Couldn’t get thru 3 chapters. Dick Francis would be appalled. Narrator is awful as well.

Not up to what i expected.

Only half way through - keep waiting for the plot to spark my interest - I like Felix Francis - loved his father's writings, but this one is a dud.

Different but Good!

This may be a book that appeals to women more then men, I loved it. The female doctor runs into some shady dudes who killed her patient then try to kill her and she gets even. A very satisfying ending. Because she has had a history depression, anxiety and an eating disorder, it is easy for the police to dismiss her observations and complaints. She takes matters into her own capable hands.

Hugely satisfying! Best "Francis" ever!

Very good treatment of mental illness, describing what it feels like from the inside. By contrast, Dick Francis' "Blood Sport" left me rather depressed, with no resolution to Gene Hawkins' mental state (if I'm remembering correctly after 40 years). I have been a Dick Francis fan since I was a teenager in the early '70's, and I've read every single Dick and Felix Francis book. I had a little trepidation when Felix took over, and it did seem like at first the stories weren't quite as emotionally deep, however, that feeling didn't last long. Truth be told, I think Felix had been helping out the stories quite a bit toward the end of Dick's life. In any case, he's certainly got the formula down pat.
This story is a good balance of all the elements: pace, action, emotion, suspense, satisfaction, even believability. Having struggled with depression myself most of my life, I could identify with Chris Rankin, the protagonist. I would like to recommend this book to anyone who has someone struggling with mental health in their life.
I never write book or product reviews, but I felt so strongly about this book that I had to express a little of what I felt after listening to it twice in a row (it was that good).
A word about the reader (performer): Clare Corbett was excellent! Supurb accents, emotions, different voices, etc. Just an all-around good performance!

As always gripping, riveting I love Felixs books. His dad would be proud. Highly recommend.
