enjoyed this book. Felix Francis is writing books as good as his father Dick Francis.

Anyone that likes suspense and/or horses should read any novel by Dick Francis and now by his son, Felix. Although all of them are stand alone, some of the characters appear in more than one of his books, so reading them in order of publication makes it easier to understand some of the references to past occurences.

Dick Francis has been one of my favorites for years. I've read all his books, most more than once. I was afraid the quality would suffer when his son's name began to appear on the cover, and was happy to find the old "Dick Francis" formula is alive and well. If you're a fan, you know what to expect and Felix Francis does not disapoint. Tom Forsyth is a classic Francis hero - strong, silent, resourceful, patient, unwavering, and of course winning out over the bad guys in the end. Very satisfying read.
