First off, i will start with introducing the characters. you have Zoe an apprentice jockey and her boyfriend pat, a jockey. Zoe's sister Harriett is married to Andy a head lad. Pat and Andy have a illegal betting coup going, and all the money is in andy's name, bit troublesome when Andy is found dead at the bottom of the cliff. Did he jump or was he pushed ? Harriett is having an affair with her tennis coach. What will he say when she ends it ? the prologue made no sense until the last few pages. i read this book in 24 hours. Just think it is not as good as previous books, i think inside track is the best off the lot.

Crime fiction not a genre I read very often and a first by John Francome, although I remember when one of my daughters was younger she went through a phase of reading this author. Owning a horse and living near racing stables was probably part of the attraction.
As an ex jockey turned writer he obviously knows the racing world inside out and draws on his own background and experiences for his novels. As it has been languishing on our bookshelves for a couple of years and I was looking for a book that would be easy to concentrate on, I decided to pick this one. It met my expectations as suitable for the mood I was in and I finished it very quickly.

The main protagonists are two couples, Pat a jockey who is unwisely operating a scam with Andy the husband of Harriet, who just happens to be the sister of Pat's girlfriend Zoe. Harriet is the only one of the foursome who does not work in the world of horse racing. Somewhat bored with the lifestyle she gets involved with a hunky tennis coach at the health club where she works in the hairdressing salon.
As this is a crime thriller there is of course the inevitable murder along the way which is well plotted although I had guessed correctly who did it before the author finally reveals the truth!

Although I had worked out the villain,about halfway through,I found
this book up to his high standards.It moves along at a pace and
has some interesting twist and turns.

Enjoyable read. Like other reviewers I had worked out "whodunnit" well before the revelation. But I thought it was worth reading and a nice distraction.
