Publisher's Summary

Things are hotting up in this latest thriller from best-selling author Felix Francis, in his fifth solo novel Front Runner.
Jefferson Hinkley is back. In his role as an undercover investigator for the British Horseracing Authority, Jeff is approached by the multi-time champion jockey, Dave Swinton, to discuss the delicate matter of losing races on purpose. Little does Jeff realise that the call would result in an attempt on his life, locked in a sauna with the temperature well above boiling point.
Dave Swinton is then found dead, burnt beyond recognition in his car at a deserted beauty spot. The police think it's a suicide but Jeff is not so sure. He starts to investigate the possible races that Swinton could have intentionally lost but discovers instead that others are out to prevent him from doing so, at any cost.

As good as his father was

A very good story and great ending , the story teller was also well chosen and kept the story tense in a good way

Not a classic...

I really struggled to finish this book which is unusual as far as Dick/Felix Francis books go. The main protagonist wasn't very likable and he did ridiculous things considering he was supposed to be an investigator, I found my self thinking 'don't do that' on a number of occasions. I didn't like the narration either, far too pompous.
