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
"A Good Storyline."
I thought Peter Darwin & Annabel Would have Had A Bigger Role as he Had a Whole Book to himself when Dick F Was Alive.
Come on You Can Do Better If You Are Going to Use your Dads Old Characters. Give them a Bigger Role.
"Not a patch on Dick Francis"
I very quickly became bored with this book. Too much unnecessary information about nothing in particular. Whenever something untoward happened to Mr Hinkley it wasn't rocket science to work out roughly what it would be, or how he would extradite himself.
Tomb In Turkey by Simon Brett
Yes, adequate, but not as good as I know he can be.
At least we didn't have two and a half hours where Mr Hinkley knew something we didn't, as in his previous book.
Sorry, but compared to his father, Felix just doesn't cut it for me.
"A First class winner"
Top class from start to finish ,the delivery was excellent.I'm just about to start my next "Francis" audio book.
