Felix Francis co-wrote several horse racing mysteries with his late father Dick Francis before the legendary author passed away in 2010. Taking up the reins for his first solo effort, Felix delivers a captivating tale that franchise fans will thoroughly enjoy. Former jockey Nicholas “Foxy” Foxton is at the track one day when he witnesses the execution-style killing of his friend Herb Novak. Worried he might be next, Foxy wonders if there was a dark side to Herb he didn’t know about.

Dick Francis Good
Very much in keeping with his father's style and caliber. Nice to have additional stories in their vein again. Beautifully narrated.
Nice Job Felix!
As a Dick Francis junkie, I am very happy indeed to see that the Dick Francis legacy is in good hands with Felix doing the writing. Gamble was an enjoyable story all the way through and I look forward to Felix's next novel. I did have a bit of trouble getting used to narrator, John Keating. Previous Francis narrators such as Martin Jarvis and Simon Prebble were wonderful and conveyed Dick's prose with such style and elegance. I did not get quite as much enjoyment from Keating. But the story is good and by the midway point of the audio, I got more used to Keating.
