Some years ago, Dick Francis was one of my favourite authors - always a reliable, interesting light read. So I thought I would try this new novel by his son, presumably. Unfortunately, it was a great disappointment. Some decent plotting, some good characters, a few places where the story flowed along quite nicely, but overall very uneven and in the end, quite formulaic. Dick was always able to make the reader idenity with the characters, and to care what happened to them. When one key character gets killed at the end of this book, the reaction is "so what". Felix clearly hasn't got the emotional skills of his father.
