Publisher Description

Felix Francis continues his father's New York Times- bestselling legacy with another edge-of-your-seat read that's classic Francis.

Nicholas "Foxy" Foxton, a former jockey who suffered a career- ending injury, is out for a day at the Grand National races when his friend and coworker Herb Kovak is murdered, execution style, right in front of him-and 60,000 other potential witnesses. Foxton and Kovak were both independent financial advisers at Lyall & Black, a firm specializing in extreme-risk investments.

As he struggles to come to terms with Kovak's seemingly inexplicable death, Foxton begins to question everything, from how well he knew his friend to how much he understands about his employer. Was Kovak's murder a case of mistaken identity...or something more sinister?

The STAZ ,

Is Felix as good as Dick?

I enjoyed this book. But before buying, you are probably wondering if Felix Francis is as good as Dick Francis. The answer is "almost."

There were a few places where the hero gave too much information to those around him. It is something that Dick's characters seldom did. Beyond that slight hiccup, I found the style and plot to be almost identical in the writings of father and son.

Not good

Too far from the old Francis, style is flat as are the characters, If it stays like this it is not worth the money

Okay....Not great. Not a lot of depth.
