechase-thriller from a British writer (Unbridled, 1990) who seems intent on getting on Dick Francis's tail—and succeeds perhaps better than he might wish. Read full book review >
A CHILD'S TREASURY OF SEASIDE VERSE by Mark Daniel
POETRY
Released: May 1, 1991

"Brief sketches of the 33 poets; list of the painters; index of first lines. (Poetry. 6+)"
In the manner of this anthologist's A Child's Treasury of Animal Verse (1989), etc., here are more than 70 poems—mostly from well-known 19th-century British poets—handsomely illustrated with contemporary paintings, engravings, and silhouettes. Read full book review >
