My dad and I both love Dick and Felix Francis and look forward to September each year. Dad got first read this year and he was underwhelmed. I got second read and I was underwhelmed. Dad isn't the world's best literary critic but he said "They always grab me and I can't put them down but this one doesn't" - he was right, I could take or leave it. It didn't grab me from the start then there was a whole lot of narrative with heaps of technical information that just seemed to keep on coming, none of the short sentences, action packed plot that characterised older books. Dick rarely repeated his heroes but we have had several now with Jefferson as the hero and he's wearing a little thin - there wasnt even a decent love contact this time. Sorry, disappointed with this one.
Yet another top quality racing suspense thriller with an introduction to American horse racing.Must close now to start my next Francis audio book.
Its just like his dad! Jarvis sounds smarmy. plot interesting and the usual informative research. wish the legal bit was explained
