Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Felix Francis returns with another nail-biting thriller in the Dick Francis tradition. 

It is said that everyone over a certain age can remember distinctly what they were doing when they heard that President Kennedy had been assassinated, or that Princess Diana had been killed in a Paris car crash, but I, for one, could recall all too clearly where I was standing when a policeman told me that my wife had been murdered. 

Bill Russell is acting as a volunteer steward at Warwick races when he confronts his worst nightmare - the violent death of his much-loved wife. But worse is to come when he is accused of killing her and hounded mercilessly by the media. His life begins to unravel completely as he loses his job and is in danger of losing his home as well. Even his best friends turn against him, believing him guilty of the heinous crime in spite of the lack of compelling evidence. 

Bill sets out to clear his name but finds that proving one's innocence is not easy - one has to find the true culprit, and Bill believes he knows who it is. But can he prove it before he becomes another victim of the murderer. Guilty Not Guilty is a journey of greed and jealousy set against the grief of personal tragedy and loss, with many a twist and turn along the way.

Great murder mystery

This is a murder mystery AND a family drama. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It provided some information as to the workings of the English system of laws (not to mention the difference between solicitors and barristers - which I had never understood previously). This novel continued the "trademark" of the Francis novels of providing an inside look at an area of English life and the background of the practices in an industry (in this case, the legal industry and the law). . All of that said, I did NOT enjoy this particular novel quite as much as I have enjoyed all of the others in the Dick Francis/Felix Francis novels. A four and a third stars rather than a solid five stars. Still head and shoulders above what most other authors do and well worth the investment.

Not what I have come to expect from this author

Very repetitive with a lot of filler. Main character not engaging and ending unsatisfactory.

Dick Frances is back!

Felix is now in the same class as his father and mother! I couldn't stop listening to this most satisfying mystery that was the equal to all his parents efforts. Bravo and hurry up with the next one!

Not interesting

Started out as a good mystery but I lost interest after a few chapters. When I realized how much longer the book was, I decided I couldn't finish it. I kept losing interest. Felix Francis should NOT be piggybacking his father's name on his books, anymore. I got it when he was writing WITH his dad but not after his passing. This book in particular is tarnishing his dad's legacy.

Great sequel (of sorts)

Not actually a sequel but Dick Francis’ son turns out to be as good a writer as his Dad, who was always one of my favorites. Not as much race track detail but even more intriguing character development. Absolutely worth listening to.

Not a favorite

I was very disappointed in this book. I’ve enjoyed Dick and Felix Francis’other books. This one had a bare nod to the horse racing community. That was one disappointment. I look forward to that element in the Francis books. Additionally this one drug on and felt much more like a class lecture at times, there was a lot more drama than it felt like it needed. I considered returning it to Audible but went ahead and listened to the whole book to give it a chance.

horrendously boring book with no real ending.

this book was a huge disappointment. nothing really to do with horses and races, no action drama in it, and the ending is left unfinished. I am not sure I will buy another Felix Francis book. I certainly will not buy it as an audible book. I will need it in hard copy so I can fast-forward through it if necessary. And if the next one is as bad as this one that will be the last one

Really a good story

Felix has done an excellent job carrying on with the series. Lots of twists and turns keep this book interesting.

Disappointing

I have read every Dick Francis novel, and every one written by Felix Francis, following in his father's footsteps. This is the first I haven't liked. It needs either more to the plot, or stronger editing. You know something more has to happen, but it takes 10 hours to get there.
