Publisher's Summary

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 Chris Reynolds, a specialist who treated the deceased - and who struggles with mental health issues - 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 an attempted murder. But when no one will believe that someone tried to kill Chris, the doctor is left with no option but to discover who the nameless man was and why he died...preferably before following him into an early grave.

Author bio: Felix Francis, a graduate of London University, is an accomplished outdoorsman, marksman, and pilot who has assisted with the research of many of his father's novels. The coauthor and author of numerous Dick Francis novels, most recently Triple Crown, he lives in England.

Awful

Couldn’t get thru 3 chapters. Dick Francis would be appalled. Narrator is awful as well.

Not up to what i expected.

Only half way through - keep waiting for the plot to spark my interest - I like Felix Francis - loved his father's writings, but this one is a dud.

Ruined by ending

Character was interesting and very different. Took a long time to tie in the usual racing element but then very good.
But the ending... There is a valid reason I suppose for the illogical actions near the end but still not satisfying and one line at the climax pretty much ruined the whole thing for me. Particularly with the additude in the prolog.

Excellent work by Felix!

A nice change from the usual Francis novels even though I love them so. The central character was so very human and so beautifully crafted in this book. This will go down as one of my favorites !

Different but Good!

This may be a book that appeals to women more then men, I loved it. The female doctor runs into some shady dudes who killed her patient then try to kill her and she gets even. A very satisfying ending. Because she has had a history depression, anxiety and an eating disorder, it is easy for the police to dismiss her observations and complaints. She takes matters into her own capable hands.

SIMPLY SUPERLATIVE!!

Having read every single Dick/Felix Francis book (some several times, over the years), this was for me by far the best in years. I cannot recall any previous female main characters in the series, so this beleaguered doctor was a fresh and welcome new voice. The author has clearly thoroughly researched emergency physicians' knowledge and practices, and the dilemmas faced by this protagonist's struggles with OCD/anorexia are remarkably accurate and insightful, IMO, having similar challenges myself. Her inner dialog was a welcome ingredient to a superbly woven complex tapestry. I'm continually amazed at the imaginative ways this series creates credible scenarios within the racing industry. I was also quite pleased with the end -- spinning out the aftermath satisfactorily, vs. an "and they all lived happily ever after" approach. Finally, the narration was superb and I hope to discover other interesting books read by this narrator. For lovers of this ongoing series, PULSE is very strongly recommended!
