Publisher's Summary

With the stakes so high, racing can be a deadly business...best-selling author Felix Francis' latest thriller!
Chris Rankin is a doctor, a specialist in emergency medicine at Cheltenham Hospital, but a doctor who also has health problems.
A smartly dressed man has been found unconscious at the local racecourse and is rushed to the hospital, where he subsequently dies. But who is he? Where does he come from? He had no form of identification on him, and no one claims the body.
Doctor Rankin is intrigued by the nameless dead man, obsessed even, and starts asking questions. However, someone doesn't want the questions answered and will go to any lengths to prevent it, including attempting murder. But no one else believes that someone tried to kill Chris, leaving the doctor no option but to discover who the nameless man is and why he died, preferably before following him into an early grave.

Not as good as usual

Felix is unfortunately not in the same class as the original Dick Francis. Latterly the stories have contained too much important fact and that gets boring. The trademark Dick Francis was "catch them with the first sentence" followed by action, short sentences and a thrilling climax. This book had a lot of academic information which was quite convoluted and somewhat boring. The narrator irritated me beyond measure, she was too little girl prissy for a woman heading into her 40s with a responsible medical position, I cant imagine her kicking anyone anywhere but I guess she had to try. But, I generally dont like female narrators, they have difficulty with male voices (as did this one).

better than I expected!

I was a bit unsure if I would like this one as it's a departure from the usual Francis formula. Ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would in the end though. I'd recommend giving it a go

Frustrating

Frustrating. Too slow to get going. By the time I'd got to chapter 17 I'd had enough and I fast forward to chapter 35. I feel annoyed at having wasted money on this.

Awful book

Boring, depressing story that is only very loosely linked to horse racing. Difficult to like any of the characters, especially the main character who I found whiny and irritating. Too many americanisms even though it's set in England.

Unfortunately Disappointed

I was excited for a female main character and the prospect of a racecourse doctor was a fresh idea with so much promise but unfortunately I was bitterly disappointed with the story and did not like the main character. I found her extremely tedious and could not develope any rapport with her. The description that came to mind repeatedly throughout the book was a mental health awareness advertisement trying to disguise itself as a novel.
I'm so glad I chose to listen to this book where I could complete other tasks in conjunction rather than dedicating time to sitting down and reading it; time that would have been considered a waste.
It is such a shame because I have enjoyed Felix Francis' other Dick Francis books and I hope his future books will be much more enjoyable.
