really liked it

I've read and loved Dick Francis for years, so it was bittersweet to read his last (posthumous) novel. The last few have been co-written with his son Felix (who finished this one after his father's death). Compared to the earlier Dick Francis offerings this one seemed to be more involved with the twists and turns of the plot and somewhat less with the characters as people, but still a quite enjoyable read (I interrupted two other books in progress to read this and wasn't at all sorry). So, will next year be the first year without a new Francis offering on the shelves or the the first with a solo effort by Felix and, if so, will he stick with the English horse racing theme that was his father's trademark or branch out? I can't wait to find out.
