Review

The Francis flair is clear for all to see (Daily Mail)

The novel confirms Francis's seat at the head of crime fiction (Racing Post)

From winning post to top of the bestseller list, time after time (Sunday Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Felix Francis is the younger son of thriller-writing legend, Dick Francis, with whom he co-wrote the four most recent Dick Francis Novels, Dead Heat, Silks, Even Money and Crossfire, with Felix taking an increasingly greater role in the writing. Sadly Dick died in February 2010 but his work will live on through Felix. Gamble is Felix's first solo Dick Francis Novel.

Felix trained as a physicist and spent seventeen years teaching A level physics before taking on the role as manager to his father, and then as author. He lives in Oxfordshire.

I wasn't sure how much of a 'Dick Francis' novel this would be, as it was Felix's first solo book. Needn't have doubted though: like his father's books, I couldn't put it down! It's well researched, well planned, well written and the story's well told - I've already downloaded the next book and will be getting the third. If you're not sure whether or not this would be worth spending a fiver on, I'd recommend you give it a go - you won't be disappointed.
